The winter RW06 uses silica compounds which are helpful in providing stability on now only snow and icy roads but slushy surfaces. Cutting-edge tie-bars stabilise alignment on snowy and icy roads by maximising handling performance.
Straight and 2 semi zigzag grooves
Based on 3 main grooves to secure safety on wet roads, the tyre is designed to satisfy both hydroplaning and snow performance by accepting the straight centre and 2 surrounding zigzag grooves.
Employing the new profile tie-bar
The tie-bar along the wall of blocks in the shoulder helps to secure dry handling and ice and snow traction competence. Adding kerfs in the shoulder tie-bar means snow performance is not reduced even after the mid-term abraison.
Cross block system
By crossing and linking thread blocks, alignment safety and braking performance on the icy roads are secured.
Cliff groove maximises the snow edge effect on the groove wall.
Wide, high-tensile steel belts
Enhanced tread strength for faster steering response and longer life.
Max-strength bead construction
Maximum steering response, high-speed stability and durability.
