Aeolus steer tire gets SmartWay verification
The Aeolus HN277 Ultra line-haul steer tire from Aeolus Tyre Co. Ltd. has received SmartWay verification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The company says the Aeolus HN277 Ultra is the fourth Aeolus truck tire to receive SmartWay verification, joining the HN267 premium line-haul steer tire, HN308+ premium line-haul drive tire, and the HN808 premium line-haul trailer tire.
The HN277 Ultra is available in these 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,” says John Hull, national truck tire sales manager for Alliance Tire Americas, which markets and sells Aeolus truck tires in the U.S.
The company says the Aeolus HN27 Ultra is getting positive reviews from fleets across the U.S. The tire delivers exceptional tread wear and superior handling characteristics and features a directional tread design and decoupling groove optimized for steer positions. The tire’s five-rib design enhances wear and stability.
In addition, the company says every Aeolus tire is now REACH compliant. (REACH is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use. It deals with the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemical substances).
The Aeolus brand is distributed exclusively in the U.S. by Alliance Tire Americas which is part of the Alliance Tire Group of Mumbia, India.
