Pirelli Debuts H89 Series Tires for Efficiency and Durability

| March 9, 2018


The Pirelli branded H89 tire series includes dedicated tires for steer, drive and trailer axle and is designed to provide strong mileage, optimum traction and road handling in all conditions, even on wet roads. Based on the established and renowned Pirelli licensed technologies, all tires are tailored for long haul and regional transport services in the U.S. and Canada.

This is the latest collaborative result of the company’s R&D centers in Milan and Sao Paulo in Brazil. The new H89 series includes innovative technologies, like Pirelli’s patented Spiral Advanced Technology for Truck (SATTTM), providing long service life and high retreadability; the patented dual layer tread compound technology (DLTC) with high silica content formulation, which ensures low heat generation and rolling resistance, thus enhancing fuel efficiency and long tread life. The bead wrapped chafer (BWC) and fully rubberized cords (FRC) of the belts also ensure casing resistance.

The new line includes different tread patterns, specifically designed for each fitment axle: H89 All position, H89 Drive and H89 Trailer in the most popular sizes of the US market: 11R 22.5, 11 R 24.5 and 295/75 R 22.5.

These are all designed to provide uniform distribution of load and torque for excellent even wear.

The innovative pitch sequence and groove geometry prevents stone trapping and improves water evacuation; while also guaranteeing great handling, traction and lateral stability on both wet and dry asphalt.

All position tires benefit from the patented RSR technology: an innovative shoulder tread contour optimizing the footprint contact pressure and an even wear in the shoulder area.

H89 Trailer and Drive feature M+S marking, ensuring grip performance on slippery surfaces.
