Its tread pattern integrates the optimised pattern arrangement similar to the Open Country A/T plus. Consisting of block distribution with variable pitch sizes, L-shaped interlocking blocks, shoulder blocks and sipes, the pattern provides better wear life, prevents irregular wear and offers low noise levels.
