Continental Tire says its new HDR1 drive tire integrates tire technologies learned from building tires for regional applications, including features developed to combat wear and tear created by rough, unpredictable road conditions. The tire features a "proven" open shoulder design that’s said to offer superior wet and dry traction, and 28/32nds of tread depth for long mileage. The manufacturer also says the tire uses a cut- and chip-resistant compound for even wear and durability.
The HDR1 also features stone-ejection technologies that help prevent penetrations to the tire’s casing. The stone bumpers eject small stones or prevent them from reaching the bottom of the groove, where premature casing damage can start. Reducing stone damage can increase the tire’s longevity and its potential for retreading.
The HDR1 can be used as an all-position tire and is available in the 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 275/80R22.5 and 285/75R24.5 sizes.
