The Turanza EL42 is a Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for Original Equipment use on sporty coupes and luxury sedans, as well as crossover utility vehicles and family minivans. It was developed to blend some of the looks and handling of a performance tire with the low noise and ride comfort associated with a passenger tire, as well as provide all-season traction in dry, wet and wintry conditions, even in light snow.
The Turanza EL42 molds an all-season tread compound into a symmetric tread design featuring siped rectangular tread blocks that combine snow biting edges with dry road stability. Lateral and circumferential tread grooves evacuate water out from under the tire”s footprint to reduce hydroplaning and enhance wet traction. The tire”s internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon to stabilize the tread area and enhance treadwear, handling and durability. The Turanza EL42 features a polyester cord body to provide a smooth ride.
