According to the tire maker, features of the 506U include:

  • Enhanced durability: The 506U’s new wider tread pattern incorporates a wide outside rib to resist tearing. Additionally, rock shield platforms throughout the center grooves reduce stone and debris penetration for improved casing life, durability and retreadability. Plus, the 506U’s extra-thick sidewall helps prevent damage from curbs and potholes.
  • Longer tread life: A new advanced tread compound resists scrubbing, cutting and chipping for added tread life.
  • Casing: Its construction assures maximum retreadability and it also carries a six-year unlimited retread casing warranty.
  • Added traction: Zig-zag circumferential grooves enhance water evacuation to provide extra traction throughout the original tread life.
