New Stud Technolgy: The regular three-row studs were increased to six rows, thereby enhancing traction and minimizing stud noise.
Square Profile: Vehicle performance dramatically improves through the square profile designed with SCCT (Stiffness Control Contour Theory) technology and sidewall stiffness control.
Increased Total Kerf Length: Maximum winter performance is ensured by enhancing the kerf edge effect on snowy or icy roads.
