Continental Tire the Americas has announced that two more of its truck tires have been verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay Transport Partnership as low rolling resistance.
Continental's HSL2 Eco Plus (Heavy Steer Long-Haul) tire was recently verified as a low rolling resistance tire.
Continental's HSL2 Eco Plus (Heavy Steer Long-Haul) tire was recently verified as a low rolling resistance tire.


The tires that were recently verified include Continental's HSL2 Eco Plus (Heavy Steer Long-Haul) and HDL2 Eco Plus (Heavy Drive Long-Haul) truck tire sizes in the 295/60R22.5 size. These truck tires are three inches shorter than the 275/80R22.5 sizes, but each has 1,215 pounds of additional carrying capacity in a single fitment for load range G.

Tires verified by the EPA for lower rolling resistance can provide a reduction in NOx emissions and an estimated fuel savings of 3 percent or greater, relative to the "best selling" new tires for line haul trucks, when used on all five axles on long haul Class 8 trucks.
