Hankook Tire Launches Smart Touring AL22 All-Season Tyre In Asia

Hankook Tire’s all-season tyre, the Smart Touring AL22, will now be available globally. It is entering the Asian markets after proving its reliability in North America, Europe and the Middle East.


The tyre features a combination of zig-zag and straight tread pattern for improved straight-line driving performance. The tread also has a central rib for low rolling friction and handling stability for improved mileage and better handling. The tyre is designed to reduce noise while rolling and has also achieved the highest grade in pass-by-noise level according to European regulations.


The compound used in the making of its tread has also helped with fuel efficiency. Moreover, a special Multi-3D Kerf assures both good traction and an outstanding braking response at high speeds.


“The characteristics of the Smart Touring AL22 not only allow maximum travel comfort for passengers, they also maximise driving and handling comfort for the driver,” said Sooil Lee, President and CEO of Hankook Tire & Technology. “We aim to target the global bus tyre market with our AL22 for regional and long-distance travel, AU04 for short distance and downtown drive, and AU06 for electric bus market.” (TT)
