Some technical details about this tire:
Turanza Serenity Plus tires contain silica reinforced Long Link Carbon Black tread compound featuring Resonance Noise Attenuated silencer grooves to provide a smooth and quiet ride. Grooves around the perimeter and sides of the tire help push water out to resist hydroplaning and sliding around wet turns. Inside, high-tensile steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon stabilize the tread to give a firm and responsive ride. Rubber sidewall reinforcements give better ride quality and cornering stability as well.
