OVERALL TREAD DESIGN AND COMPOUND FEATURES
Provides winter capabilities while maintaining competitive wet and dry performance.
PATENTED “SNOW-GROOVE” DESIGN TECHNOLOGY
Provides biting edges for excellent snow and ice traction without reducing tread element stiffness. The snow groove enhances the retention of snow in the outer circumferential grooves to capitalize on the higher traction characteristics of “snow on snow” versus “snow on rubber”.
D SQUARED SIPE TECHNOLOGY (DENSITY x DEPTH) INCORPORATING A DENSE ZIG-ZAG SIPE PATTERN
Further enhances winter performance while maintaining excellent wet traction. The sipes are deep to provide performance benefits throughout the life of the tire.
SAWTOOTH CENTER CIRCUMFERENTIAL RIB AND BLOCKY TREAD ELEMENTS Enhance stability and even treadwear in all types of weather conditions.
A MULTITUDE OF STRATEGICALLY-PLACED STUD PIN HOLESDelivers optimum traction on ice.
COMPUTER-GENERATED RANDOM PITCH SEQUENCE IN TREAD PATTERN
Reduces tire noise.
OPTIMIZED TIRE PROFILE SHAPE
Evenly distributes contact pressure for balanced treadwear.
