The Couragia F/X tire is made for luxury sport utility vehicles like Landrovers, BMW x3 and BMW x5, Lexus RX and Mercedes M-Class CUVs that need touring tire comfort and sport handling. The Federal Couragia F/X tire has four main circumferential grooves that aid in water dispersion to fight against hydroplaning. The large rigid block design delivers tremendous road grip due to the very large contact patch that the profile of this tire provides. The benefit of these large blocks does not come at the expense of more road noise because the tread features have been staggered to reduce the chance of harmonics. This means a very quiet tire and smooth riding tire on the highway and city streets.
