Homologated tyres are those that have been approved directly via a manufacturer. These tyres are ones that have met the standards and regulatory requirements of the manufacturer.
The energy lost when a tyre is in motion is known as 'rolling resistance'. This has a direct impact on fuel consumption.
A tyre's rolling resistance score ranges from A to G. Over the life of the tyre, fitting an A rated tyre could save you up to 6 litres of fuel when compared to a G rated tyre.
A tyre's wet grip capacity is expressed in Grades from A to G.
The difference in braking distances between each grade is roughly 3m - an average car length. This makes average stopping distance between an A and G rated tyre 18m. That's 4 car lengths.
The exterior noise grade of a tyre is expressed in decibels - accompanied by one, two or three sound waves, with one wave being the best noise level performance.
To achieve the best grade, a tyre’s noise level must be at least 3dB under the legal limit set by the EU.
Shorter braking distances in the wet or dry.
Very good handling particularly when cornering on damp roads.
High mileage and low fuel consumption.
An asymmetrical and functional profile:
Braking and handling via circumferential grooves that provide impeccable road holding.
Stability and acoustic comfort thanks to outer shoulder reinforcement that guarantees exceptional stability when cornering and reduces acoustic noise.
Safety in the wet via optimum siping toffers maximum grip in the wet.
The arrangement of the wide, circumferential and lateral grooves provides excellent water drainage.
