Ultra Violet Coating? Uhhhh. No. That's actually ridiculous and whoever wrote this made it up. The "UV" in the name doesn't stand for Ultra Violet. It stands for Utility Vehicle. The Firestone Winterforce UV tires are marketed to owners of light duty pick ups, vans, SUVs and AWD vehicles like subarus.

OMG. I agree, very ridiculous.

This is a wiki, so the page is editable, just click the "Edit Product" link at the top right. I have gone ahead and removed the "but is also treated with an ultraviolet-protective coating" part of the write-up.

This one slipped through quality control.
