The Touring LS from Sumitomo is engineered to provide all-season traction in dry, wet or even winter conditions,
while also providing a comfortable ride and long lasting treadlife. Designed for drivers of coupes, sedans,
crossovers and minivans, the LS is available in T, H and V-speed rated sizes.
With an advanced all-season carbon black tread compound and symmetric tread pattern, the LS uses its computer
optimized design to increase year round traction. The tire's shoulder blocks enhance dry or wet cornering traction
on all types of road surfaces. A continuous center rib provides added steering response and braking stability, as
well as a more quiet ride.
Four circumferential grooves channel away water in wet and slush covered road conditions, while reducing the
risk of hydroplaning in rough weather. Added sipes around the tire provide biting edges that deliver additional
traction and handling on snowy surfaces.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts and Sumitomo's Jointless Nylon Band technology that strengthens
the tire and provides enhanced durability and treadlife. A polyester cord body increases ride comfort. Sumitomo
includes an exceptional tread warranty on this model, and is available in sizes from 13-18 inches.
