ALL TERRAIN DESIGN
This modern design features a combination of sweeping lateral grooves and functionally patterned tread elements to provide dependable all-terrain performance. The optimized pitch sequence helps provide even treadwear and reduced tread related noise.
"LUG TIE-IN ZONES
(ONLY APPLIES TO LT SIZES AND THEY HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED)"
These zones incorporate raised, serrated "lug-locks" between the tread block elements to reinforce the tread pattern for enhanced steering and traction.
ALTERNATELY SCALLOPED SHOULDER LUGS
Shoulder lugs are alternately scalloped and offset for improved traction on soft surfaces like mud and sand.
LONG "TWO Z" ELEMENT SIPING
The use of dual "Z"-shaped sipes on each tread lug help provide for long, dependable traction in all-weather conditions while balancing tread element stiffness for treadwear and handling.
This design feature puts deep tread in the center and slightly shallower tread in the shoulders to improve wear and wet handling while reducing weight.
RIM PROTECTOR (Select Sizes)
A rubber rim protector extends beyond the rim flange and decreases the chance of rim damage that can occur if a tire / wheel assembly scuffs a curb.
The high modulus rubber compound above the bead minimizes sidewall flex in cornering resulting in crisp handling.
The molds used to manufacture the Zeon LTZ incorporate special venting technology in the tread area to provide a crisp, clean, premium appearance.
