A new SUV All-season Touring tire that delivers excellent stability and comfort with the state-of-the-art technology.
Four straight-line groove design for the maximum water dispersion
The four vertical tread grooves are designed to efficiently expel water.
Slanted Long Groove Design on the center of the tire
To resist hydroplaning by dispersing water through the circumferential grooves for better grip while increasing contact area on the road surface.
Sipe Patterns with assorted variation
A total of 148 varied combinations of sipes which are optimally placed on the tread with the aim for achieving smaller blocks – with the result in minimum noise when the tire is contacting on road.
Lateral Patterns on Center Rib
Provides straight-line performance and stability at high speed.
Stiff Interconnected Blocks
Stiff interconnected among bigger shoulder blocks promotes quietness, comfort and driving stability by locking shoulder blocks together for balanced rigidity while also prevents the tire from uneven wear.
The Opposite Slanted Angle Design
The opposite slanted angle design on the tread adds longevity and prevents uneven wear.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
