Features and Benefits

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: 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: Large Stiff Outside Shoulder Blocks
Benefit: Helps improve steering response

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: CO-CS (Computer Optimized Component System)
Benefit: Maximizes tire performance by optimizing the appropriate combination of tread design, casing shape, materials, and construction.

Feature: Summer Tread Design
Benefit: Offers tenacious grip and superior handling on wet or dry roads for driving enthusiasts.
