The Star Performer SPTS AS is the successor to the AS and has been improved compared to the predecessor model. So the tyres should satisfy the different weather conditions. This succeeds as the customer reviews on Tyretest.com show. Several thousand testers give it high marks in all areas. The tyres not only have the M+S designation, but also the snowflake symbol, which officially classifies them as winter suitable.
The Star Performer SPTS AS is available in sizes from 13 to 19 inches. Thus drivers of all vehicle classes benefit of its excellent price-performance ratio. As a private brand of Delticom AG mytyres.co.uk can offer you products of this brand particularly favorable. Additionally you pay no shipping costs if you order more than one tyre.
These are M+S and snowflake marked winter tyres, ideal for use in winter, having just the right amount of grip for both wet and dry surfaces. They also have a great price/quality ratio. Short braking distance, low noise level, heightened comfort, perfect traction and grip especially at high speeds. These tyres offer unequalled safety on wintry roads and in precarious weather.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

07.09.2020fromShem Cheap and good tyres use on my minivan,not to much wear after heavy use in the past six months,very good on wet and dry, I don't have chance check on snow or really frozen days but for typical UK condition I can complain
26.01.2020fromHoward McKenzie Tyres were bought as a low cost option asi plan to change the vehicle this year. Haven’t noticed any difference to previous Toyo Snowtrax that we’re fitted. Mileage has dropped a bit according to the computer but haven’t verified at the pump yet. Not used on snow but fine on mud and ice. No noisier than previous tyres

02.08.2019fromcolin b A rear wheel drive, 15 year old car should not be good to drive on snow or ice. With the Star Performers fitted, this has become the best car i've ever driven in winter, getting up a steep hill near home that other cars couldn't manage. Summer performance is very good too and tyre wear seems excellent despite summer use
