NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Hankook Tire America Corp. has introduced the Hankook e3 WiDE DL21 ultra-super-single, long-haul drive tire which boasts greater longevity and mileage over its predecessor, the DL07.
Hankook said the e3 WiDE DL21 offers a 2-percent increase in mileage and a 10-percent increase in rolling resistance over its predecessor.
The tread pattern features Hankook's three-dimensional siping technology helping to increase the tires overall traction, lifespan and performance. The redesigned tread includes seven main grooves, reducing tread block cracking throughout its lifespan.
At the heart of the e3 WiDE DL21's improvements is Hankook's Smartec TBR technology, an integrated manufacturing process combining the five main tire performance factors of safety, mileage, anti chip-cut, retreadability and traction, the company said.
