The Conti HSR 5, with handling specifically developed for class 4 and 5 trucks, is engineered with new tread compounds that deliver improved rolling resistance and durability. The full width siping provides traction and improved handling throughout the life of the tire. The tire is available in tire size 225/70R19.5 load range G, at 16/32-inch tread depth
The Conti HDR 5 tire incorporates 3D matrix siping for improved traction and tire wear. The open shoulder grooves help deliver traction without compromising tread life, while the new tread compounds have been used with the objective of improving rolling resistance and durability. The tire is available in tire size 225/70R19.5, load range G, at 16/32-inch tread depth.
Both tires have the Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake (3PMSF) certification, are sensor-ready and can be retreaded. The Conti HSR 5 and Conti HDR 5 are replacing the Conti Hybrid HS3 and Conti Hybrid HD3 tire offerings. Some of the Generation 5 tires will have RFID capabilities enabling a fleet to know the make/model, serial number, unique identification number and size of the tire. This technology helps fleets improve tire asset management and tracking the total life cycle of the tire.
“Our Continental Generation 5 tires set a new bar in performance for our customers. When a tire is enabled with Continental digital technology such as Gen II sensor and RFID tag, the tire becomes an object for life with complete tracking for maintenance, retreading and transparency for fleet managers,” said Shaun Uys, head of US Market Truck Tires Replacement for Continental. “In fact, Ford has selected the Conti HSR 5 and HDR 5 tires in the 19.5-inch size as the OE fitments for its new 2023 Ford F450 and F550.”
