Hankook Tire’s e3 WiDE DL21 is the company’s latest ultra-super single drive tire, boasting greater longevity and mileage over its predecessor, the DL07.
In testing, the e3 WiDE DL21 offers a 2% increase in mileage and a 10% increase in rolling resistance over the previous tire.
The e3 WiDE DL21 tread pattern features Hankook’s three-dimensional siping technology helping to increase the tires overall traction, lifespan and performance. The redesigned tread includes seven main grooves, reducing tread block cracking throughout its longer lifespan.
At the heart of the e3 WiDE DL21’s improvements is Hankook Tire’s innovative Smartec TBR technology. Smartec is an integrated manufacturing process combining the five main tire performance factors of safety, mileage, anti chip-cut, retreadability and traction.
