Continental Tire’s HDC1 HT is an on/off-road drive tire developed for traction and durability in severe-service applications such as construction, mining, oil fields and logging.

The HDC1 HT is built on the Conti 3G casing which is designed to improve durability, retreadability and traction compared with the original HTC1.

The tire features a diamond lug tread design, on/off-road belt package and 32/32-inch tread depth. For off-road environments, the on/off-road belt package has a shoulder to shoulder, full-width fourth belt. This is designed to increase stiffness and provide more protection from penetrations. The diamond lug tread design combines rotating angles and stone bumpers to maximize stone ejection and is optimized for chaining.

“We anticipate those who depend on their trucks to operate every day in mud, snow, gravel and off-road conditions will be very interested in our specialized off-road, high traction drive product,” said Alex Chmiel, Continental’s director of marketing for commercial vehicle tires the Americas. “If a fleet is searching for application specific coverage that meets their driving needs, Continental’s HDC1 HT provides the answer by offering the 11R22.5 and the 11R24.5 heavy drive construction, high traction solution.”
