When you drive a tight corner, you notice the time it takes your tyres to respond. True to form, Mickey Thompson, the leader in specialty 4x4 tyre technology, has designed a tyre that responds faster. PowerPly is a carcass construction that lessens the twist in the tyre. Less twist means a faster response to your steering.
IMPROVES CORNERING AND STEERING RESPONSE
With normal radial construction, as you corner, it's the centrifugal force that returns the tyre to centre. With the new PowerPly technology, the tyre snaps back quicker and has greater stability and control. The technical term is the tyre has a "faster transient response". Put simply, the reaction time from steering input to tyre response is much faster. This benefit is even more significant at lower tyre pressures, particularly when driving in gravelly or loose surface conditions.
GETS POWER TO THE GROUND FASTER
With Mickey Thompson's new PowerPly technology, the first two plies run in the same direction. It's the third ply, the PowerPly, that makes the difference. The PowerPly is a directional ply running slightly across the two radial plies linking them together and strengthening the tyre. In cornering, the plies twist far less which means less tread squirm giving you greater traction and faster steering response. Put simply, the tyre handles better and is safer.
TRADITIONAL RADIAL CONSTRUCTION
Tyres with a traditional radial construction can produce higher levels of torque twist when the tyre twists and flexes while you brake, corner and accelerate. Energy is lost through the back or side of the tyre.
MICKEY THOMPSON TIRES WITH POWERPLY
With PowerPly, the plies twist and flex far less during braking, cornering and acceleration, getting more power to the ground faster. This gives you greater traction and a faster steering response.
