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 tyre with improved grip and shorter braking distances on wet roads A-rated* wet grip
- Shorter braking distances for driving confidence
- Improved wet braking and lower rolling resistance
- Lower fuel consumption
Key Features and Benefits:
A-rated wet grip
Rated A1 for wet grip performance, the highest rating awarded under EU regulations.
Shorter braking distances for driving confidence
ActiveBraking Technology increases contact between the tyre and the road surface for shorter braking distances.
Improved wet braking and lower rolling resistance
WearControl Technology ensures an optimal balance between wet grip and low rolling resistance for the life of the tyre.
Lower fuel consumption
We use FuelSaving Technology to create a new base compound that reduces the tyre's energy dissipation. Rolling resistance is reduced meaning improved fuel efficiency and lower driving costs for you.
