The Atlas Tire Force HP is a performance and high performance, all season tire manufactured for passenger vehicles and SUVs. Atlas Tire offers a 50,000 mile warranty with this model.
The tire promotes excellent all weather traction. The tread pattern and silica compound work together to boost the dry, wet and winter weather road gripping ability. The silica compound keeps its flexibility even in colder temperatures, while the tread’s open shoulder design and arching tread grooves find good grip on the road surface to ensure a safer drive. The wide lateral and circumferential grooves and open shoulders also increase the hydroplaning resistance. They disperse water from below the tire’s footprint and allow the model to constantly be in contact with the road surface. This guarantees a secure driving experience all year.
The computer optimized tread pattern creates a flat footprint that maintains its road contact at all times. The enhanced contact upgrades the steering responsiveness and driving stability greatly with the extra road grip. This stabilizes the tire against the driving pressure affecting it during the drive, and it improves the steering response time and accuracy, ensuring better controllability. The special silica-based high performance tire compound allows the model to perform to its highest capability. It prevents heat buildup during high speed performance by evenly distributing the pressure along the tread area, which ensures an efficient high speed drive and performance.
The evenly distributed driving pressure also manages to extend the tread life. The asymmetric tread design and the silica-enhanced tire compound together manage to equally spread out the forces of acceleration, cornering and braking along the tire’s surface area. This, along with the silica compound’s slower tread wear rate, extends the tread life and the tire’s usability significantly by preventing irregular tread wear formations on the tire’s tread, making the model more cost efficient.
The Force HP’s computer designed tread pattern decreases the road noise heard in the vehicle’s cabin. While the tires are in motion, the tread channels the airwaves through the tire’s footprint and prevents them from coming into contact with the tread elements, avoiding the creation of road and pattern noise. The result is a quiet and comfortable driving experience.
