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.
Responsive sports handling with maximum comfort. For high performance vehicles.
Enhanced acceleration and braking
Get maximum enjoyment from your high performance car with the SP Sport 9000. The Silica Plus racing compound delivers noticeable improvements in acceleration grip and braking ability. Pressure is evenly dispersed across the tyre to help your car stick to the road.
Superb handling on wet
Experience confident control in wet weather. Sharp directional grooves rapidly disperse water in heavy rain conditions.
More stability at motorway speeds
The SP Sport 9000 keeps its shape at motorway speeds, giving you a smooth and stable ride. A tight link is maintained between tyre and rim, for precise control and steering response.
Comfort and durability
The tread is designed to reduce interior and exterior noise, resulting in a quieter experience for you and those around you. A long wearing compound gives you more miles between tyre changes.
