Hankook to showcase truck tyre portfolio at two UK trucking events

Hankook Tyre UK has been announced as the official partner at this year’s Devon Truck Show and Cornwall Truck Gathering.

The shows, which focus on commercial transport solutions, take place in June and July respectively. Hankook says they present an excellent opportunity for it to exhibit its truck tyre portfolio and liaise with new and existing fleet operatives and owners.

At each event Hankook will exhibit some of its most popular truck tyres. These will include the SmartFlex AH31 (steer) and SmartFlex DH31 (drive), all season tyres which are both designed to provide high mileage and excellent handling performance on variable road conditions.

There will also be two tyres from Hankook’s retread ‘Alphatread’ range, the R-DH05 for drive, and R-TH22 for trailer. This range offers fleet operators and owners with a cost effective and environmentally friendly option for their vehicles.

Alongside the truck tyres, Hankook’s newest all-season van tyre, the Vantra ST AS 2 will be showcased, which offers van drivers with a durable, multi-performance tyre all year round.

To further support the shows’ chosen charities, namely Devon Children’s Hospice and Devon and Cornwall Air Ambulance Hankook is running a competition for a lucky visitor to win a set of tyres for their car.

As well as main event sponsor, Hankook will be the category sponsor of ‘Best in Show Truck’ and ‘Best in Show Light Commercial’. Open to any drivers showcasing their vehicle at the events, these awards recognise those owners and operatives who go above and beyond to meet road and industry standards, including vehicle and tyre maintenance and safety.

Shane Kallaway, Hankook Tyre UK sales manager for the South West says: “After many years of attending the show myself, it was a pleasure when Hankook were approached to be main event sponsor.

“Not only is it a great opportunity for Hankook to showcase our commercial tyre portfolio to drivers and fleet owners, the shows both support local charities in Devon and Cornwall, which Hankook are proud to be a part of.”
