The Grandtrek AT3 is an all-terrain 4x4/SUV tyre that achieves the optimum balance of on and off-road performance. A combination of unique silica compound and distinctive tread pattern ensures low road noise, high aquaplaning performance and universal traction in a variety of conditions. Outstanding all-terrain performance: High traction on and off the road and low noise. Ideal for heavy duty 4x4 vehicles.
The Specific Bead Seat System enhances control and conveys outstanding road feedback.
A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds.
Jointless Belt (JLB). A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds. Benefits: Superior high speed stability
High traction on and off the road
Ideal for heavy duty 4x4 vehicles
High traction on and off the road. The Grandtrek AT3 is an all terrain 4x4 tyre that comfortably handles on and off-road conditions. A straight centre rib helps to deliver good high speed handling and stability.
Longer Lasting. The tyre’s flatter tread profile ensures that pressure is evenly spread across the contact patch, which ensures even wear and longer tyre life.
Low noise. The tyre’s 2 in 1 shoulder block pattern reduces tyre noise levels and helps to maintain on and off-road traction.
Specific bead seat system. Strengthens the link between tyre and rim for a more precise driving experience. Like the grip between your hand and the steering wheel, the Specific Bead Seat System enhances control and conveys outstanding road feedback. Benefits Enhanced road feedback; greater stability and precision.
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.
