Alliance Tire Americas on Thursday, March 8, announced that the Aeolus HN808 premium line haul trailer tire has been verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to meet the agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership criteria, which sets strict criteria for tires’ rolling resistance. The company says the Aeolus HN808 was approved under a new, more stringent set of guidelines enacted last September.
“Verification through the SmartWay partnership is another step in Aeolus’ commitment to providing U.S. truckers with tires that help them become more efficient, more profitable and more environmentally sustainable,” says John Hull, Alliance Tire Americas’ national truck tire sales manager. “It’s a perfect complement to the new Aeolus Green Tire initiative.”
The Aeolus HN808 is available in sizes 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 285/75R24.5 and 295/75R22.5. “The Aeolus HN808 was already widely respected for its consistent footprint and excellent traction on wet or dry pavement,” Hull says. “Verification under the SmartWay partnership highlights the fact that the HN808 delivers environmental sustainability as well as economic sustainability.”
