All Achilles products feature innovative engineering, aggressive styling and premium quality for on-road and off-road environments. The new tires include:

Achilles Desert Hawk HT3
Perfect for all-season, all-road traction, the Achilles Desert Hawk HT3 offers sport-like handling for SUVs, Jeeps and pick-up trucks.

Designed to help drivers get the most out of their sports cars, coupes and high-performance sedans, the Achilles Streethawk Sport tire has stable handling from its asymmetrical tread pattern, long-lasting traction from full depth siping, improved braking from a larger contact patch and low noise and wear from supportive tread blocks.
