COMFORT IN ALL SEASONS. Longitudinal and lateral siping (cutting thin slits across rubber) provides greater stability in all weather, even wet conditions. Its exclusive tread pattern harnesses the elements, while providing longer wear for up to 70,000 miles and improved fuel economy. Plus, up to a 14% shorter stopping distance in wet conditions. LOW NOISE: Specialized tread pattern, construction design and compound selection contribute to a 5% reduction in road noise. The pitch sequence and phasing optimize tread design, significantly reducing internal and external noise for a quieter ride. HIGH MILEAGE: An optimized profile, square footprint for balanced wear and innovative materials help lower rolling resistance and weight�resulting in 47% longer tread wear, reduced fuel consumption, lower CO2 emissions and improved mileage. TECHNICAL Optimized tread. Longitudinal siping and high lateral siping density: greater lateral stability and better winter and wet traction. Innovative tread pattern with four wide longitudinal grooves: safety in wet conditions, acustic comfort. Optimized profile and innovative materials: reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Improved mileage.
