I am also quite skeptical on these claims. Keep in mind that tire patents, like any other patents, only last 20 years. Meaning that it is open season on all tread and tire designs from 1992 and earlier. And tire manufacturers were making these same claims well before 1992.

The one thing that I don't see tire manufacturers really striving for is making a less expensive tire.
