Like the E270, whose low-profile counterpart it is, the E240 Classic's tread is designed for highway and durability. Under the profile, the base is additionally reinforced with a layer of aramid. Thus, the load index is also significantly increased compared to E270 Super Classic. Of course, the Shinko E240 is homologated according to ECE-R75.
