UltraContact UC6
The company claims that the UC6 is perfect for consumers looking who want assured quality in every aspect. The tyres will offer good grip in wet road condition with extreme short braking distances.

The UC6 features a chamfered angle that is in the shape of Diamond Edge. This maximizes the contact area of the pattern and will help distribute braking forces more evenly. In wet conditions, the Diamond Edge acts as a wiper that clears the water film away from the tread blocks for short braking distances.

Along with the new chamfered edge, the tyre also features specially developed aqua drainage elements that are positioned to drain water from the tread grooves quickly. The UC6 tires are available for rims diameters ranging from 14 to 17 inches.
