Development of Low Section Height Passenger Tires 650267

The new 82% low section height passenger tire has been developed to attain the tire performance and durability requirements of present day automobiles. A new tire mold shape had to be devised to obtain an improved inflated tire flatness that had been difficult to accomplish in previous attempts to design low section height tires. With this development it was then possible to take advantage of inherent features such as stability and handling, high speed capability, power consumption, and brake clearance. Additional improvements were found in tire tread wear, traction, and tire uniformity.
