165/80 R13 T
This tyre is engineered with three main strengths: improved stopping distances on wet and dry roads, better resistance to aquaplaning and a longer tyre life. Stopping distances are shortened with angled sipes in the tyre shoulders and at the centre of the tyre which provide for more grip when braking. The high degree of protection against aquaplaning is achieved by double concave grooves, bigger in the centre of the tread pattern to disperse water more efficiently. The RainExpert also features visual alignment indicators (VAIs) on both sides of the tread to indicate uneven wear. The VAIs help to indicate incorrect wheel alignment at an early stage so that corrections can be made to avoid excessive tyre wear.
