Hankook Tire Enters Trailer Tyre Segment

Hankook Tire entered the trailer tyre segment with the launch of the Vantra Trailer that will fit most popular trailer applications.

The company released the Vantra Trailer in nine sizes, while the Vantra Trailer for high loads (TH31) is released in three sizes.

Hankook Tire said the products are built to perform on vehicles such as campers, fifth wheel trailers, travel trailers, flatbed/hauling trailers, boat trailers and horse trailers, and are engineered to deliver exceptional durability and stability under heavy-duty conditions.

The Vantra Trailer features a high stiffness pattern block and decoupling grooves optimized for heavy-duty performance. Its structure is built for enhanced durability and stability as well as improved traction in all road conditions.

The Vantra Trailer for high loads (TH31) is designed with a main zig-zag groove that provides excellent traction and water drainage under various road conditions, as well as asymmetric grooves that helps eject stones. The tyre also features an all-steel radial structure for maximum durability as well as a new compound mixing system called Innovation Mixing System (IMS) that minimizes disconnection of polymer chains and oxidation for enhanced durability.

“We’re committed to offering tyre products that enable consumers to enjoy the freedom of the open road – and the adventure of the great outdoors. Ideal for boat, cargo, RV and other types of trailers, the Vantra Trailer products offer outdoor enthusiasts the same high level of quality and performance as our passenger, SUV and light truck tyres,” said Sooil Lee, President and CEO of Hankook Tire & Technology. “We are eager to enter this segment and look forward to serving the market with our new and innovative Vantra Trailer products.”

“As our first-ever products in the trailer tyre segment, we wanted to develop tires that would deliver exceptional performance and stability in heavy duty conditions,” said Kijong Kil, Vice President of RE Development. “Both products are designed to withstand heavy loads and perform on a variety of road conditions, which are essential for trailer applications.”  (TT)
