The Roadian HTX RH5 is Nexen’s Highway All-Season light truck tire developed for light-duty vans, trucks and pickups for drivers who want a combination of pleasant on-road characteristics, long wear and all-season versatility, including all-season traction in light snow.
Roadian HTX RH5 tires feature an all-season tread compound molded into a symmetric design with wide shoulders and independent tread blocks. Circumferential grooves resist hydroplaning on wet roads while lateral grooves aid starting and stopping traction. Zig-Zag Sipes increase sipe density and enhance braking performance in wet and wintry conditions.
The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by two layers of nylon for strength and durability while a 2-ply polyester casing promotes ride comfort.
