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.
Advanced Grooves, Enhanced Grip.
The Dunlop StreetResponse2 is designed for small city cars, offering exceptional performance in both wet and dry weather. Developed using the latest in tyre technology, the StreetResponse 2 boasts improved longevity when compared to it's predecessor.
The StreetResponse 2 features an innovative construction that provides a rounded footprint which cuts through surface water enhancing traction and performance on wet roads reduces the risk of aquaplaning.
Features and Benefits
- Reduced Aquaplaning
A rounded footprint helps to cut through water increasing traction between the tyre and road surface.
- Shorter braking distances
Multiple lateral grooves act as biting edges increasing friction and enhancing braking performance.
- Enhanced wet performance
Twin circumferential grooves aid in dispersing water, improving grip in the wet.
- Improved handling
Solid centre ribs provides optimal handing during cornering.
