CO-CS - A Comprehensive Tire Design Method. This method improves handling in wet or dry conditions and reduces irregular treadwear by combining the ideal tread design, casing shape, materials and construction.
O Bead - Rounder Is Better - Rounder overall tire shape provides better balance for wet or dry handling.
L.L. Carbon - Longer Is Stronger - L.L. Carbon utilizes a special form of molecular re-engineered carbon black, a key factor in improving tire wear while enhancing wet performance.
Rim Guard - The raised rubber ridge acts like a bumper to protect wheels and lower sidewalls from curb damage. Only on 50 series aspect ratio and lower.
Asymmetric Tread Pattern design contributes to both wet and dry performance as well as enhancing other tire characteristics such as resistance to hydroplaning.
5 Noise Reduction - Arranges tread block elements to produce noise-cancelling sound waves, significantly reducing the noise of the tire moving on the road surface.
