Taiwan’s tire maker Nankang launched a new SUV tire Sonar Conqueror SX-5 designed to be used on hard pavement. This tire will become a great addition to the existing model range consisting of UHP-development Sonar Conqueror SX-9, the winner of «Taiwan Excellence 2012» award, the all-terrain tire Sonar Conqueror SX-8, mud tire Sonar Conqueror SX-7.
The new model got a non-directional symmetric tread design with four wide circumferential grooves meant to enhance traction on slippery wet pavement. notes the technical expert (Shina.Guide)
The additional thin sipes and evenly spaced lamellas in the tread blocks give the tire the required sturdiness and increase its hydroplaning resistance. The tread pattern of Conqueror SX-5 has been optimized to reduce the noise emission.
The new model is available in seven sizes for rims ranging from 16 to 20 inches: from 275/70 R16 to 285/50 R20. The speed indexes are H or V, depending on the fitting size.
