TYRE: OPTIGRIP EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE OVER TIME The OptiGrip tyre, with SmartWear Technology, retains excellent performance even when it's worn, because new grooves and new compound appear as the tyre wears down. The SmartWear Technology features a highly advanced tread design as well as a unique layered combination of two compounds.

As the tyre tread wears down, hidden channels below the tread surface are revealed to facilitate efficient water evacuation, enabling the worn tyre to retain its resistance to aquaplaning. The dual-layered compound ensures high levels of grip and vehicle control on wet during the tyre’s entire lifetime. Tyre handling performance on dry is ensured with the 3D interlocking mechanism.
