Optimized pitch sequence by size which reduces noise frequency, allowing a quiet ride.
Rim protector extends beyond the rim flange and decreases the chance of rim damage that can occur if a tire / wheel assembly scuffs a curb.
Slightly rounded mold profile balances wet traction and long tread life.
All-weather tread, 'see-through' grooves, wide, lateral traction slots and high sip density provide excellent all-weather performance.
Laterally biased shoulder elements effectively conduct water evacuation away from the contact area while combating irregulaar or 'heel-toe' wear.
Tapered tread design feature puts deep tread in the center and slightly shallower tread in the shoulders. This puts more rubber down in the fastest wearing part of the tire, the center. The result is less weight and improved wet handling.
Central channel grooves supported by two, wide circumferential grooves move water from the center of the tread to the two outer circumferential grooves for evacuation.
