Description

The RP18 touring line is engineered for year-round performance and provides unmatched value in its category. Utilizing an all-season touring tread design with four circumferential grooves fused with a multitude of lateral siping for optimized wet traction, steering response, and handling. The symmetric tread design also allows for tire rotations which supports prolonged tread wear.

  • Minimized road noise and maximized comfort (Variable pitch tread pattern reduces road noise and provides a comfortable ride).
  • All-season capabilities (Angled grooves and siping improves grip for better footing in all seasons).
  • Even tread wear and traction (Optimized grooves and siping patterns enhance contact patch for improved tread wear and traction).
  • Improved wet grip and stability (Four circumferential grooves enhance wet road stability while evacuating water for better grip).

These tires provide quiet ride. They perform as well as the other all seasons. but i want to warn you about their performance in snow! I wouldn't recommend them for snow riding. They are VERY POOR in snow.

Bought them brand new because I've read only positive reviews. I'm pleased with the tires so far. It handles quite well in the rain but it has good but not the best dry braking performance. These tires seem to be long lasting ones. I haven't tried them in snow because I live in the snowless area. Great value for money.
