Improved safety against aquaplaning.
Wide tread grooves displace more water and optimize the tire's contact area with the road - for greater safety in wet conditions.

Improved handling on wet surfaces
The special rain tire compound increases the effictive grip on the road; large, rigid shoulder blocks reduce deformation when cornering. These two combined improves handling, especially when cornering on wet roads.

Very good traction on snow
High sipe density increases crushing of snow for a better traction.
