New Hankook all-season tyre coming to CV Show

The SmartWay AH35 all-season tyre

This year the Birmingham-based Commercial Vehicle Show takes place from 26 to 28 April, and Hankook Tyre UK has provided details of the products it will present at its stand (5C60) at the NEC.

A new all-season tyre joins the SmartFlex range. This 215/75R17.5 fitment has a wide tread pattern that features three-dimensional sipes, characteristics that, according to Hankook, deliver a prolonged tread life and optimum traction. The tyre maker reports that the SmartFlex AH35 offers “high rigidity specifically for medium to long haul use alongside ensuring an even wear and substantial fuel savings.”

This addition to the SmartFlex portfolio will be shown alongside existing AH31 and DH31 tyres, products recently selected as original equipment for MAN and Mercedes-Benz Truck vehicles in sizes 315/80R22.5, 315/70R22.5 and 295/80R22. Hankook will also display the on/off-road SmartWork AM09 steer axle tyre and the SmartWork DM09 drive axle fitment, while the AU03+ bus tyre will be introduced with an enhanced load index of 150/145J in response to market and end user demand for such a product.

Hankook’s alphatread retreading line-up will be represented by several products, including the medium haul Hankook alphatread R-DH05 drive axle tyres in size 315/70R22.5 and the alphatread R-TH22 trailer tyre in size 385/65R22.5.

Visitors to Hankook’s exhibition stand will also gain the opportunity to win a pair of VIP tickets to the 2016 UEFA Europa League final in Basel. This prize gain be won by placing your business card into the marked boxes on the stand, and the winner and will be notified at the end of the exhibition. The tyre maker’s status as an official partner of the UEFA Europa League will also be highlighted by the presence of the UEFA 2016 cup at the tyre maker’s exhibition stand – Hankook invites fans to take their photo with the silverware.
