Continental adds load capacity to drive tire

Continental Tire the Americas LLC has expanded its product offering lineup to include additional load capacity for its long-mileage drive tire.

The HDL2 DL (Heavy Drive Long Haul, Deep Lug) tire was introduced in 2009 and, as of January 2010, now includes an offering of load range H in the 11R22.5 size. This additional capacity allows the tire to carry up to an additional 435 pounds of useful load in a single fitment.

The HDL2 DL is produced in Continental's Mount Vernon IL plant and features its deepest truck tire tread offering at 32/32" depth, resulting in long original mileage. The HDL2 DL's closed shoulder tread design provides excellent traction in both wet and dry road conditions and resists irregular wear. An innovative lug angle provides outstanding traction throughout the life of the original tire, and a wider casing increases handling stability.

Continental also uses its patented groove technology on this tire, which reduces stone retention and casing penetrations.
