TRUCK TIRE TECHNOLOGY
HIGH RIGIDITY TREAD PATTERN
Firestone's high rigidity tread patterns are specifically designed to reduce the deformation of the tread block and ribs during use. Less squirm means reduced tread wear, lower absorbed energy and lower rolling resistance. (*actual results may vary. Improved mileage and reduced fuel consumption results are based on, among others, road conditions, proper tire maintenance, drive styles.)
DEFENSE SIDE GROOVE™
The Defense Side Groove reduces contact pressure while concentrating braking forces and providing shoulder rib protection. This minimizes shoulder edge wear for long original life, promoting even wear, which leads to higher removal mileage and lower cost-per-mile.
The patented ULTI-Rib design has small ribs along the two main ribs. The ULTI-Ribs divert irregular wear forces from the ribs alongside them, sacrificing themselves to promote even wear.
Thanks to patented Firestone sidewall technology, a slimmer bead results in lower bead filler volume. That means lighter weight and less rolling resistance without shortening tire life.
