Tapered Tread. This design feature puts deep tread in the center and slightly shallower tread in the shouldrs. This puts more rubber down in the fastest wearing part of the tire, the center. The result is less weight and improved wet handling.
Performance Engineered Package. This performance radial combines spiral wound nylon overwrap, steel belts and a polyester cord body in a solid, high tech construction package to meet car enthusiasts' demands for responsive handling.
Performance Apex. The hardened rubber compound, or bead filler, above the bead discourages sidewall flex in cornering. The result is crisp handling.
