Dual-Layer Tread - Minimizes the effect of wear on wet tire performance by exposing high grip rubber as the tire wears.
Reinforced Sidewall - 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
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
All-Season Tread Design - Enhances year-round performance with open-slotted shoulders.
O-Bead - Improves uniformity and ride comfort through use of a single continuous strand of cable in the bead construction
Spiral Wrap - Encircles the whole tire with a continuous nylon wrap , helping the tire hold its original shape to improve high speed capability.
NanoPro-Tech Rubber Compound - Help improve snow, ice, wet and dry performance by making the tire more flexible to changes in conditions. Controls interaction between polymer, filler materials such (as carbon black and silica) and other rubber chemicals. As such, carbon gets dispersed homogeneously which reduces energy loss caused by its friction.
3G Run-Flat - Third Generation Run-Flat Tires for use on vehicles that came with RFT as Original Equipment.
Steel belt construction - Adds durability and resists punctures
CO-CS (Computer Optimized Component System) - Maximizes tire performance by optimizing the appropriate combination of tread design, casing shape, materials, and construction.
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.
Cooling Fin Design - Optimized sidewall design for enhanced run-flat performance without sacrificing ride comfort.
