The TOURING LSV Sumitomo's V-speed rated Grand Touring All Season tire is designed for drivers of sedan, coupes, minivans and crossover vehicles. This tire also gives all-season traction in dry, wet, wintry conditions and even in occasional light snow. It is developed to combine long tread wear and good ride comfort. It features Sumitomo's advanced carbon black compound moulded into a computer - designed symmetric tread pattern that combines all season capability with long tread life. The circumferential center rib provides continuous road contact to enhance straight line tracking while its innovative shoulder bock improves cornering. It also has an independent shoulder and intermediate blocks that provide the biting edges to generate all-season traction, while four circumferential grooves help drain water to resist hydroplaning. The internal structure of the tire includes twin steel belts augmented by Sumitomo's spirally wound Jointless Nylon Band (JNB) technology to increase highway stability and longevity.
