Hankook to present new commercial tyre solutions this summer

Hankook Tyre UK will this summer be presenting its expanding portfolio of commercial vehicle tyres.

At the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, Hankook says it will be presenting new products, along with a comprehensive range of existing Hankook truck and bus tyres. This includes the steer (SmartWork AM11), drive (SmartWork DM11) and trailer (SmartWork TM11) tyres from the recently expanded SmartWork series, for regional on/off road.

The new all-season Vantra ST AS2 (RA30) multi-performance van tyre for reliable driving in all weather conditions will also be exhibited, along with tyres from the new Laufenn line-up.

Hankook says the development of the new Laufenn truck tyres is a result of the research in the ever-evolving commercial tyre market.

The new Laufenn commercial portfolio is based on a recognised brand with high quality products, and innovative technologies. The second-line brand offers good value for money, and guaranteed retreadability throughout the range, not only to reduce costs, but to lessen the impact the products have on the environment, according to the tyre maker.

Paul Emery, sales director for Hankook Tyre UK says: “Hankook continues to build on its reputation for producing outstanding tyres delivering superb mileage and reliability and the new Laufenn product further demonstrates our understanding of the market and how customer needs are changing.

“Our share of the market has grown considerably in recent years and fleets looking to maximise value for money in every area of their business have returned time and time again to Hankook, which prides itself on providing reliable products and service for customers and linking this with excellent cost per mile figures.”
