Maximized block rigidity by applying the rib type for shoulder block, given the heavy load of commercial LT vehicles. Prevented stress between blocks by applying square-shaped dimple where a sipe is turned, resulting in better durability. Maintains optimal rigidity balance in the in-out section by applying half depth to the transverse groove in the center block. Improved hydro performance through drainage faster than the of existing zigzag type by applying the straight main groove.
Compound with excellent wear-resistance
Optimized dispersion of compound improves wear-resistance and reduces energy loss, which results in longer tread life.
Excellent even grip force leads to longer tread life
Sidewall protection from curb damage
4 side-wall shields provide outstanding resistance to damage such as external impacts and curb stones.
Improved fuel efficiency with decreased rolling resistance, thanks to the use of optimal compound.
Improved handling performance and excellent wet grip resulting in a 4% increase in braking performance over earlier models.
The UE-168 tire for commercial highway vehicles offers the ideal balance of safety and durability. A specially formulated compound and an enhanced tread design provide drivers with the confidence needed to make those long hauls.
