R-Tech Construction. R-Tech construction utilizes several design features that work in concert to provide enhanced tire performance.
Innovative 5 Rib All-Season Tread Design. The innovative 5-rib tread design incorporates numerous features to provide for excellent stability, traction and tread wear.
Coupled Silica Tread Compound. The chemically coupled silica and carbon black compound allows for superior wet traction without sacrificing tread wear. An optimized polymer matrix allows the compound to remain pliable at lower temperatures while contributing to lower rolling resistance.
Wide "Stepped" Circumferential Grooves. Four "stepped" circumferential grooves resist hydroplaning at higher speeds and provide gripping edges for increased traction on soft surfaces.
