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.
A tyre designed for drivers who like to express their own style which delivers outstanding performance in sports driving.
Features and Benefits:
- Alignment Indicator
Drivers can check the status of the vehicle alignment themselves through in or out wear check.
- Aqua Jet
Aqua jet is the catalyst to channel water effectively out of the center to the main groove wall.
- Cooling System
Speeds up water drainage and improves heat radiation at high speed.
- Stealth Technology
Unique wing tip design reduces noise using 'Stealth technology'. Slanted edges support the blocks during handling where sounds or trembling hits. This slanted surface reduces impact.
- Advanced Noise
Increased pitch numbers reduced noise.
- Compound Technology
Application of new styrene polymer featuring a functional group improves the chemical combination.
- High Grip Silica Compound
Improved dry and wet traction and lower rolling resistance.
- Wide Steel Belt Layer
Better dry or wet handling.
- High Density Polyester Carcass
Enhanced sidewall stiffness and durability.
- High Stiffness Bead Filler
Better steering and handling response.
