Wide lateral shoulder grooves: Wide lateral grooves incorporated in to the inside blocks deliver hydroplaning resistance for excellent wet handling and braking. Center block stiffness increased: Holding the tread pattern in place as its shape evolves. New compound: New compounds improve wet and wear return without sacrificing other performance. Specifically, wear performance is improved by the optimized crosslinking density. Advanced mixing technology with high loading filler and high molecular weight functionalized polymer improves wet and wear performance. Wide straight 3 channel groove: Optimal widths and positioning of the three channel grooves ensures excellent performance in wet driving conditions. Wide outer grooves provide maximum water evacuation which promotes wet traction keeping the tire cooler in the dry. Aqua turbine technology: Gives improved drainage for longitudinal and lateral. Optimized pitch sequence: Precisely designed block sizes reduce road noise.
