Riken Raptor HR Reviews

Riken Raptor HR tires combine Michelin tire technology and a performance tread design into an affordable high performance tire that is easy on the wallet. This all-season radial has a lot of features built into the tread that may surprise some.

The tire itself sports an aggressive directional tread pattern with an advanced tread compound that provides solid handling and control on all types of roads. Riken’s high modulus sidewall composition adds a much quicker response when cornering at higher speeds.

Four circumferential grooves and a continuous center rib not only give you added traction on rain soaked roads, but also a better contact patch, which reduces the risk of hydroplaning.

Inside the tire are twin steel belts and a computer-phased design that provide added strength and durability, while also giving a smoother and more comfortable ride. A built in rim protector prevents damaging expensive custom wheels. Overall, the Riken Raptor HR is a solid performer that is an even better value.
