Hankook to Exhibit at Road Transport Expo 2022


Hankook Tyre UK will be exhibiting at the new commercial vehicle industry Road Transport Expo event taking place at NAEC Stoneleigh, Warwickshire between 30th June – 2nd July. At the event, Hankook will be presenting the latest SmartFlex AH51 and SmartFlex DH51 tyres alongside its comprehensive commercial tyre range  

Over 90 Exhibitions to Exhibit at Brand New Commercial Vehicle Trade Show with HGVs to be the Focus

Hankook will be front and centre at the Road Transport Expo 2022, showcasing at Stand F4 its SmartFlex AH51 and SmartFlexDH51 tyres. Among the exhibitors, there will be several mainstream truck and trailer manufacturers and specialist heavy haulage vehicles, through to parts specialists and professional services attending. Alongside the exhibition will be a two-day programme of seminars, workshops and technical talks.

Hankook is looking to focus on sustainability with its SmartLife concept designed to maximise the best possible performance of the tyre, from the first to the last millimetre of tread depth. Hankook notes that its casing, combined with its regrooving and the tyre’s overall retreading potential, means the life of the tyre can be increased by up to 250 per cent, making for resource conservation and cost savings.

According to Hankook's analysis, compared to their predecessors, there has been a considerable increase in mileage performance for both new tyre patterns with 15 per cent for the steering axle and 20 per cent for the driving axle. With an additional 10 per cent in rolling resistance for the SmartFlex AH51 and DH51 tyres, these design developments ensure improved fuel consumption and CPK (cost per kilometre) index, compared to the 31 series tyres. 

Jon Cottrell, UK Truck Sales Manager for Hankook Tyre UK commented, “As Hankook is viewed as the leader in the UK truck tyre replacement market, the Road Transport Expo 2022 is the ideal opportunity to present our extensive portfolio of new and retreaded commercial vehicle products. 

Alongside our existing innovative tyre solutions, we will be showcasing the new SmartFlex AH51 and DH51 series. This new range strengthens Hankook’s proven reputation for producing outstanding tyres with superb mileage and reliability, delivering an excellent return on initial tyre investment. Hankook has a product range on display designed to meet the ever-increasing demands made on today’s professional commercial vehicle operator.” 

Concluding, Cottrell invited interested parties to come and check out the new event. “Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Hankook team at the Road Transport Expo 2022. We will be on hand to offer advice on your tyre choice for your commercial vehicle operation. Fleet customers looking to maximise value for money in every area of their business have returned time and time again to Hankook.”
