The GMAX RS is a premium, high-performance summer tire packed with smart features and outstanding technologies for traction, handling and durability. A strong center rib and larger, stable shoulder blocks provide sporty handling. The silica-rich compound and the wide circumferential grooves with directional grooves, allow rapid water evacuation, ensuring excellent traction on wet pavement, as well as excellent resistance to aquaplaning. The stiffness of the sole pattern is optimized and has a larger footprint to increase tread life. The tire also comes with Tire Replacement Monitoring (RTM) technology that informs you of tread condition.
