In addition to coarse asphalt, the SUV tyre is also tailored for the soft gravel and sand roads that are typical of the Nordic countries. In soft terrain, the rotation of the tyre guides any extra soil out through the grooves, allowing the tyre to clean itself.
The rock removers in the main grooves of the thread prevent small rocks from attaching to the grooves and tread blocks of the tyre. The self-cleaning tread pattern minimises the penetration of sharp rocks into the tyre. Other road users will also appreciate the fact that fewer rocks will fly out of the grooves.
The Double Mud Stopper on the bead area of the tyre extends the operating life of the tyre and the rim. The mud stopper prevents dirt, mud, and small rocks from entering the area between the tyre and the rim.
