The AZ850 is formulated with an optimized rubber compound that forms into an asymmetric tread pattern that delivers excellent wet and dry traction. The tread simultaneously functions to minimize heat build-up to bolster performance and enhance tread wear. This tire is equipped with oblique, lateral grooves within the tread blocks that amplify the AZ850's water evacuation properties to combat hydroplaning. Tremendous shoulder tread blocks furnish the tire's curb section, where cornering force is primarily exerted. This feature allows for the tire to maintain rigidity during sever turning applications.
