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.
The Chrono 2 is the ideal choice for Vans and commercial vehicles that need good performance and safety even with high loads.
Thanks to the large contact area it reduces braking distances and improves traction in every circumstance.
The weight reduction provided by the use of innovative materials, the optimized mould profile and the new internal structure of the tyre improve the efficiency, the rolling resistance and the comfort of the tyre.
A versatile tyre both for short and long journeys. Chrono 2 provides a reassuring drive even for long journeys. Excellent performance on wet and dry roads. Strong sidewalls provide increased lateral protection against impacts.
A product that matches the performance characteristics of summer car tyres with the traditional characteristics of commercial vehicle tyres.
