Today’s sports cars, compacts and performance sedans are extremely versatile. The tire they ride on has to be the same. The new AZENIS RT-615K offers a world spec construction, featuring a new and improved motorsports-grade cap compound that effectively maintains grip as tire temperatures increase. In addition, the special 8/32nd molded tread design reduces the new tire’s tread squirm while providing efficient mileage for street use. A solid center rib significantly reduces wheel spin by increasing the tire’s contact patch void ratio under heavy acceleration. Understanding the tremendous demands the AZENIS RT-615K will experience, new proprietary casing design, bead apex and turn-up technology allow for the elimination of heavy steel construction, resulting in an 8% reduction in unsprung tire weight.

In its category, the Azenis RT-615K performs well in wet conditions. 8/32nd tread depth and optimized aqua tusk positioning, allows better tread adhesion as it delivers ample wet grip performance. Matched with three high void low turbulence grooves, consistent, and in some cases, increased, wet weather speeds can be achieved as potential hydroplaning tendencies are reduced.

The result: A tough, durable, street-sensible tire, whose 200/A/A UTQG rating, make it a great match for the autocross, time attack, or drift competition.
