The Alpike tire is prepared to take on any tough weather, providing optimal dry grip cornering and down-force performances in general and heavy snow driving conditions with wide lateral grooves that are formed by the pneumatic pump in the hub. In addition, the changeover has the effect of raising the vehicle’s height and preventing it from sinking in snow to make continued driving possible. This tire not only reduces manufacturing costs through the use of a modular manufacturing configuration, but also lowers the consumer cost burden: It also reduces waste and ultimately contributes toward saving the environment.
