The 3-peaked mountain snowflake designates its all-weather readiness, with four wide longitudinal providing excellent drainage to combat hydroplaning and deliver better wet braking performance. Large Tread Blocks (LT Metric) provide better stability at highway speeds and enhance handling while better controlling road noise. Stability is further enhanced through the use of Optimized Lug Grooves that work in tandem with Variable Angled Lateral Grooves to help prevent sliding while cornering. All weather traction if further enhanced by 3-D Shaped Sipes that maintain tread block rigidity, with the added benefit of improving tire wear. It all adds up to an optimized contact patch that improves off-road traction while ensuring even wear of the shoulder lug area.

The triple polymer compound deliver longer mileage and higher traction. The sidewalls are further protected to ward off cuts and abrasions while improving off-road grip, and the Carcass Casing Construction with Hexagon Thick Steel Bead (Load Range E) handles heavy loads at highway speeds and delivers outstanding durability.
