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.
The Landsail LS388 is a performance touring tyre which offers low fuel consumption.
The LS388's advanced compounding is formulated to help you save fuel with every mile you travel, while the tread design works to keep you stable and comfortable as the miles pile up.
Features and Benefits:
- Fuel saving tread compound
The LS388's advanced tread compound reduces rolling resistance, which helps boost your vehicle's fuel efficiency and reduce exhaust emissions.
- Wet grip groove design
Four wide longitudinal grooves channel road water, while lateral grooves work to direct it out from under the tyre.
- High stability centering rib
The solid rib in the center of the tyre ensures straight-line driving stability.
- Low tread wear shoulder design
The shoulder is integrated with heat-resisting bars to keep the tread blocks stable and protect them from irregular wear. For the same reason, the design also improves high-speed cornering stability.
- Quiet-ride pitch alignment
Optimized tread pitch width and alignment quiet resonance and the road noise it creates.
