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.
Designed predominantly for latest generation cars of medium to high power, P7 represents a contribution to performance in the wet, precise cornering, safety during braking and, above all, lifelong ability to maintain these characteristics.
The tyre achieves safety and driving performance resulting in effectiveness in the wet, assured braking, cornering, steeering response and comfort particularly on long motorway journeys.
Tread pattern P7's attractive asymmetric tread pattern blends style with an aggressive look.
Its design is created to maximise handling,traction, braking and lateral grip, even during hard cornering.
