Volvo Trucks opt for Conti Eco Tyres
Continental Tire North America has announced that its Eco Plus truck tyres are now a published option at all Volvo Truck dealerships nationwide.
“Rising fuel prices have increased the importance of finding ways to lower operating costs and improve the bottom line,” said David Misbrener, CTNA account manager for Volvo Trucks North America. “Continental’s Eco Plus tyre technology provides impressively low rolling resistance for excellent fuel economy and long original mileage. We are very pleased that this premium line of tyres is now also available at Volvo dealerships for fleets trying to find a way to lower their operating costs.”
According to the company tests conducted at its Uvalde proving grounds (SAE fuel consumption test J1264) show that, with Continental HSL Eco Plus tyres in the steer position and the HDL Eco Plus tyres on the drive axle, fuel mileage is increased by up to 7.2 per cent over conventional tyres
