NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 4, 2014) — Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations (BATO) has unveiled the Dueler H/L Alenza Plus for premium SUVs, CUVs and light trucks.
The Dueler H/L Alenza Plus carries an 80,000-mile limited treadwear warranty and offers improved fuel-efficiency with a new tread compound composed of 5-percent recycled rubber.
“At Bridgestone, we’re engineering all of our tires with incredible, new technologies that work smarter for today’s drivers,” said Justin Hayes, consumer tire product manager, Bridgestone Americas. “We have taken one of our best selling tires, the Dueler H/L Alenza, and made it even better.”
According to BATO, additional features of the Dueler H/L Alenza Plus include:
- A quiet, comfortable all-season ride due to a finely tuned tread pattern;
- A unique tread pattern and EverBlack sidewall that preserves the tire’s appearance over time; and
- Bridgestone’s Eco-Product designation, as the tire is partially made from recycled materials and features low-rolling resistance for better fuel-efficiency.
The tire succeeds the Dueler H/L Alenza introduced in 2004. It is available in 34 sizes in 15- to 20-inch rim diameters, from 235/75R15 to 275/55R20, BATO said.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
