The entire regional steer tire family of products from Continental Tire the Americas now has been added to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay Transport Partnership’s list of verified fuel-saving technologies. Continental’s HSR2 (Heavy Steer Regional), HSR1 and HSR truck tires recently were verified by SmartWay as low rolling-resistance truck tires.

Continental says it offers a wide selection of steer, drive and trailer truck tires that have been verified by EPA for low rolling resistance when used for Class 8 linehaul trucks. Tires verified by EPA for lower rolling resistance can provide a reduction in NOx emissions and an estimated fuel savings of 3 percent or greater when used on all five axles on longhaul class 8 trucks.
