TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (Sept. 14, 2016) — Omni United (S) Pte. Ltd. has added a winter tire line, the RW 5, to its Radar brand.
The tires are, according to Omni United, for drivers looking for improved traction in extreme snowy, slushy and wet conditions.
The RW 5 is designed to fit most passenger cars, CUVs and SUVs, with sizes ranging from 14 to 18 inches in rim diameter and speed ratings up to V (149 mph). Many sizes also are available in extra load (XL). All sizes carry the Three Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol for winter use.
The tire features a specially designed silica tread compound for improved grip in winter conditions ranging from hard compacted snow, freshly snowed roads to slush, wet and dry roads, the tire maker said.
The RW 5 also has a directional tread pattern to help maximize snow grip and water clearance while giving stability for high speed driving; strategically angled sinusoidal sipes to improve grip in snowy conditions while delivering stability on dry and wet road; and a sawtooth-shaped tread block design to improve mechanical traction and enhance safety with shorter braking distance.
Thirty sizes are available for ordering with an additional 15 sizes to be launched in 2017, Omni said.
