The intricate tread pattern balances winter traction and a smooth, quiet ride. The deep lateral and notched circumferential grooves provide excellent evacuation of water and slush from the tread contact patch.
Provides biting edges for excellent snow and ice traction without reducing element stiffness. The snow groove enhances the retention of snow in the outer circumferential grooves to capitalize on the higher characteristics of 'snow on snow' versus 'snow on rubber'.
A new stud pin hole design improves stud retention and the number has been increased allowing for the use of a greater number of studs for better traction on ice. The stud size is conveniently molded into the sidewall for easy reference.
Incorporates a dense zig-zag sipe pattern that further enhances winter performance while maintaining excellent wet traction. Variable sipe depth maintains element stability while optimizing winter performance.
