Construction tire improves wear

Continental’s HTR2 all-position wide base tire, which replaces the HTR model, is designed for 20% more wear volume through a wider tread pattern and increased tread depth, according to the manufacturer

Construction vehicles that spend most of their time on regional roads now have another option when it comes to tires. Continental’s HTR2 all-position wide base tire, which replaces the HTR model, is designed for 20% more wear volume through a wider tread pattern and increased tread depth, according to the manufacturer.

With tread depth now at 22/32 in., and wider shoulder ribs as well, the tire reduces stone trapping and is cut- and chip-resistant, according to Continental. Also improved is rolling resistance, now 5% less than the original HTR, the company said, resulting in greater fuel efficiency.

The design features a reinforced steel core bead that promotes stiffness and retreadability, and Continental’s patented stone ejection system is claimed to reduce casing penetrations. The new construction tire is available in sizes 385/65R22.5 and 445/65R22.5 in load range L.
