The Federal Formoza AZ-01 tire has all the performance characteristics of much more expensive UHP products intended for sports cars and luxury sedans of all makes and models. The tire features a rigid casing construction that spreads the road contact forces equally across the tire. This improves treadwear, and helps provide the very best handling on dry surfaces. The unique curved groove walls aid in stabalizing the tread pattern and in speeding water dispersion from under the tread in rainy conditions. The Formoza AZ01 tire, while intended to provide the highest levels of wet and dry road sport handling, also offers low road noise and a comfortable ride when cruising on smooth highways.
