The Achilles Desert Hawk UHP is a high performance summer tire made for Sport Utility vehicles. The tire has excellent summer weather traction, but it will not grip the road well in winter conditions. The circumferential grooves help prevent hydroplaning, making the drive safer. The tire was manufactured with a rim guard, which protects the rims from accidental curb damage. The steering accuracy and responsiveness was improved with the solid center rib of the tread pattern, while the fuel efficiency of the model was increase with the lowered rolling resistance. The Desert Hawk UHP provides a longer lasting tread life.
This tire has excellent summer weather traction, but it will not perform well in winter weather or colder temperatures.
The two wide circumferential grooves help resist hydroplaning by channeling water away from the tire footprint.
The tire’s sidewall was manufactured in a way that it prevents accidental curb damage, as it protects the rim.
The solid center rib of the tread pattern offers linear stability and improves the steering accuracy and responsiveness.
The high silica levels in the tire compound lower the rolling resistance, and with it the fuel consumption of the vehicle.
Longer Lasting Tread
The high silica levels in the tire compound help prevent irregular wear across the tread surface, extending its life.
