CO-CS - A Comprehensive Tire Design Method. This method improves handling in wet or dry conditions and reduces irregular treadwear by combining the ideal tread design, casing shape, materials and construction.
O Bead - Rounder Is Better - Rounder overall tire shape provides better balance for wet or dry handling.
L.L. Carbon - Longer Is Stronger - L.L. Carbon utilizes a special form of molecular re-engineered carbon black, a key factor in improving tire wear while enhancing wet performance.
As a reinforcing agent, silica improves both flexibility and grip.
Rim Guard™ - The raised rubber ridge acts like a bumper to protect wheels from curb damage.
Directional Tread Pattern design contributes to both wet and dry performance as well as enhancing other tire characteristics such as resistance to hydroplaning.
