General AltiMAX 365 AW Features 

Starting with a classic asymmetric tread pattern, the AltiMAX 365AW is purpose-built to take you confidently to the road in any weather condition. The high-silica hybrid rubber compound keeps it flexible all year long, allowing it to grip the road consistently.

The lower sipe density of the center rib allows for increased steering response and even wear, with the added benefit of low noise output throughout the tire’s life.

This tire employs a sinusoidal siping system and traction teeth moulded into the waved groove design. This creates additional biting edges to increase grip for superior traction, acceleration, and braking performance in difficult winter conditions. 

For safe wet weather driving, the 365 AW features wide circumferential and lateral grooves that channel water, slush, and melting snow away from the tire’s contact patch, improving aquaplaning resistance. 

It also has a Visual Alignment Indicator (VAI) on the sidewall to help you monitor tread wear and vehicle misalignment, maximizing tire longevity. 

The AltiMAX 365 AW is Three Peak Mountain Snowflake certified thanks to its ability to perform in severe winter weather conditions such as ice, slush, snow, and lower temperatures. 

The AltiMAX 365 AW’s internal construction consists of a single-ply casing for a smooth, comfortable ride, twin steel belts to maximize strength and durability, and a polyamide reinforcement for stability at higher speeds.
