Continental Hdr1 Eco Plus

The Commercial Tire Division of Continental Tire the Americas has introduced the HDR1 Eco Plus, an drive tire suited for local pickup-and-delivery fleets that require a true open shoulder design for optimal traction in inclement weather, yet need the on-highway fuel efficiency of a truck tire verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for low rolling resistance.

The HDR1 Eco Plus keeps the same open shoulder design and reduced stone retention from the original HDR1 model, and now includes a lug angle designed to resist irregular wear over the extended lifetime of the tire; a high-endurance tread design with grooves that help reduce stone retention; and advanced fuel-efficient tread compounding.
