The PS2 features side-by-side tread rubber compounds molded into an asymmetric design with large outer shoulder blocks and continuous intermediate and center ribs to tune the outboard tread for dry traction and inboard tread for wet traction. A distinct advantage of an asymmetric tread pattern is the ability to design the tread patter for specific forces the tire will deal with as the tire engineers know how it will be placed on the vehicle. Another advantage over a directional tread pattern is the tire may still be rotated side to side on a staggered set up or crossed front to back on a non staggered set up.
