The new General HS from Continental Tire the Americas LLC is a long haul steer tire featuring an enhanced tread design, fuel-efficient compounding, and an upgraded casing platform. The five-rib tread pattern promotes even wear and high removal mileage. The grooves feature pyramidal shaped stone ejectors to prevent stone retention and increase retreadability. The company says the casing features an enhanced bead-to-belt package increasing overall durability. The General HS tire will be available in May 2015 with the release of the 295/75R22.5 (Load Range H) and will continue with 11R22.5 (Load Range H) and 11R24.5 (Load Range H).
