Continental Renames Long Haul Commercial Tire

| July 16, 2019

New naming system spells out vehicle classification, axle, and application

Continental, one of the largest automotive suppliers and tire manufacturers in the world, has renamed its long haul tire for improved clarity. The new nomenclature is descriptive and easy to use, ensuring that tire dealers and fleets are able to pinpoint the tire’s application and usage at a glance.

The new name spells out the vehicle classification, axle configuration, and application for which the tire was designed. The Conti HSL 3 is a heavy truck tire, designed for Steer and all-position use, in Long Haul and super-regional applications.

While it meets Smartway requirements, it is differentiated from the Conti EcoPlus HS3, Continental’s most fuel-efficient Long Haul steer tire, by its flexibility for Regional use. The Conti HSL 3 provides smooth, even tread wear, long removal mileage, and low rolling resistance. The Fuel Saving Edge technology is designed to increase application flexibility, making this an ideal tire for super-regional applications, such as hub-and-spoke freight distribution.

The tire is available in the following sizes: 11R22.5 Load Ranges G and H, and 295/75R22.5 Load Ranges G and H. It is available under the new name, Conti HSL 3, starting in July, with all sizes expected to be available by August. The former name of the tire was Conti Hybrid HS3.
