Here are some of the key design features:

• Large surface area tread blocks to provide increased grip on and off-road while improving wear performance

• Optimized void-to-rubber ratio so the amount of rubber on the road is optimized to provide rough terrain traction and enhance on highway driving comfort and feel.

• Enhanced upper sidewall design. The shoulder design increases off-road traction with side traction blocks and the circumferential raised rubber feature protects against sidewall abrasion and impacts. Large shoulder scallops to provide a “mud-scoop” effect for dependable off-road traction while giving the CXT a more aggressive look, to enhance the appearance of almost any light truck vehicle.

• The Courser CXT is M and S rated.
