Coupled Silica Tread Compound. The tread compound contains a homogeneous tire filler system that includes chemically-coupled precipitated silica and carbon black. The silica allows superior wet traction without sacrificing tread wear.
Rim Protector. A rubber 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.
W-Speed Rated. Designed to handle speeds up to 168 mph (270 km/h) when tested on an indoor test wheel.
Spiral Wound Nylon Overwrap (S.N.O.W.). Spiral wound nylon overwrap combats centrifugal force under high-speed applications. This ability inhibits tire 'growth' and maintains stability and carcass integrity across the entire speed range of the tire.
