Belonging to BFGoodrich's Traction T/A
family, the H- & V-speed rated Traction T/A radials are sporty,
durable & attractively priced High Performance All-Season tires.
The H- & V-speed rated Traction T/A radials were developed to
provide four-season traction along with five-star performance for
performance cars by blending good treadwear, responsive handling &
dependable traction on dry & wet roads, as well as in light snow.
On the outside, H- & V-speed rated
Traction T/A radials feature a silica-enhanced tread compound molded
into a size-specific, directional tread design that features large
independent tread blocks (185 & 195mm section width sizes use a
"5-rib" design while 205mm & wider sizes have a "6-rib" design).
Large tread blocks provide stability on dry roads while the
directional design helps pump water through the tire's footprint to
increase hydroplaning resistance & wet traction. Lateral grooves
& sipes in each tread block increase the number of biting edges to
enhance wet road & light snow traction. On the inside, the
Traction T/A H&V features twin, high-tensile steel belts reinforced
by BFGoodrich's Equal Tension Containment (ETEC) system that uses
spirally wrapped nylon to provide high speed durability with even
ride quality. The tires also feature g-Wedge sidewall stabilizers to
enhance steering response & cornering stability.
The H- & V-speed rated Traction T/A
radials' sidewall styling features black letters on a smooth
sidewall, & are available in 70-, 65-, 60-, 55-, 50-, &
45-series sizes in 14" through 17" rim diameters.
