The Federal Himalaya Inverno is as sure-footed as they come for car and SUV winter tires. With optional studs that extend onto the shoulder, this snow tire delivers outstanding grip even in blizzard conditions. The tread compound is made with specialized rubber that remains soft when the mercury dips, for superb road hug on snowy, icy surfaces. The tread pattern has specially designed, V-shaped grooves that clear slush out of the tread with efficiency. Zigzag sipes add edges for traction in every direction while promoting regular tread wear so your tires last longer. With an advanced noise reduction design to lower road hum, the Himalaya Inverno is a premium tire for drivers who require sure handling, excellent stability and ride comfort in all winter road conditions. Expect many seasons of use.
