Blizzak MZ-03 RFT

The Blizzak MZ-03 features the LINK MULTICELL tread compound to instill confidence in both snow and ice conditions. The Zig-zag Sipes improve drainage from the tread area, thereby increasing traction. Lexus made a great choice by outfitting the SC430 with Blizzak MZ-03 tires as the winter tire option.

Features and Benefits

Feature: Reinforced Sidewall
Benefit: Support the weight of the vehicle and passenger even with a loss of air pressure with thicker sidewall, generally designed for RFT tires, made of special heat-resistant rubber

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: Winter Tread Design
Benefit: Delivers safety and control in snow, ice, and cold weather conditions and marked on at least one sidewall with the letters "M" and "S" plus a pictograph of a mountain with a snowflake inside it.

Feature: Wide Circumferential Center Groove
Benefit: Help maintain good traction on wet and slush-covered roads.

Feature: Independent block tread design
Benefit: Has an Edge Effect to enhance winter traction without having to have traditional metal studs.
