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.
All season tyre for small and medium sized SUVs
Enhanced stability at high speeds
The Grandtrek ST1 benefits from a directional groove pattern that ensures good stability at motorway speeds.
Excellent snow and wet performance
All season tread design with large grooves helps enhance water and slush evacuation
This tyre's rigid double centre rib is designed to decrease noise levels in the cabin for a more comfortable, enjoyable drive.
Silica-Plus Compound: A motorsport derived tread compound that delivers high levels of grip, particularly on wet roads and in low temperatures.
Superb braking and acceleration performance; high grip in wet and cold-weather conditions; low wear and tear.
Specific Bead Seat System: Strengthens the link between tyre and rim for a more precise driving experience. Like the grip between your hand and the steering wheel, the Specific Bead Seat System enhances control and conveys outstanding road feedback.
Enhanced road feedback; greater stability and precision.
