Modern, aggressive 5-rib all-terrain design to provide outstanding performance in both on-road and off-road driving applications. The A/T3 tread pattern exploits a combination of features specifically suited to provide solid all-terrain performance, superior all-season traction, excellent stability, confident handling and reliable treadwear.
Silica based tread compound is formulated with a chemically coupled silica and carbon black mixture that provides excellent wet traction and handling on the highway, while also improving cut and chip resistance in more harsh rocky and gravel terrain. The silica enriched tread compound has lower rolling resistance than traditional full carbon black tread compounds.
Nylon is strategically positioned and applied in a manner to resist flat spotting for improved ride quality and a balanced, even treadwear for longer tread life.
The molds used to manufacture the A/T3 incorporate a venting technology that eliminates micro-vents in the tread area. This ventless technology provides a crisp, clean, premium appearance.
Micro gauge zig-zag siping in the tread elements provides increased vehicle stability and control, while reducing the potential for stone retention and stone drilling. The zigzag shape creates more biting edges which allow for better soft surface and wet traction.
The center and intermediate tread elements are uniquely designed in pairs affording excellent stability and confident handling.
The broken center rib improves soft surface traction without sacrificing handling.
