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
- Hybrid material and innovative tread pattern design providing more stable footprint during all the product life allowing more safety on both dry and wet conditions.
- Tension control and new mould profile minimizing impact shocks and reduce impact effects allowing more a comfortable driving experience.
- Optimised tread design with specific pitch sequence reducing noise emissions and quietness inside the vehicle.
- Made from eco-compatible material and innovative compounds that minimise environmental impact, aerodynamic sidewalls and lower weight leading to a reduction of rolling resistance - lower fuel consumption and CO 2 emissions
- The tyre complies with the 2012 EU Regulation on the reduction of noise, resulting in improved driving comfort.
