Features and Benefits
- Asymmetrical tread pattern - Features large tread block elements on the outside shoulder features for dry performance, while the inner shoulder is comprised of a greater number of smaller tread elements to improve wet weather and snow traction without significantly sacrificing dry performance. - Fuel Saver Sidewall Compound - Helps lower rolling resistance by both returning more energy back to the tire and reducing heat generation as compared to a traditional sidewall. - CO-CS (Computer Optimized Component System) - Maximizes tire performance by optimizing the appropriate combination of tread design, casing shape, materials, and construction. - Improved Rolling Resistance - Helps increase fuel efficiency and reduce vehicle emissions. - Lateral Grooves - Efficient evacuation and channeling of water that helps reduce hydroplaning and improves wet traction - Recycled Ground Rubber - Made from ground-up post consumer tires contributing to 5% of the tread compound. - Summer Tread Design - Offers tenacious grip and superior handling on wet or dry roads for driving enthusiasts. - O-Bead - Improves uniformity and ride comfort through use of a single continuous strand of cable in the bead construction - Steel belt construction - Adds durability and resists punctures - Spiral Wrap - its original shape to improve high speed capability. - Circumferential tread grooves - Evacuates and channels water efficiently to help reduce hydroplaning and to improve wet traction - Reinforced Sidewall - Support the weight of the vehicle and passenger even with a loss of air pressure with thicker sidewall, generally designed for RFT tires, made of special heat-resistant rubber - L.L. Carbon (Long Link) - Helps improve tread wear and resist cracking, chipping and tearing through the use of a special long length carbon structure
