Positive feedback for Hankook’s e-cube tyres14 July 2011

Tyres giant Hankook has received good feedback from blue chip commercial vehicle fleets for its e-cube tyres, with fuel efficiency and increased mileage on the list of positives.

Tony Lee, managing director of Hankook UK, says that the commercial vehicle tyres, which were launched in the UK at the end of 2009, have built a solid reputation for superior quality and value for money, following evaluation by major fleets.

He also says that they have scored well in terms of low rolling resistance, long mileage and good retreading capability—and that their green credentials are strong, courtesy of lower hazardous materials and low noise.

"In today's market, fleets are constantly looking to lower their transport costs," comments Lee. "This led to the introduction of the e-cube commercial vehicle tyre range, which we are proud to report is proving popular amongst our customers."

There are 13 dimensions in the range, which comprises tyres for steering and drive axles, together with matching trailer tyres, all optimised for use in European long-haul transport.

Tyres available are: AL10 e-cube (All Position Long Haul) for the steering axle and DL10 e-cube (Drive Axle Long Haul) for the drive axle, in sizes 295/80 R 22.5, 315/80 R 22.5, 315/70 R 22.5, 295/60 R 22.5 and 315/60 R 22.5, with the AL10 e-cube additionally available in the size 385/55 R 22.5.

The TL10 e-cube (Trailer Long Haul) for trailers is available in the size 385/65 R 22.5 and as a super-single trailer tyre in the size 445/45 R 19.5 in 2012.
