Hankook Tire has announced that it will supply OE tires for Ford’s Super Duty F-450 and F-550 Chassis Cab vehicles – the SmartFlex AH35 and new DH35 in size 225/70R19.5.

The SmartFlex DH35 provides a wide contact area with four zig-zag groove lines across the tread’s surface, resulting in increased mileage and performance.

The multi-3D sipes of the AH35, anchored in its tread, improve traction, while the combination of straight and wave-shaped grooves improves water run-off while preventing aquaplaning. The stiffness of the tread blocks promotes fuel-efficient operation and reduces tire wear.

“The Ford F-450 and F-550 deliver excellent handling so it was essential for us to find the optimized balance between the tire’s tread, compound, patterns, block size alignment, and dimension to find that perfect handling,” explains Youngjong Kwon, Head of Hankook R&D TB Development Department.

Hyunjun Cho, Head of Hankook OE Division added, “We are thrilled to be able to continue our relationship with Ford and its top-rated 2020 Super Duty line of trucks. Being chosen as the original equipment tire to one of the best-selling automakers puts us in the position of solidifying Hankook as a leader in global tire making.”
