Constancy LY566 235/45R18 98WXL


SKU: 235/45R18 98WXL LY566 Category: Tags: ,


The Constancy Tire’s Max Performance tire is developed for the drivers of some of the world’s most prestigious high performance sports cars, coupes and sedans. Tires in sizes used for staggered fitments are optimized to meet the specific performance requirements of front or rear axle positions. The LY166 is designed to deliver steering precision, cornering stability and short stopping distances in dry and wet conditions.

The Constancy LY166 benefits from a tread compound with Constancy’s Technology that features an innovative type of racing-grade carbon black to ensure a speedy warm-up along with special grip resins that optimize traction on wet and dry roads. These new carbon blacks and resins blend the rubber’s flexibility (important for traction) with the tread’s rigidity (important for handling). This compound is molded into an asymmetric tread design featuring a continuous center rib (or multiple ribs in wider sizes, especially those tuned for rear axle only applications) flanked by a large number of small, interlocked tread blocks. Circumferential grooves help water flow through the footprint to resist hydroplaning while the transverse block edges divert water away from the tread blocks to improve wet traction.

The tire’s internal structure features a rolling resistance-optimized cap and base tread (“cap” on the outside with the “base” underneath), along with twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide (a mixture of heat-resistant synthetic aramid fiber and nylon threads) that enhance the ride quality while tuning the contact area’s vertical flexibility and lateral rigidity.
