Vredestein expands North American offering with Pinza HT

LinkedIn +

As part of its expanding North American product line-up, Vredestein has launched the Pinza HT. The newest addition to the Pinza family, the HT is the company’s highway all-season tire designed for trucks, SUVs and crossovers.

The symmetric pattern of the Pinza HT is molded from an all-season tread compound intended to improve tread wear. Larger shoulder blocks across the tire help stabilize cornering in vehicles with a higher center of gravity, or those under heavier loads.

Independent tread blocks are staggered to minimize tread noise, and generous pass-through notches are designed to help evacuate water into the large circumferential grooves to decrease hydroplaning. The tread blocks also feature dense siping designed to provide biting edges to improve grip in slippery or wet conditions.

The Pinza HT features a 70,000-mile [112,654km] warranty (50,000 miles [80,467km] for LT sizes) and is also backed by a road hazard warranty.

“The Pinza HT is a perfect example of the efforts of our marketing and R&D teams to create an ideal tire for trucks and SUVs across North America,” said Abhishek Bisht, assistant vice president, Americas. “This new highway-terrain tire has been tested in a variety of conditions, over thousands of miles, to ensure the end consumer gets optimal performance, comfort and durability from their highway tire.”

The Vredestein Pinza HT will be available through Vredestein’s network across the United States.
