Features and Benefits
- Lateral Grooves - Efficient evacuation and channeling of water that helps reduce hydroplaning and improves wet traction - 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 - Spiral Wrap - Encircles the whole tire with a continuous nylon wrap , helping the tire hold 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 - 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 - All-Season Tread Design - Enhances year-round performance with open-slotted shoulders. - Hard sidewall filler - Helps resist distortion at high speeds and while cornering. - CO-CS (Computer Optimized Component System) - Maximizes tire performance by optimizing the appropriate combination of tread design, casing shape, materials, and construction. - Directional Tread Pattern - Maximizes both wet and dry performance, as well as other tire characteristics. By specifying that the tread pattern is to be mounted on the vehicle in a single direction only, the many design compromises found in conventional tires which can be mounted in two directions are eliminated. This provides the ability to include a wider variety of specific performance characteristics such as high resistance to hydroplaning in each tire.
