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.
Drive longer, brake shorter.
Introduced in addition to the current Cintaurato P7, the Blue version is aimed to achieve the EU labels' top grades both in wet braking and rolling resistance.
The high performance tyre designed for medium and large sedans, offering an unconventional "trade-on" between wet performance and rolling resistance, whilst maintaining high levels of mileage.
- Innovative tread compound provide excellent handling, grip and braking in the wet and safer driving.
- Uniform distribution of the footprint contact pressure for high mileage and long journey pleasure.
- Carcass rigidity and lower vertical deflection and lower energy dispersion reduce rolling resistance.
- Four wide longitudinal grooves provide excellent water expulsion and outstanding safety and control in potential aquaplaning situations.
