This radial is designed to offer the best grip on wet and dry surfaces.
1) Curved shoulder design - Enables it to cut into the water, delaying the onset of aquaplaning without reducing the total contact area with the road.
Benefit: More efficient at evacuating water, improving safety in all conditions.
2) Programmed Distortion Design using digital technology - Provides optimum road contact area.
Benefit: Gives enhanced grip and enables it to run at all road temperatures.
3) Long lasting elastomer - High resistance to wear.
Benefit: Offers better traction, increases strength and mileage at the same time.
