CV Show debut for Hankook all-season trailer tyre
Hankook Tyre UK will show its latest all-season trailer tyre at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham alongside other products from its expanding truck and bus tyre portfolio. The Hankook SmartFlex TH31, which will be displayed in size 385/65 R22.5, is an all-year tyre for medium to long haul applications.
The SmartFlex TH31 features four main tread grooves to ensure optimum water displacement, a chamfered profile block design to prevent material splintering and extra-wide closed shoulder area, which supports high driving stability and ensures good lateral stability as well as even wear.
Keeping the new tyre company will be products from the SmartWork series, which have been selected as original equipment tyres for MAN, Mercedes-Benz Truck and Scania vehicles. The Smart Touring AL22 coach tyre will also, following its launch at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show last year, will be presented in the UK for the very first time. The SmartTouring AL22 is suitable for use on all axle positions, and Hankook states that it provides maximum ride and rolling comfort, excellent concentricity, a very low rolling noise, optimised rolling resistance and low wear.
The Hankook stand at the CV Show will also feature a ‘Wheel of Fortune’ that visitors can spin to win Hankook goodies as well as the opportunity to enter into a draw to win two tickets to a 2017/18 Real Madrid home game including flights and hotel stay. During the show days – 25 to 27 April – Hankook Tyre UK can be found in Hall 5, at Stand 5C60.
