The new all-season trailer tyre is designed for regional haul applications, a wide range of road conditions and offers impressive mileage. The Laufenn LF95 is already available on the European market.
“With the LF95, we’re addressing the needs of small and medium-sized companies, offering them a tyre with an excellent price-performance ratio which is designed for high fuel efficiency and durability,” says Guy Heywood, Vice President Marketing Strategy Truck and Bus at Hankook Tire Europe. “Our customers benefit from the brand’s many years of experience and get a product which meets the highest quality standards.”
Long life and outstanding traction
The principle characteristics of the LF95 is its wide tread and deep tread grooves. The distinctive tread pattern delivers outstanding traction and water drainage under a wide range of road conditions. The wide, sturdy shoulders keep the tyre mileage high and help to improve grip and stability and reduces uneven tread wear. The Stone Ejection Technology in the tread grooves also prevents sharp objects from lodging into tyre grooves, which in turn reduces the likelihood of punctures and maximises the tyre life. Additionally, thanks to the low rolling resistance the tyre is also very fuel efficient.
As an all-season tyre, the LF95 carries the labels M+S and 3PMSF (snowflake pictogram), which highlight its ability to cope with cold conditions during year. It is available in size 385/65R22.5. The tread can be regrooved, which helps to extend the tyre’s life. The public première of the LF95 will take place at the end of June at the Road Transport Expo in the NAEC in Stoneleigh, England.
