The Hankook Icebear W300 tire is a winter tire with wide and highly siped circumferential grooves for improved tire performance in bad weather conditions. This tire has massive outer tread blocks that help deliver excellent braking and cornering grip in dry conditions. The presence of multiple thin sipes in all parts of the tread enhances the winter performance of the tire without sacrificing the handling on dry roads. It has a long-lasting Silica based tread compound which also grips the road very well. This tread compound contributes to lower rolling resistance for improved fuel economy, and the casing is built for responsive handling. There is even a rim protector for additional protection of the wheel from scratches in the event of brushing up against a curb or an impact with a road hazard.
