Nitto Crosstek 2 is the next generation all-season tire for trucks, SUVs and CUVs. The Crosstek 2 features three circumferential grooves that channel water away to help the tread maintain road contact. Simulation tests were used to identify tread block and pattern designs that help to provide a stable contact patch and enhanced water evacuation during heavy braking in adverse weather conditions. The tread blocks also feature 3D Multi-Wave Sipes that create additional biting edges for wet traction, but interlocks to help reduce tread flex. Nitto Crosstek 2's tread incorporates service indicators to help monitor alignment and treadwear. Keeping you visually informed, these service indicators make proper tire maintenance and rotation issues easily identifiable. Service indicators are found at 6 positions around the tire on both shoulder ribs. If the service indicators on one side wear faster than the other, the vehicle may need additional servicing. Frequent tire rotation and proper tire maintenance is essential to maximizing the life of your tires. In addition to a tread pattern designed to minimize noise, the Nitto Crosstek 2 features circumferential grooves with dense serrations on its walls to reduce "pipe resonance noise". Circumferential grooves become a "pipe" when the tire contacts the road surface, and the air in the groove is compressed and released suddenly. This phenomenon also creates the sound in a flute. The serrations on the circumferential groove walls disturb the air flow to help minimize this "pipe resonance noise". Tread blocks also incorporate 3D Multi-Wave Sipes that improve both wet traction and tread wear. 3D Multi-Wave Sipes are small cuts in a tread block that are cut into interlocking angles that helps prevent tread flex and reduces the chance of irregular wear. Traditional straight cut sipes can flex more and increase the chance of irregular wear and increased noise.
