Features & Benefits

    • Feature: Large Stiff Outside Shoulder Blocks
      Benefit: Helps improve steering response
    • Feature: Summer Tread Design
      Benefit: Offers tenacious grip and superior handling on wet or dry roads for driving enthusiasts.
    • Feature: Continuous Center Rib
      Benefit: Helps reduce noise while providing constant road contact to enhance straight-line stability. Enhance responsiveness, as well as wet and dry traction when accelerating or braking.
    • Feature: Spiral Wrap
      Benefit: Encircles the whole tire with a continuous nylon wrap , helping the tire hold its original shape to improve high speed capability.
    • Feature: CO-CS (Computer Optimized Component System)
      Benefit: Maximizes tire performance by optimizing the appropriate combination of tread design, casing shape, materials, and construction.
    • Feature: O-Bead
      Benefit: Improves uniformity and ride comfort through use of a single continuous strand of cable in the bead construction
    • Feature: Lateral Grooves
      Benefit: Efficient evacuation and channeling of water that helps reduce hydroplaning and improves wet traction
    • Feature: Steel belt construction
      Benefit: Adds durability and resists punctures
    • Feature: Rim Guard
      Benefit: Protects wheels from curb damage using a raised rubber ridge that acts like a bumper
    • Feature: Directional Tread Pattern
      Benefit: Maximizes both wet and dry performance, as well as other tire characteristics. By specifying that the tread pattern is to be mounted on the vehicle in a single direction only, the many design compromises found in conventional tires which can be mounted in two directions are eliminated. This provides the ability to include a wider variety of specific performance characteristics such as high resistance to hydroplaning in each tire.
    • Feature: L.L. Carbon (Long Link)
      Benefit: Helps improve tread wear and resist cracking, chipping and tearing through the use of a special long length carbon structure
    • Feature: Circumferential tread grooves
      Benefit: Evacuates and channels water efficiently to help reduce hydroplaning and to improve wet traction
