Aurora truck/bus tires get SmartWay verification
Hankook Tire America Corp. reports five of its Aurora brand truck and bus radial tires have been SmartWay-verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay Technology Program.
The tires verified by the program include the Aurora UF03 (long-haul steer), UF04 (regional steer/all-position), UF07 (long-haul trailer), UZ02 (closed shoulder drive position) and UZ03 (open shoulder drive position).
This verification recognizes the five patterns as low rolling resistance tires which provide fuel savings and/or emission reduction benefits for fleet customers.
“Having five of our Aurora brand TBR tires verified by the EPA’s SmartWay Technology Program is an impressive acknowledgement of Hankook’s commitment to designing and manufacturing the type of high quality, low rolling resistance, fuel efficient and affordable tires fleets are looking for,” says Brian Sheehey, Hankook Tire’s director of commercial tire sales.
“Fuel efficiency is incredibly important to fleet customers where every penny saved is reflected in their bottom-line. We are happy to receive this news and even more pleased to be able to provide these products to fleet customers.”
