Hankook AL22 SmartTouring Tires
The Hankook AL22 SmartTouring is a highway terrain, all season tire made for all axle positions of commercial vehicles. The special Tread Wear Equalised Stepper stabilizes the tread elements. This allows the tire to evenly distribute the driving pressure across the tread area, avoiding irregular and premature wear formations, boosting the usability.
The symmetric ribbed tread design with the circumferential grooves boosts the dry, wet and winter weather grip on the road surface. The tread elements firmly grip the road surface with extra biting edges, while the grooves prevent hydroplaning by dispersing water and slush from the footprint. The compound keeps the rubber flexibility in versatile temperatures.
The Hankook AL22 SmartTouring boosts the controllability as well. The symmetric ribbed pattern’s center rib closely follows the road surface while the tires are in motion, upgrading the steering responsiveness and the driving stability. This enables the tire to have a quicker and more precise steering response, while the structure is secured against the driving pressure affecting the tire. The shoulder block pattern with the siping placement upgrades the grip on the road surface with extra biting edges, upgrading the cornering and maneuvering ability. This combination allows the tire to boost the driver’s control over the vehicle, resulting in a safer driving experience.
