Extensa HP II 255/35R20 XL High Performance Tire
Toyo Extensa HP II. FEATURES AND BENEFITS: All weather traction Hydroplaning resistance Enhanced controllability Shorter braking distance Longer lasting tread life. OVERVIEW: The Toyo Extensa HP II is a high performance all season tire manufactured for passenger vehicles. Toyo offers a 45,000 mile warranty with this model.The tire promotes exceptional all weather traction. The silica-based tire compound maintains its flexibility in all weather, while the unidirectional tread design with the full depth multi-wave siping detail firmly grips the road surface in dry, wet and light winter weather. As a result, the tire can be used safely all year. The wide circumferential and interconnecting swooping grooves effectively disperse water from below the tire footprint to avoid hydroplaning situations.The model offers superb controllability. The shoulder tread block sequences maintain their road contact at all times which increases the steering responsiveness, the driving stability and the models cornering and maneuvering ability. The steering becomes quick and precise, while the tire is secured against the driving pressure affecting it. In this manner, the driver is able to confidently control the vehicle in all weather. The shoulder tread blocks also provide additional biting edges for cornering. They firmly grip the road during cornering and maneuvering which boosts the driving safety.The tires controllability allows it to shorten its braking distance. The single-cut and double-cut tapers of the design increase and optimize the tread block stiffness. As they are not able to shift during the drive, they are able to create friction when it is needed. During braking situations, this friction increases the braking power and allows the tire to stop shorter, providing a safer drive.The tread pattern of the Extensa HP II guarantees a longer lasting tread life. The full depth multi-wave siping detail enhances the tread life by preventing irregular wear patterns from forming across the tread area. The sipes evenly distribute the forces of acceleration, cornering and braking across the tread area, which lengthens the tires usability and tread life. This same siping detail lowers the road noise heard in the vehicles cabin. The siping detail eliminates the airwaves from between the tread blocks and prevents them from coming into contact with the tread elements, decreasing the pattern noise heard while the tires are in motion.
