Federal Improves Gas Mileage With Xtramile XR01

The new XR01 is specifically designed for improved grip in a long-lasting tire by utilizing a unique blend of wear-resistant compound along with increased tread depth to offer prolonged tire life. The development of distinctive patterns minimizes perceived road noise and even comfortably copes with muddy or slippery surfaces while travelling.

Additional tread design features include:
* Four bold grooves which ensure stability and proper water evacuation capabilities
* Dual layers of polyester carcass ply and strengthened sidewalls provide a consistent footprint and excellent durability.
