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 footprint provides constant, maximum contact with the road surface for a smooth ride and remarkable all-weather handling.
The computer-designed ply shape has the optimal stiffness for minimal tread wear and maximum tread life.
A newly developed multiple sub pitch concept (Dual Depth Pitch Theory) reduces pattern noise.
Innovative high performance SUV tyre sports a V-shape design for excellent handling in both dry and wet road conditions.
Compound and overall construction yield optimum traction on all road surfaces, outpacing the competition.
Rim protector provides better protection against outer shock or scratches.
