A completely new tire concept has resulted in a development which goes far beyond body constructions, cord materials, compounds, and tread designs.
Basically this is a new, shaped tire that offers significant improvements in tire safety, durability, and performance.
Since this new tire, the “LXX, “ utilizes a new rim which is large in diameter and low in stresses, the automotive engineer is afforded greater latitude in optimizing braking systems.
