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.
Features and Benefits
- Comfortable and quiet as a result of the variable sized tread blocks.
- Durable for longer life.
- Even tread wear due to the tough silica-based rubber.
- Ability to carry heavy loads because of the
- Combining even tread wear due to the tough silica-based rubber with an ability to carry heavy loads because of the reinforced casing.
- Outstanding traction on all type of weather condition and due to being manufactured from solid silica rubber compound
- The tread design features deep grooves with longitudinal channels for easy water flow and dense sipes to add extra grip to the vehicle.
