Continental launches 19.5-inch tyres for city buses30 April 2015

Tyre manufacturer Continental has added a 19.5-inch tyre to its range of urban bus tyres, which promises an increased service life of up to 20%.

The Conti Urban HA3 265/70 R19.5 all-axle tyre has been designed for use on medium-sized city buses. Extended service life comes courtesy of a new rubber compound, suitable for regular braking and accelerating, as well as a 'plus volume pattern' tread design.

In addition, the reinforced sidewalls make the tyre resistant to frequent contact with kerbstones.

Regrooving indicators are integrated into the tread to show regrooving depths. The casing can also be retreaded to give it a second life – ideal for bus operators looking to reduce operating costs.
