Continental's HTL2 Eco Plus is available for commercial trucks in sizes 215/75R17.5, 235/75R17.5 and 245/70R17.5.
The HTL2 Eco Plus provides low-profile sizes for high-cube applications but incorporates Continental's compounding for low rolling resistance and increased fuel savings at cooler operating temperatures. The tire's tread pattern has married patented groove technologies that reduce stone retention for increased casing life and groove geometry that promotes efficient water evacuation, traction and wet braking capabilities.
The tire is available in load range J and tread depths from 13 to 15/32.
"For operations requiring high carrying capacity, the HTL2 Eco Plus offers no compromises," says Clif Armstrong, Continental's director of commercial tire marketing in the Americas.
"Durability, long mileage and low rolling resistance - while still allowing heavier loads - will make the HTL2 Eco Plus a favorite among these long haul fleets with low platform trailers."
