WAKEFIELD, Mass. (Dec.12, 2013) — Alliance Tire Group's Aeolus HN277 Ultra line-haul steer tire has received SmartWay verification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The HN277 Ultra is available in 11R22.5 (14 and 16 PR); 11R24.5 16 PR; 285/75/R24.5 14 PR; and 295/75R22.5 14 PR sizes.
Aeolus and Alliance Tire Group said the HN277 becomes the fourth Aeolus truck tire to receive SmartWay verification, joining the HN267, HN308+ and the HN808.
“Gaining SmartWay verification for this next generation Aeolus line-haul steer tire is tremendous validation of the company's investment in cutting edge manufacturing technology and commitment to reducing its footprint on the environment,” said John Hull, national truck tire sales manager for Alliance Tire Americas.
In addition to having four SmartWay-verified tires, every Aeolus tire is now REACH compliant, Aeolus said, which is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use.
