Nitto is pleased to announce the NT90W, our newest dedicated studless winter tire to be added to our diverse product line-up. Research and Development for this product was done in the Hokkaido region in Japan, which is known for having one of the harshest winters in the world. This studless winter tire provides traction in harsh winter conditions using advanced siping technology and a unique tread compound.
Improved Ice Traction
Crushed walnut shells are infused throughout the tread compound to scratch and bite into ice and snow for improved traction while bamboo charcoal absorbs water on the road surface.
Expanded Operating Temperatures
Silica is equally distributed throughout the tread compound for improved winter handling. This prevents the tire from hardening at low operating temperatures.
Enhanced Wet Traction
The combination of circumferential grooves and wide lateral grooves evacuate slush from the pattern for increased grip.
Even tire wear
The advanced 3D interlocking and multi-wave sipes provide extra biting edges for traction in wet and icy conditions without sacrificing tire life. Their interlocking design increases block rigidity when braking, accelerating, and cornering, creating a more even contact area.
The NT90W will be available in select sizes in 17 and 18 inch fitments.
