Different Shapes, Different Performance
All Terrain tires have progressed a lot in the last 5 years and it seems that 2 main design patterns have been selected for both AT tire blocks and sips: the Z patterns and the C pattern for blocs and the straight sipe vs the undulated sipe. Some tire blocks are V walled others are straight walled, some have stone ejectors others don’t. Oher tires have straight water evacuation lines others have them zigzagged. Some retain a central rubber fragmented line others go for more open spaces on the middle of the tire. Some ATs for for a sharp edge edge for their tire, others go for a more round edge. Usually a sharper edge also has larger spacing between rows of blocks.
