Continental Tire the Americas LLC is displaying several new commercial truck tires and is demonstrating its commercial tire maintenance technologies at this week’s TMC Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla. 


New tires include the Conti EcoPlus HS3+ steer tire, the HDL2 DL+ drive tire and the Conti HTL 3 trailer tire. 


The Conti HTL 3 has been designed for less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers and is now available to the wider market, according to Continental officials.


The SmartWay-verified ContiEcoPlus HS3+ steer delivers 27% better mileage than its predecessor. It has been designed for optimal “mileage performance, lowest overall fuel consumption and durability for retreading” and features “a technologically advanced cap compound to provide improved cut and tear resistance.”


It sports a 19/32-inch tread depth and is 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.


The HDL2 DL+ features new tread cap/base compounds for improved wear performance and extended service life, a patented groove technology for minimal stone retention and more.


Available with a matching retread, the HDL2 DL+ is covered by a seven-year, three-retread warranty. It has a 32/32” tread depth and is currently available in the following sizes: 11R22.5 Load Range G and H, 295/75R22.5 Load Range G, 11R24.5 Load Range H and 285/75R24.5 Load Range H. 


“The 295/75R22.5 size enables fleets who spec this tire size on steer tires to facilitate easier casing management,” say Continental officials.


Also SmartWay-verified, the Conti HDL 3 LTL “was specially developed in conjunction with one of North America’s largest LTL carriers for its single axle drive vehicles. The tire delivers maximum fuel efficiency and high removal miles from advanced tread compounding.”

A complementary retread, the ContiTread HDL 3 LTL-R, is also available. 


The Conti HTL 3 is covered by a seven-year, three-retread warranty. It has a 24/32” tread depth and is currently available in the following sizes: 11R22.5 Load Range G, 295/75R22.5 Load Range G and 11R24.5 Load Range H.


The three tires “are also available as an intelligent tire pre-equipped with (tire pressure monitoring system) sensors, upon customer request. Maintaining proper tire inflation is critical, allowing fleets to extend the tread life, as well as maintain casing integrity for future retreading.”


Also on display is the ContiConnect Yard Reader, which is Continental's terminal-based digital tire monitoring solution for commercial fleets. It displays tire pressure and temperature data “for every vehicle in the fleet in a single web portal. It is ideal for fleets whose trucks or buses return to the terminal daily or multiple times per week.”


And Continental is demonstrating ContiConnect Live, its over-the-road, real-time digital tire monitoring solution that displays tire pressure and temperature  and includes a GPS location for tire alerts.

This week's TMC meeting runs through March 10.
