Consumer Friendly Indicators

Alert drivers to tire's performance level in Dry, Wet, and Snow conditions

One of the new features on the ExtremeContact DW is the DW Tuned Performance Indicators. These are visible letters built into the second rib of the tread and are designed to alert drivers of the tire’s optimal performance levels. “D” indicates the tire is at optimum tread depth for dry conditions. “W” indicates the tire is at optimum tread depth for wet conditions. When the indicators disappear, the tire is no longer tuned for optimum performance in that particular road condition.
