Omni United Adds a Winter Tire Line: the Radar RW 5

Sept. 15, 2016

The latest winter tire offering from Omni United (S) Ptd. Ltd., the Radar RW 5, fits passenger cars, CUVs, and SUVs, and is made from a silica tread compound designed to give extra grip on snowy, slushy, and wet roads.

All sizes of the Radar RW 5 have the Three Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol. Sizes range from 14-to-18 inches in rim diameter and feature speed ratings up to V. Many sizes are also available in Extra Load (XL) to offer the highest possible load capacity in that particular size.

The RW 5 is designed to deliver enhanced traction, shorter braking and maximum driving confidence at higher speeds in winter conditions. The silica tread compound delives grip on both winter wet and dry roads.

Here's a roundup of additional features highlighted by Omni United:

  • the directional tread pattern helps maximize snow grip and water clearance while giving stability for high speed driving (where conditions allow);
  • strategically angled sinusoidal sipes improve grip in snowy conditions while delivering stability on dry and wet roads. The sipe density has been calculated to give drivers maximum traction in snowy conditions;
  • the tread pattern has a sawtooth-shaped tread block design to improve mechanical traction and enhance safety with shorter braking distance;

This line will have a total of 45 sizes out of which 30 are available for order now and an additional 15 sizes will be launched in 2017.
