The directional tread pattern and low void to tread ratio helps maximize the tread patch for higher performance. Uni-block shoulders and Rapid Reflex Twin Ribs provide quick steering response and better tire stability that is among the best in this class. Steel Sidewall Inserts are strategically placed in the sidewall to resist lateral deflection and increase handling.

Hydro ARC Channels and multiple circumferential grooves combine to give the AD08 superior wet pavement driving abilities. They allow the tire to push away the water and deliver maximum grip on wet road surfaces.

Inside the tire you will find twin steel belts that are reinforced with a spirally wound nylon to give the Neova added strength and durability at higher speeds. The Groove-In-Groove technology creates small slits in the groove walls that distribute stress loads more effectively and makes for more even tire wear.
