Comfort and safety across the entire range
Developed for compact- and middle-class vehicles and SUVs.
Outstanding aquaplaning safety and ideal comfort.
Fits perfectly for example to Ford Fiesta, Renault Twingo and Alfa Romeo Mito.
High aquaplaning safety
The new RainExpert 3 has a tread structure based on the shark skin.
This special tread minimises water turbulence and channels water away from the tread more quickly.
This means the tyre provides a high level of protection against aquaplaning.
Short braking distances on wet and dry roads
The tyre tread grips the road surface perfectly, establishing strong contact.
This extra adhesion leads to short stopping distances on dry and wet roads.
Low rolling resistance on any road
With the RainExpert 3 the tread surface is used to optimum effect in contact with the road.
This leads to reduced loss of friction, resulting in lower rolling resistance on all road surfaces and reduced wear.
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.
