Hankook’s DL07 linehaul drive tire, the first model in company’s next generation of heavy-truck tires, has a deeper tread than the model it replaces, as well as advanced construction features. The DL07 has an aggressive block tread pattern and a tread depth of 31/32nds for long original wear, as well as an advanced carcasses design for improved even wear, reduced heat buildup and maximum mileage to removal.

Other design features include wider, flat shoulder ribs and a high-grip notch shoulder design to prevent irregular heal-and-toe wear. The DL07 tire currently is available in 285/75R24.5 size, with 11R22.5, 11R24.5 and 295/75R22.5 sizes coming in the third quarter.
