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
Comfort: Under the premise of fulfilling the tread rigid, diversity distribution of pattern blocks increase the flexibility in a large extent, and enhance the tire damping functions, provide a more comfortable driving feel.
Mute: Small pattern blocks of high-density distribution effectively offsets the noise generated when the air compressing emissions. By a variety of simulated irregular arrangement of pitch patterns, it reduces the noise caused by tire vibration.
Non-skid feature: The 4 Channel-Groove in the optimal design of layout and width gives non-slip performance maximization, and ensures superior drainage performance in wetland road to provide a safe escort in the raining drive. The formulations with silicon etc effectively improve the non-skid properties of tires to secure driving on wet roads.
Manipulation: Centre Rib increases the operating and braking performance significantly, enhances greatly ground grip and the operating stability; the increased ground-contact rate is designed to enhance the adhesion on wet and dry road. Enhanced tread block increases the strength of rotary power and braking capabilities with increasing manoeuvrability.
Bead adhesion stability: Special bead contour design makes more close contact with the wheel rim after inflating the tire, and shortens the turn-up of the toe to provide greater security.
