The Rapid P-309 is an all-season, passenger car, value tyre designed for urban driving. Its tread pattern is symmetrical to enhance straight-line stability for a comfortable ride. This tread design also makes the tyre tread wear-resistant while providing superior traction and braking in all weather conditions. Longitudinal grooves keep the tyre’s surface dry while tilted centre rib sipes improve acceleration. The Rapid P309 also features unique silencer grooves making the airflow smoother over the tyre, significantly reducing road noise.

Grooves on main ribs

Silencer grooves on the main ribs allow smooth air flow to reduce road noise.

Grooved central rib

Tilted sipes in the center rib improves acceleration and ensures straight line stability.

Four longitudinal grooves

4 wide longitudinal grooves enhance water evacuation on wet roads, improving traction and reducing wet weather drift.
