HTR Enhance CX2

Sold out

The HTR Enhance CX2 is Sumitomo's Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire designed for the drivers of crossovers, SUVs and pickup trucks and was developed to combine responsive handling and long life with all-season traction, even in light snow.A high-silica, super microparticulate carbon compound enhances both strength and flexibility for improvements in wear and wet traction, and the asymmetric tread pattern focuses on all-season performance and reliable handling even as the tire wears. Optimized groove depth and even pressure distribution throughout the contact patch help prevent irregular wear, improving the usable life. The compound's high silica content enhances grip in wet conditions, while the straight, circumferential grooves and wide, lateral notches evacuate water from the contact patch for hydroplaning resistance. An increased number of sipes in the tread pattern create more biting edges for traction in snow and on ice, and utilizing 3D zigzag sipes helps retain tread block rigidity for handling, while cross-designed chamfers retain snow in the tread for snow-to-snow traction.The internal construction of the HTR Enhance CX2 consists of a 2-ply polyester casing beneath two wide, high-rigidity steel belts. A spirally wound, nylon reinforcement enhances high-speed stability, and the high modulus bead insert improves steering response.
