Daventry, UK – Hankook will exhibit a new bead-to-bead retread truck tire range at the UK Commercial Vehicle Show in April.
The Alphatread range “aims to meet customer demands to reduce the running costs of their fleets by providing a ‘cradle to grave’ tire solution,” according to the company.
The Alphatread R-DH05 will initially be offered in two drive axle sizes, 295/80 R22.5 and 315/80 R22.5. The Alphatread R-TH22 trailer axle tire will be launched in a 385/65 R22.5 size, with, says Hankook, a bespoke five-rib tread design and a cool running compound for optimum performance.
The Alphatread range will be available in the UK in the second quarter of 2013.
The Commercial Vehicle Show runs from 9-11 April at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham. Hankook Tyre UK will be at Stand G110, Hall 5.
