New highly durable commercial vehicle tire from Hankook

LinkedIn +

Hankook is expanding its commercial vehicle tire line-up with a new versatile tire for all axle positions. The AM09 is said to provide increased resistance to chippings, indents and tread breakage. It also features an improved self-cleaning function and an extremely robust carcass design.

Its tread surface is 10% wider than the predecessor and therefore provides high levels of traction and braking performance both on and off road. A new tread design provides improved handling. The four extra wide tread grooves with zigzag design enable improved displacement of mud and water while special indents on the individual tread blocks provide particularly good grip. Thanks to the tire’s solid construction, the shoulder design provides improved resistance against lateral stress and protection against damage to the block edges.
