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
Outstanding handling performance thanks to 3D wave and straight groove and variable side angles.
Dry and wet braking performance improved by appropriately combining the longitudinal stiffness of pattern block.
Excellent traction and fuel saving due to highly dispersible silica (HDS) compounding and a new mixing process.
Jointless bead wire and high hardness bead filler: improves high speed stability and provides ride comfort and maximizes steering response, high speed stability and durability.
Wide, high-tensile steel belts and jointless two-cap ply: enhances tread strength for steering response and wear.
Improves uniformity for smooth ride and durability.
