The LSR Grand Touring represents the latest in luxury, all-season touring performance for a wide range of passenger vehicles. The LSR Grand Touring is built around innovative design and technology that delivers a well-blended and balance of all-season performance and long tread life.
Asymmetrical Tread Pattern
The asymmetric pattern allows the outboard side of the tread pattern to be tuned with rigid tread elements for outstanding dry handling and traction while the inboard side of the tread pattern is optimized for wet and light snow conditions.
Stability Control Siping (SCS) utilizes 3-D sipes technology to stabilize tread elements providing enhanced handling in wet and dry conditions.
New generation tread profile affording a more desired footprint geared toward uniform treadwear and optimal tire performance.
Light Weight Construction
Lightweight construction and design for less rolling mass and increased fuel efficiency.
5-Rib Tread Pattern with Lateral Grooves
The advanced 5-rib tread pattern has 20% more lateral grooves around the circumference of the tire from the past generation tire for increased wet and light snow traction.
Newly Developed Pitch Sequence
A newly developed pitch sequence coupled with the advanced tread pattern layout provides lower in-vehicle noise.
Four, wide circumferential grooves remove water from the tread footprint and allow the tire to resist hydroplaning. These grooves help maintain rubber to road contact.
Modern Tread Compound and Profile
The modern tread compound and tread profile provide even wear and a long tread life.
The Strategy was designed for consumers looking for touring performance but do not want to pay a lot for it. This tire provides all-season capabilities, a quiet ride and long wear for a variety of vehicles.
Quiet Riding Design
The five-rib, all season design employs a computer enhanced sound quality system that optimizes the tread patterns pitch sequence for a quiet ride.
A notched center rib, along with a refined tread element shape, helps provide even treadwear. Shoulder slotting is also designed for resistance to irregular wear while providing solid, all-season performance.
Four Circumferential Grooves
Designed to propel water out and away from the tread contact area, the grooves combine with the high sipe density and variable shoulder slots to help provide superior all-weather traction.
The void ratio in this new performance radial has been redistributed for increased tire-to-road contact which leads to improvements in treadwear and handling.
Even Wearing Design
A notched, solid center rib along with a refined tread element shape, helps provide even treadwear. Shoulder slotting is also designed for resistance to irregular wear while providing solid, all-weather performance.
Pitch sequence has been optimized to reduce tread related tire noise for increased consumer riding comfort.
All-Weather Tread Pattern
Squared-off tread elements form an effective pattern of distinct gripping edges for year-round traction. Wide circumferential grooves and lateral grooves promote excellent wet traction by channeling water out from the contact patch.
Optimized Tread Void
Tread void, created by grooves and sipes, is greatest at the center of the tread to aid traction, then decreases gradually toward the shoulder area for overall, even treadwear. Variable sizing of the tread elements helps reduce noise.
Durable Rubber Compounds
Rubber compounds used throughout the tire are formulated for durability and performance. The combination of tread stock and tread pattern delivers even wear and excellent mileage.
The Avenger M8 is an ultra high-performance tire for the everyday driver. This is a W-rated tire line that brings performance, comfort, and quiet all together in one great product. With a slew of innovative technology and a 40,000-mile treadwear warranty, you are certain to get many miles of driving satisfaction out of this tire.
Noise Sealing Rib
Solid shoulder rib acts as a "dam" to stop vibrations from expanding and keeping tire noise in check so that you have a comfortable ride.
"Elastic Bead" Sidewall Construction
The softer bead filler is a resilient material on top of the bead in the lower sidewall of the tire to provide a "softer" ride by absorbing vibration and road disturbances.
Wide Dual Center Rib
A solid and wider center rib tread design provides precision driving stability and steering response.
The Glacier-Grip II is a premium studdable winter passenger tire. This design is for drivers looking for excellent traction on snow and ice without sacrificing performance in dry or all-weather conditions.
Severe Weather Rated
High Traction Tread Design
The intricate tread pattern balances winter traction and a smooth, quiet ride. The deep lateral and notched circumferential grooves provide excellent evacuation of water and slush from the tread contact patch.
"D-Squared" Sipe Technology
Incorporates a dense zig-zag sipe pattern that further enhances winter performance while maintaining excellent wet traction. variable sipe depth maintains element stability while optimizing winter performance.
IB-12 (Ice Biter) Enhanced Stud Technology
Provides an optimal combination of design, quantity, and placement of stud pin holes to maximize the tire's traction on ice when studded. The stud pin holes are strategically located across the tread contact patch to allow maximum traction.
