Conti gains drive retread SmartWay approval
The Commercial Vehicle Tire group of Continental Tire the Americas LLC announced that its HDR1 Eco Plus ContiTread retread tire has been verified for low rolling resistance by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay Transport Partnership as a low rolling resistance retread.
The tire is the first open shoulder drive position retread to be verified by SmartWay, according to Continental engineers. The HDR1 EcoPlus ContiTread is the 21st Continental new and retreaded truck tire product line to be currently listed as verified by SmartWay.
The HDR1 Eco Plus ContiTread is named to highlight its low rolling resistance and EcoPlus technology for fuel efficiency. The open shoulder tread design provides excellent wet and dry traction, resists irregular wear and reduces stone retention for optimal use in regional hauling and light on/off road conditions.
The HDR1 Eco Plus ContiTread is available from ContiTread retreaders in 22/32nds tread depth, in various widths for retreading.
