Loving everything about these tires so far. And anyone that thinks these look like the runflats, umm no. They are a much much bolder looking tire, and the performance is incomparable.
From Motor Trend-
"The Motivo has an aesthetic appeal, with copious amounts of siping that define the tread design. Fin-shaped, straight, diagonal, and 3-D multi-wave sipes create the Motivo's unique and aggressive-looking tread pattern designed in part to provide improved escape routes for water and light snow. In addition, the Motivo sports four wide circumferential grooves, which Nitto says further help water escape. The 3-D multi-wave sipes are one of Nitto's newest innovations, and while they look like regular sipes, inside there are little grooves that resemble stalagmites in a cave. These little grooves allow water to disperse more freely and also contribute largely to the Motivo's 60,000-mile limited treadwear warranty, as they help improve resistance to irregular wear by better absorbing uneven road surfaces."
