3D Micro-Grauge grooves allow the tread elements of the tire to interlock and stabilizes the tread.
The CS5 GrandTouring has 40% more sipe length remaining at half-worn than the previous generation (CS4). Therefore, at half-worn the CS5 will have more siping left aiding in performance and improving its worn appearance.
Wear Square is a visual wear indicator so that as your tire wears the shaped of the visual wear indicator will change allowing you to approximate the tread life remaining on your tires. If the inner and outer 'Wear Square' is at different stages, this indicates a possible wheel alignment issue allowing you to seek professional service.
New generation coupled silica compound provides exceptional all-season performance, improves braking and lowers rolling resistance.
Asymmetrical tread pattern reduces irregular wear by allowing tires to be rotated from one side of the car to the other.
New generation tread profile affording a more desired footprint geared toward uniform treadwear and optimal tire performance.
