The New AL07+ long-haul steer tire from Hankook incorporates a number of new technologies that have been developed to increase both durability and fuel efficiency.

To ensure longer tread life without sacrificing performance or safety, the company created an innovative mixing process that reinforces a stronger bond of the materials and generates lower heat - both characteristics that improve tire life.

Other features of the new tire include a:

  • Decoupling groove to maximize tread wear and lessen susceptible to tearing.

  • Profile designed to wear evenly for enhanced durability.

  • Tread design to boost fuel efficiency and handling.
