Pirelli set to release new long haul tyre

14th October 2011

Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli has announced it is set to release a new long haul truck tyre.

The new H:01 line, which is the latest addition to Pirelli's Series 01 range, features modern technologies in a bid to improve fuel economy and wet grip, while also limiting noise. All three of these categories will be measured under the new EU tyre label legislation that is set to be introduced in 2012.

Pirelli claims that tyres in the H:01 line offers 30 per cent improved rolling resistance and reduces noise emissions by up to 30 per cent.

"Enriched with high contents of silica and nano components, the new tread compound formulations of H:01 tires, (for which there are two Pirelli patents pending), also play a key role in guaranteeing top performance in terms of low rolling resistance and high mileage," the firm said in a statement.

The new range of Pirelli tyres includes the FH:01 for the steer and the TH:01 for the drive axle, with drivers able to use the tyres on motorways and arterial roads.
