Hankook Tire America Corp. has added the e3 Wide DL21 ultra-super single drive tire to its truck and bus radial (TBR) lineup.

The new e3 Wide DL21 offers greater longevity and mileage over its predecessor, the DL07.

Hankook says the e3 Wide DL21 delivers a 2% increase in mileage and a 10% increase in rolling resistance over the DL07.

The tread pattern features Hankook’s three-dimensional siping technology to increase overall traction, lifespan and performance. The redesigned tread includes seven main grooves to reduce tread block cracking throughout its longer lifespan.

At the heart of the e3 Wide DL21’s improvements is Hankook Smartec TBR technology. Smartec is an integrated manufacturing process combining the five main tire performance factors of safety, mleage, anti chip-cut, retreadability and traction.

More information on the Hankook e3 Wide DL21 page is at the company’s website.

Headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., Hankook Tire America markets and distributes a complete line of high-performance and ultra-high-performance passenger tires, light truck and SUV tires, as well as medium truck and bus tires in the United States. Hankook Tire America is a subsidiary of Hankook Tire Co., Ltd., a Forbes 2000 company headquartered in Seoul, Korea and led by CEO Soo Il Lee.
