The Avant 4 has had its cavity shape optimized using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to ensure an optimal footprint shape. This provides uniform and enhanced tread wear.
The Avant 4 also has wide and shallow bladed shoulder ribs, which offer resistance against shoulder wear and improve the handling feeling.
An additional tread feature is optimized blading geometry for improved wet skid and all season performance as well as reducing noise.
The tread compound technology has been focused on mileage performance and reduced tire weight means economic payload advantages.
In comparative performance, the Avant 4 is better in key aspects than its predecessor, the Avant A3.
Particularly outstanding is the rolling resistance and this translates into the economic beneﬁt of lower fuel consumption, which has been achieved with no compromise on mileage.
As well as this, handling and wet braking are better, which give greater potential for higher safety, and noise is lower.
