At the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Hankook introduced its AL07 Plus steer tire, which replaces the AL07 this fall and has an improved design for 6 percent longer mileage. The new offset decoupling groove is less likely to pick up and hold a rock, while the outside shoulder is now solid, without siping, for better traction and delayed irregular wear, according to the company.

While designed as a steer tire, the AL07 Plus, like its predecessor, also can be used as an all-position tire, Hankook says. For more information, go to www.hankooktireusa.com.
