Directional Tread Pattern - 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.
Lateral Grooves - Efficient evacuation and channeling of water that helps reduce hydroplaning and improves wet traction
Spiral Wrap - Encircles the whole tire with a continuous nylon wrap , helping the tire hold its original shape to improve high speed capability.
L.L. Carbon (Long Link) - Helps improve tread wear and resist cracking, chipping and tearing through the use of a special long length carbon structure
Continuous Center Rib - 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.
Steel belt construction - Adds durability and resists punctures
Rim Guard - Protects wheels from curb damage using a raised rubber ridge that acts like a bumper
