The large outer shoulder blocks provide increased surface contact and provide improved traction while cornering.
Deep circumferential grooves combined with the slanted three-dimensional tread blocks evacuate water. This helps maintain contact with the road and provides increased wet traction.
The inner shoulder is made from one continuous block, which adds stability and reduces tread flex. This helps in reducing irregular inner shoulder wear commonly associated with vehicles with negative camber.
3D Multiwave sipes are cut into interlocking ripples instead of straight lines so they provide additional wet traction while keeping the block firm to help reduce irregular wear.
