Continental rolls out tire for motor coaches
Continental Tire the Americas LLC is introducing the HSL1 Coach, a premium steer and all-position tire for long-distance motor coach use.
The tire will officially be unveiled at this week's Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky.
"Not only does the HSL1 Coach offer a quiet ride, but (it also offers) a low rolling resistance compound and a special tread design" in order to provide "excellent fuel economy," according to Continental officials.
The tire will be available next month in size 315/80R22.5. It meets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay criteria, note officials.
