Features and Benefits

Feature: Lateral Grooves
Benefit: Efficient evacuation and channeling of water that helps reduce hydroplaning and improves wet traction

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: 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: Spiral Wrap
Benefit: Encircles the whole tire with a continuous nylon wrap , helping the tire hold its original shape to improve high speed capability.
