Achilles ATR Sport 255/35R20 ZR 97W XL AS A/S All Season Tire 2018
Achilles ATR Sport
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Summer weather traction
- Enhanced controllability
- Fuel efficient drive
- Reduced road noise levels
The Achilles ATR Sport is a high performance summer tire manufactured for passenger vehicles.
The silica-based tire compound and the directional tread design work together to enhance the summer weather traction. As a result, the tire has excellent road gripping ability in dry and wet conditions, but it is not recommended to be used in winter weather. The tread pattern’s wider ribs with the water channeling slots upgrade the hydroplaning resistance as they eliminate water from beneath the tire footprint. The better summer weather traction ensures a safer year round driving experience.
The tread pattern’s solid center rib boosts the model’s controllability. The constant road contact boosts the steering responsiveness and driving stability, guaranteeing a more secure handling. The constant road contact maintains the tire’s optimal shape and stabilizes the tire against the driving pressure affecting it. The steering responsiveness and accuracy are also boosted and the tire becomes swift and precise in it response to the driver’s commands. The tread design’s shoulder tread blocks increase the cornering and maneuvering ability and power to ensure a safer high speed performance.
The silica-based tire compound improves the model’s traction in dry and wet conditions, which in turn eases the driving pressure off the tire. This results in a lower rolling resistance, which is the pressure that determines how much energy the vehicle needs to maintain the tire’s motion. The decreased rolling resistance ensures lower levels of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, making the tire fuel efficient and environmentally friendly at the same time.
The ATR Sport offers a quiet and comfortable drive. The third surface block technology reduces the road noise generated while the tires are in motion. The tread pattern’s tread blocks channel the airwaves through the tire’s footprint without letting them come into contact with the tread elements and in this manner the road noise is not generated. The reduced road noise levels guarantee an enjoyable driving experience.
