Its special tread design and its compound are created to limit the heat generated, while the E-4 tread depth provides extreme resistance in highly challenging conditions.
This order rewards the group's willingness to enter and invest in the giant segment, a choice driven by the requests and feedback, which the brand receives directly from users every day.
