eNTYRE Marketing stuff:

Working from its winter experience, the asymmetric eNTyre features a number of traction and safety characteristics, including 3D sipes, polished grooves and five circumferential grooves for hydroplaning resistance, a “splash stopper” feature to reduce on-road splatter, and ultra low rolling resistance, and a new tread compound for all-season traction and high mileage.
The tire will be available in the first quarter of 2010 in 26 T-, H- and V-rated sizes covering 15- to 17-inch wheel diameters. eNTyre sizes in 15- and 16-inch carry a UTQG of 700AA, while the 17-inch sizes are rated at 560AA.
Those are some good wear ratings. Too bad I can't get them in my size.
Vortex generators are old tech. My new and improved vortex alternators are unstoppable.
