The novel tire is comprised of a silica-filled rubber compound which includes a coupling agent such as mercaptopropyl trimethoxysilane. The coupling agent is a compound that forms a bond or connection between rubber and silica. The coupling agent is preferably allowed to interact with the silica prior to incorporating the polar compounds, such as metallic oxide accelerators, into the rubber compound.
