Drive / Ride Performance Characteristics
All tires have the following six performance characteristics, divided into three sets of trade-offs. In most cases, a tire may perform excellently in one characteristic but only standard in the other.
Standard Ride Comfort
Get stiff side wall for precise steering and cornering but settle for a firm ride with increased road noise.
Enjoy a quiet, smooth ride but lose some cornering ability.
Stop faster in wet conditions but expect a shorter tread life.
Get long, uniform wear across your tread pattern but expect less traction in wet conditions.
Standard Low Rolling Resistance
Standard High Speed Performance
Get increased performance at higher speeds but sacrifice some fuel economy.
Low Rolling Resistance:
Enjoy improved fuel efficiency but expect less high-speed cornering ability.
