Hankook Tire today announced the availability of its new SMART WORK AM15 On and Off Road Wide Base/All-Position TBR tire for construction fleet customers. The SMART WORK AM15 is available in two sizes; 385/65R22.5 and 425/65R22.5.

Hankook says the SMART WORK AM15 incorporates many unique design features to offer fleet customers impressive strength, traction and long life including; a tread pattern design that offers enhanced traction performance and fuel efficiency along with a stone ejector rib to help prevent stone drilling, an optimized carcass structure for better ride and handling, an improved bead profile for superior retreadability and a stabilized footprint to reduce irregular wear.

“With the economy rebounding, availability of the new SMART WORK AM15 comes at a perfect time for fleets,” said Brian Sheehey, Hankook Tire America Corp. Director of Commercial Tire Sales. “Activity in the construction industry continues to improve, leading to an increased fleet demand for On and Off Road Wide Base patterns. Hankook is ready to provide exactly what these customers need with a product they can depend on to get the job done.”

The new SMART WORK AM15 will be featured, along with Hankook Tire’s other wide range of TBR patterns, at the upcoming Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Texas from August 22nd through the 24th, 2013 at the Dallas Convention Center (booth # 17112).
