The tire’s 16/32”groove depth provides long tread-life which guarantees its long-lasting performance. Also, its zero-degree belt, which is the cornerstone to its durable and retread-able casing, creates a consistently stable footprint for long and even wear.

Ground contact pressure is uniformly distributed which results in greater stability, tracking and fuel efficiency. The 114R UWB tire features modern cut-and-chip resistance and longer tread-life giving room for fuel economy.

The tire’s construction is further strengthened with funnel-shaped step grooves to prevent stones and other debris from reaching the bottom of the grooves and damage the casing.
