Hankook Tire Debuts Its First Trailer Tire

Hankook Tire Debuts Its First Trailer Tire

The launch of the Vantra Trailer tire is in line with Hankook's strategic expansion of its product offerings.

Hankook Tire has entered the Trailer Tire Segment by adding trailer offerings to its lineup of innovative products. Hankook will now offer the Vantra Trailer that will fit most popular trailer applications. 

Hankook Tire enters the trailer tire segment with the launch of the Vantra Trailer tire and the high-load variant Vantra Trailer TH31, both designed for the most popular trailer applications including campers, fifth-wheel trailers, travel trailers, flatbed/hauling trailers, boat trailers and horse trailers.

Hankook Tire brings its innovative tire technology to drive new outdoor adventures with the launch of its Vantra Trailer tire and high-load variant Vantra Trailer TH31. The Vantra Trailer tire incorporates trailer-specific tread technology such as decoupling grooves located at shoulder sections for improved traction in all road conditions.

The Vantra Trailer will be released in nine sizes, while the Vantra Trailer for high loads (TH31) will be released in three sizes. The products are built to perform on vehicles such as campers, fifth wheel trailers, travel trailers, flatbed/hauling trailers, boat trailers and horse trailers, and are engineered to deliver exceptional durability and stability under heavy-duty conditions.

The Vantra Trailer features a high stiffness pattern block and decoupling grooves optimized for heavy-duty performance. Its structure is built for enhanced durability and stability as well as improved traction in all road conditions. 

The Vantra Trailer for high loads (TH31) is designed with a main zig-zag groove that provides excellent traction and water drainage under various road conditions, as well as asymmetric grooves that helps eject stones. The tire also features an all-steel radial structure for maximum durability as well as a new compound mixing system called Innovation Mixing System (IMS) that minimizes disconnection of polymer chains and oxidation for enhanced durability. 

“We’re committed to offering tire products that enable consumers to enjoy the freedom of the open road – and the adventure of the great outdoors. Ideal for boat, cargo, RV and other types of trailers, the Vantra Trailer products offer outdoor enthusiasts the same high level of quality and performance as our passenger, SUV and light truck tires,” said Curtis Brison, vice president of PCLT Sales. “We are eager to enter this segment and look forward to serving the market with our new and innovative Vantra Trailer products.” 

“As our first-ever products in the Trailer Tire segment, we wanted to develop tires that would deliver exceptional performance and stability in heavy duty conditions,” said Kijong Kil, vice president of RE Development. “Both products are designed to withstand heavy loads and perform on a variety of road conditions, which are essential for trailer applications.” 

The Vantra Trailer tires are now available as of April 1, 2021.
