The FP6000 A/S from Ohtsu Tire is designed to deliver year round traction and handling at a budget-friendly
price point. Built for coupes, sedans and minivans, the FP6000 is available in various 14-16 inch sizes along with
speed ratings of H and V.
A silica-enhanced tread compound and what Ohtsu terms a next generation directional tread design is made to give
this model an extended tread life and better overall performance on wet or dry road surfaces. Dual circumferential
center ribs increase steering response and provide increased stability when driving at higher speeds.
The tire's directional tread pattern and 5 circumferential grooves work together to evacuate water from under
the tread in wet conditions. It reduces the risk of hydroplaning and increases traction.
Ride comfort is addressed through variable shoulder blocks which help eliminate road noise and give a more
smoother ride quality. Inside the tire you'll find two steel belted construction for added strength and
Dry and wet traction
Quiet riding tire
As a low cost option in new tires, the FP6000 AS is really a pretty good choice. It's ideal for drivers looking
for a tire to get them to and from work and around town. It has the traction and handling you need, and the ride is
not at all uncomfortable.
That said, you won't mistake this model for a more expensive Michelin, Continental or other major brand name
tire, but that's not what this tire is built for. However, if saving a lot of money and simply having a basic needs
tire is what you are after, the FP6000 is up to the task.
