Conti EcoPlus HS3+ Truck Tire Extends Mileage
Continental Tire the Americas LLC has updated the Conti EcoPlus HS3, and the company says field tests show the new Conti EcoPlus HS3+ offers 27% better mileage than its predecessor.
The steer and all-position tire for long haul and line haul applications is designed to offer maximum mileage performance, fuel savings and durability for retreading.
It features an advanced cap compound to provide improved cut and tear resistance for increased mileage, plus low rolling resistance for fuel efficiency. The Conti 3G casing provides heat dispersion for increased retreadability. The tire also is designed to provide a comfortable ride. The Conti EcoPlus HS3+ is SmartWay verified, CARB compliant, and covered by a seven year, three retread warranty.
Since steer tires run in a single configuration and control vehicle direction, a design that prevents irregular wear is critical. The Conti EcoPlus HS3+ features a tread profile that reduces sensitivity to road surface, fleet, and vehicle variations, which Continental says allows for improved performance throughout tire life. Its footprint shape delivers significant wear improvements for increased removal miles. It also has a 10% improvement in de-coupler durability, a key feature for maximizing tire life.
The Conti EcoPlus HS3+ has a 19/32” tread depth and is currently available in the following sizes:
11R22.5 Load Range G and H,
295/75R22.5 Load Range G and H,
11R24.5 Load Range H, and
285/75R24.5 Load Range H.
With the Conti 3G casing, Continental’s wide, standardized casing construction allows for retreads up to 245 millimeters in width. The casing offers multiple retread use in both long haul drive and/or long haul trailer applications.
The Conti EcoPlus HS3+ is also available as an intelligent tire pre-equipped with tire pressure monitoring sensors (TPMS), upon customer request
