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.
Excellent rain, snow and mud traction for winter conditions.
- Excellent traction in difficult conditions
The Dunlop SP LT 60 features a tread pattern optimized for winter roads. A bladed centre section allows for confident grip on wet and snowy surfaces. Deep transverse grooves and an open shoulder design quickly disperse water and prevent aquaplaning.
- High mileage potential
The tread compound and tyre profile are designed for even wear, prolonging tyre life and enhancing load-carrying abilities.
- Low noise
The SP LT60 tread pattern is designed to reduce noise generation to a level comparable to passenger car tyres.
