Continental recently released the Conti EcoPlus HS3+, a steer/all-position tire for on-highway long-haul or linehaul applications where vehicles travel 100,000 miles or more each year.

According to the manufacturer, field tests have shown that it provides 27% better mileage than its predecessor, the Conti EcoPlus HS3.

The tire features an advanced cap compound for improved cut and tear resistance, as well as rolling resistance for increased fuel efficiency and heat dispersion for increased retreadability. The new Conti EcoPlus HS3+ is SmartWay-verified, CARB-compliant, and is covered by a seven-year, three-retread warranty.

The Conti EcoPlus HS3+ has a 19/32-inch tread depth and is currently available in the following sizes: 11R22.5 Load Range G and H, 295/75R22.5 Load Range G and H, 11R24.5 Load Range H, and 285/75R24.5 Load Range H.

The Conti EcoPlus HS3+ is also available pre-equipped with TPMS sensors, as well as a full portfolio of digital tire monitoring systems to meet different fleet needs, including the ContiPressureCheck on-vehicle TPMS and ContiConnect Yard digital tire monitoring system with web portal.
