Four wide longitudinal grooves channel road water, while lateral grooves work to direct it out from under the tire.
By connecting the tire void areas, these little beauties effectively reduce the 'pumping' noise tires can make at highway speeds.
Optimized tread pitch width and alignment quiet resonance and the road noise it creates.
Three continuous circumferential ribs provide excellent highway stability. The small lateral grooves in the center rib improve high-speed performance.
The design provides a clear channel for heat to dissipate outwards from the center of the tire. Less heat means longer wear. The straight-line bar just inside the shoulder also resists irregular tread wear.
