The AW730 is formulated with a silica based tread compound that forms into a directional tread pattern with contoured siping. The compound is optimized to maintain consistent grip in cold temperatures. The directional tread pattern bolsters traction and minimizes noise levels while also providing a sporty look. This tire is equipped with a multitude of wave shaped sipes that enhance grip in intense winter settings, including snow and ice. The tread blocks features wide channels that effortlessly expel water, snow and unwanted liquids. The AW730 is optionally pinned for studs in the event additional winter grip is required.
