The Hankook AL11 tires are optimized for long-haul applications. They feature a ribbed tread pattern that provides crisp steering response and superb directional stability. The kerfs on tread help reduce uneven tread wear and improve traction on wet surfaces. The four grooves channel water away from the contact patch to enhance wet grip while the shoulder decoupling groove enhances tire footprint. These tires are protected from stone damage by their unique waved groove walls.
