Hankook presents new tyres at CV Show

Hankook is set to present a comprehensive range of commercial vehicle tyres including the new all-season trailer tyre SmartFlex TH31 and, for long-distance coach travel, the new SmartTouring AL22 at the CV Show.

Hankook’s stand will feature a launch of the tyre manufacturer’s new all-season trailer tyre SmartFlex TH31 displayed in size 385/65 R22.5. Alongside the new addition to the SmartFlex range, the existing SmartWork series that is likewise selected as Original Equipment for MAN, Mercedes-Benz Truck and Scania vehicles will be presented.

Besides the coach tyre for long-distance SmartTouring AL22 will be presented for the very first time on the UK market, which had been a product premiere at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show 2016.

The SmartFlex TH31 is an all-year tyre for medium to long haul applications. It offers 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. The new Hankook SmartTouring AL22, a new high-technology coach tyre for long-distance travel will also be presented to the UK market for the first time at the Show. The AL22 can be used on all axle positions and provides maximum ride and rolling comfort, excellent concentricity, a very low rolling noise and, as is customary with Hankook tyres, optimised rolling resistance and low wear for particularly efficient travel.

New for 2017, the Hankook stand will be featuring a ‘Wheel of Fortune’ which visitors can spin to win Hankook goodies as well as the opportunity to gain free entry to a draw to win 2 tickets to a 2017/18 Real Madrid home game including flights and hotel stay! The winner shall be announced after the exhibition ends.
