Optimized for steer axles, the highway radial ST244 tires can be used in all wheel positions. They offer fuel economy thanks to the specialized tread compound which spins easily. The treads feature decoupling grooves and multiple sipes that reduce wear while providing solid traction. Its five ribs and four grooves design enhance water evacuation for excellent performance on wet surfaces. The treads are wide for improved handling. The tires are made of proprietary rubber compound for durability, and they feature all-steel construction for retreadability.
