Hankook Tire is launching its OE portfolio in North America as the new OE supplier for Ford’s new 2016 F-650/F-750 medium duty trucks.
The tiremaker will supply Ford with four different tire patterns: AH11, AH22, DH07 and DH15.
AH11 specializes in urban conditions and also features extended high-speed driving, fuel efficiency and resistance to uneven wear. The DH07 features 3D kerf technology for better traction and higher mileage lifespan, the tiremaker said. The AH22 features a tread focused on reducing abnormal wear, while also having driving comfort and improved handling. The DH15 focuses on better braking control and stability in all-season conditions, including snow, according to Hankook.
The AH11 and DH07 come in 245/70/19.5 and 265/70/19.5 sizes, while the AH22 and DH15 are available in 275/80/22.5.
The tires’ development have been in the works since 2013, Hankook said.
