The redesigned WinGuard WinSpike WH62 (pictured) for passenger vehicles and the WinGuard WinSpike WS62 for CUV/SUV vehicles deliver enhanced snow/ice performance thanks to an optimal arrangement of stud lines. The WH62 and WS62 feature 20 stud lines instead of their predecessors' 12. Nexen says the added stud lines maximize grip and minimize stud noise. Both models also have a new square-type contact patch and compound for improved braking and handling. NEXEN TIRE AMERICA INC.
