It is a tyre with an asymmetric tri-area tread design and with an improved dry and wet handling, improved road feedback and with an increased stability and steering precision, counteracts heel and toe wear.It has high aquaplaning resistance and a superior cornering stability. A high performance tyre with asymmetric tread design for luxury and mid range passenger vehicles delivering subtle and precise road feedback for improved control and comfort. This acceleration of road feedback means that the driver can respond accordingly and experience a more exhilarating drive.
Advanced Tread Compound, due to the stronger and more homogeneous cross linking of silica and polymer. Heat resistant coupling agent that provides a better silica distribution. New tread compound provides not only more wet grip and mileage, but also fits the micro texture of the road surface more accurately for better road feedback!
High aquaplaning resistance
More mileage from the tyre, more economical
Exceptional grip and control due to larger surface contacting the road
Very responsive steering on all surfaces
Shorter braking distance
Rim protection that protects expensive alloys from kerbing
Longer tread life
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.
