FORT MILL, S.C. — Continental Tire the Americas L.L.C. has expanded its construction tire portfolio with two additional sizes of the HSC 3 steer/all-position tire.
The 12R22.5 and 12R24.5 sizes will be available beginning in May. Matching retreads are also available with the ContiTread HSC 3 and ContiTread HDC 3 drive tire.
The Conti HSC 3 "delivers significant benefits over its predecessor," including an estimated 11% mileage improvement and twice the resistance to cuts and chips versus the HSC1, the company said.
The off-road belt package delivers improved penetration resistance. Built on Continental's 3G casing for reduced heat build-up and improved retreadability, the tire also features a wider tread platform to increase mileage.
The Conti HSC 3 answers demands from the market, including on-road mileage, thick sidewall reinforcement and stone ejectors in the tread pattern for self-cleaning to prevent stone drilling, the company said. As an intelligent tire, it is ready for Continental's digital tire monitoring solutions to identify punctures and creeping air loss.
