Continental Htl2 Eco Plus Low Platform Trailer Tire

Continental Tire the Americas’ HTL2 Eco Plus low-platform trailer tire is available in sizes 215/75R17.5, 235/75R17.5 and 245/70R17.5, providing low-profile sizes for high cube applications while including compounding for low rolling resistance and increased fuel savings at cooler operating temperatures.

The tire’s tread pattern features groove technologies designed to reduce stone retention for increased casing life, along with groove geometry that promotes efficient water evacuation, traction and wet braking capabilities throughout the tire’s life. Sturdy 18-ply construction helps allow for heavy capacity with long original mileage.

The tire is available in load range J and tread depths from 13/32nds to 15/32nds.
