Federal debuts Formoza AZ-01 passenger tire

Federal Corp. showcased its flagship tire, the Formoza AZ-01, at the recently completed Autopromotec Show in Italy.

The new tire is an asymmetric passenger tire that features “great performance, combined with low noise and good levels of wet grip,” Geoffrey Chang, Federal’s marketing department manager, told MTD at the show.

The Formoza AZ-01 tire line, now available in the U.S., comes in W-, V- and H-speed ratings in sizes ranging from 65-series to 40-series. It is available in rim sizes from 15-inch to 18-inch. Features of the tire are an outside tread pattern with “well-balanced rigidity that spreads pressure equally on the contact patch for excellent dry surface handling,” Chang said.

Inside-curved groove walls aid shoulder water dispersal for “stability and safety on wet roads at high speeds, Chang added. Federal uses five different block in the tread to optimize noise reduction.

The Formoza AZ-01 also will have five run-flat sizes available. These will be in 16-inch and 17-inch configurations.
