UNI-T is an acronym for ``Ultimate Network of Intelligent Tire Technology.'' It includes three core technologies: Computer-Optimized Component System, which uses a super computer to develop the ideal combination of tread design, casing shape, materials and construction for a particular application; O-Bead, which eliminates overlapped joints in the bead assembly for improved driving and handling stability; and Long Link Carbon, an advanced form of carbon black that absorbs road stress over a larger area, producing a stronger tire that is better able to resist cracking, chipping, tearing and excessive wear, Bridgestone/Firestone said.
Eagle F1 GS-D EMT: run-flat tire.
Features: Lighter weight; optimized tire shape; sidewall inserts that employ a special rubber compound for improved run-flat mileage and performance, without increasing weight or sacrificing performance, Goodyear said; able to travel up to 100 miles at 55 mph without inflation pressure.
Goodyear spent 18 months developing the Eagle F1 GS-D EMT run-flat tire to meet Lexus' specifications for use as a $400 original equipment option on the 2002 Lexus SC 430 luxury car. The tire also will be available in the replacement market.
XTLA L2T: low-profile grader and loader tire.
