- Arrowhead Tread Pattern
Expels water, snow, and slush while providing exceptional lateral grip
- Cryo-Silan Based Compound
The optimal combination of silica, Canola oil, and flexible natural rubber combined with new tread design, results in significant reduction in rolling resistance, fuel saving, and lower carbon dioxide emissions.
