DURABLE AND HIGH-MILEAGE. HANDLES LIKE A CAR TYRE.
DURAVIS is durable. These new tyres are tough, designed to stand up to daily deliveries and heavy use, while the jointless cap layer construction provides durability at highway speeds.
Longer wear life. Tests show that DURAVIS provides longer wear life than other leading tyres. New C.S.C. tread-block technology and a specially optimised tread pattern reduce irregular wear and provide exceptionally high mileage.
Handling like a car. Specially designed with an advanced tread block design, DURAVIS handles like a car tyre. It gives modern vans a smooth, comfortable, quiet ride – whether manoeuvring on city streets or cruising on motorways.
Top performance in the wet. Drivers will notice the difference on wet and greasy surfaces, where DURAVIS provides better grip, safer cornering and less risk of aquaplaning.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
