The pattern is built to be extra tough against uneven wear, chips, cuts, and tearing. The combination of two differently designed zig-zag grooves, along with its wide & deep tread, allows the pattern to provide increased mileage and improved traction performance.
Technology of ejecting stone
Asymmertic groove helps eject stones.
Zig zag traction groove
Improves traction and braking performance by expanding the point of intersection through four zig zag groove.
Optimized shoulder design
Optimized shoulder profile and unique shoulder wall grooves help deliver excellent resistance to uneven rib wear.
Minimized motion of belt for low heat generation.
Minimized tire deformation with optimized foot shape offers control on uneven surfaces.
Minimum bead mobility for maximum retreadability.
Long Distance for Highway, Comfortable Road Condition, Maximum Mileage Long haul segment tires operating on long distance are designed to endure long-distance, high-speed travel (mostly linear driving maneuvers). For these products, belt durability is one of the most important features so that the models can endure heat buildup resulting from long-distance, high-speed driving.
Medium Distance for local Road Condition, Optimal Long Tread Life Regional haul models are designed for mid- to long-distance travel that is usually covered within a day. The models feature the greatest variety of driving conditions as well as the most varied vehicle type, travel speed, and deadweight tonnage.
City Bus, Urban Traffic City traffic segment models are used mostly within city premises with shorter travel distance. The repeated travel in/between section(s) involves frequent and multiple stop or stop and go motions, making the tires particularly vulnerable to abrasion.
Mixed Service, Off Road
On & Off, Construction Used primarily in construction or building sites, on & off segment models are designed for shorter travel distance and sometimes divided into on & off (with off road ratio of less than 10%) and off (with off road ratio of 10% or higher) road categories. On & off tires are used mostly for dump trucks that drive rather slowly.
Mud & Snow
Snow Winter segment models have reinforced the snow/ice traction feature of ordinary regional haul segment products. The models are divided into several groups according to each region’s snowfall and snow properties. As such, various usages are available according to the regional preferences.
