Hankook OE on Ford F-650/F-750

The AH11 is one of four Hankook patterns approved for fitment

Four Hankook tyre patterns will be shipped to Ford in North America as original equipment fitments for the new 2016 F-650 and F-750 medium duty trucks. The tyre maker will supply its AH11 and DH07 patterns in sizes 245/70R19.5 and 265/70R19.5, while the AH22 and DH15 will be available in size 275/80R22.5.

Hankook Tire says it has been involved in the development of the Ford 2016 F-650/F-750 since 2013 and considers this OE contract to be “a strategic advancement of Hankook Tire as a global credible partner in North America.” The company has provided Ford with tyres since 1999 and previously supplied original equipment products for a number of the manufacturer’s vehicles, including the Explorer, Edge, Mustang and F-150 – the best-selling pick-up truck in North America.

Commenting on the newly-announced deal, Hankook Tire vice-chairman and CEO Seung Hwa Suh said: “Hankook Tire is currently focusing on diversifying our radial truck tyre line-up, and the recent Ford 2016 F-650/F-750 OE supply agreement with Ford will be the foundation that we build on to accelerate our business in North America.”
