Low Platform, High Load Capacity
A new, low platform trailer tire from Continental Tire the Americas, LLC offers a unique combination of structural durability and improved fuel economy.
Continental’s HTL2 Eco Plus (Heavy Trailer Long-Haul) is now available for sale for commercial trucks in sizes 215/75R17.5, 235/75R17.5 and 245/70R17.5, said Continental’s director of commercial tire marketing in the Americas, Clif Armstrong.
The HTL2 Eco Plus provides low profile sizes for high cube applications, but incorporates Continental’s exclusive compounding for low rolling resistance and increased fuel savings at cooler operating temperatures. The tire’s tread pattern has married two Continental design favorites – patented groove technologies that reduce stone retention for increased casing life, along with innovative groove geometry that promotes efficient water evacuation, traction and wet braking capabilities throughout the tire’s life.
“Sturdy, 18-ply construction allows this tire to operate efficiently at heavy capacity with long original mileage and low overall cost per mile,” Mr. Armstrong said. “For operations requiring high carrying capacity, the HTL2 Eco Plus offers no compromises. Durability, long mileage and low rolling resistance – while still allowing heavier loads – will make the HTL2 Eco Plus a favorite among these long haul fleets with low platform trailers.”
The HTL2 Eco Plus is available in load range J and tread depths from 13 to 15/32nds.
