Linehaul steer tire receives SmartWay OK

Dec. 12, 2013

A linehaul steer tire from Aeolus has been verified by SmartWay as having fuel-saving benefits under the EPA’s SmartWay program.

The Aeolus HN277 Ultra is the fourth tire from Aeolus to receive SmartWay verification, joining the HN267 premium linehaul steer tire, HN308+ premium linehaul drive tire, and the HN808 premium linehaul trailer tire.  The HN277 Ultra is available in the following sizes: 11R22.5 (14 and 16 PR), 11R24.5 16 PR, 285/75/R24.5 14 PR, and 295/75R22.5 14 PR.

“Gaining SmartWay verification for this next generation Aeolus line-haul steer tire is tremendous validation of the company’s investment in cutting edge manufacturing technology and commitment to reducing its footprint on the environment,” said John Hull, national truck tire sales manager for Alliance Tire Americas, which markets and sells Aeolus truck tires in the U.S.

The Aeolus HN27 Ultra features a directional tread design and decoupling groove optimized for steer positions.  The tire’s five-rib design enhances wear and stability.
