Two center wide circumferential grooves efficiently direct water away amd enhance superior wet handling. Added sipes in the block pattern normalize the tire surface hardness, thus incresing comfort and buffering the noise generated from the road. Designed by Nankang's NSS (Noise Simulation System), the pattern is arranged to lower the noise between the pattern blocks.
The main purpose for the development of “Couragia F/X” tire is to suit the need for supporting the 3H of LSUV: High horse power, High center of gravity, and High chassis.
Designed in an asymmetric pattern with different functionalities in the inner and outer parts of the tire, this state-of-the-art design delivers the enjoyment of having maneuverability, comfort, and tranquility for the drivers. Four main grooves enhances water dispersion to elevate stability and handling against hydroplaning.
Center rib directs on-centered momentum, provides comfort,and decreases tire wear. Large ultra rigid blocks enhance on-road surface contact, deliver outstanding dry grip, and promote steering accuracy. The fine-sliced blocks effectively lower noise level during on-road contact and increase riding comfort.
By appropriately crisscrossing patterns, it decreases noise level that is resulted by overlapping patterns. Equipped with interconnected blocks between tire shoulder and blocks, thusprovide a more blanced rigidity; at the same time, less noise, better comfortand overall safety have been enhanced. Uneven wear can also be efficiently controlled with such design.
Pirelli Winter Carving Edge and Winter Carving radials are Studdable Winter tires that were developed for the drivers of sport cars, coupes, sedans and minivans, as well as CUVs and SUVs. While designed to accept tire studs to enhance traction on packed snow and ice, they can also be used without studs if desired. Winter Carving radials are designed to perform in wet and dry conditions, as well as enhance overall traction in snow and on ice.
Winter Carving radials use Pirelli's Adaptive Compound Technology (ACT) to blend winter performance with wear resistance. They feature a directional tread design with rounded shoulders to increase hydroplaning resistance on wet and slush-covered roads while enhancing dry road handling. High density lateral sipes across the face of the tire enhance packed snow starting and stopping traction while optional alternating rows of metal studs in the shoulder tread blocks and center zone increase traction on icy roads.
Pirelli Winter Carving radials meet the industry,s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol.
Install Pirelli Winter Carving tires in sets of four only.
Due to the traction capabilities of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge and Winter Carving radials, Pirelli recommends using them only in sets of four to provide the best handling characteristics and tire performance.
