Key Benefits

  • High aquaplaning resistance

    High aquaplaning resistance

    Enjoy wet-weather performance throughout the life of your tire. As the tread surface wears, it reveals a second layer of grooves that act as new water evacuation channels. Even after 20,000km, the OptiGrip delivered better aquaplaning resistance than one new tire from a leading competitor tested.*

  • Better wet braking and handling

    Better wet braking and handling

    The OptiGrip’s SmartWear Technology delivers superb braking and handling performance on wet roads. The bottom layer’s hidden grooves and new compound give your tire a second life. When tested after 30,000km, the OptiGrip delivered 20% shorter braking distance and twice as much wet control as competitors’ tires.*

  • Responsive handling on dry roads

    Responsive handling on dry roads

    The OptiGrip offers responsive dry handling thanks to its unique 3D interlocking mechanism and two-layer design. The top layer provides optimal stiffness for dry handling, while also prolonging tire life.

  • Quiet, comfortable ride

    Quiet, comfortable ride

    The tread pattern is designed to keep noise level down, so that journeys are quieter and more comfortable.

* Tested against two leading competitors by TÜV SÜD Automotive in April 2008; tire size: 225/45R17; test car: VW Golf; report #76230122-1
