Hankook debuts steer tire


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.
