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.
Changes to EU Tyre Labelling
Tyre labelling changes will be taking place from the 1st May 2021 in Europe, including in Northern Ireland. To find out more about these changes, click here.
Asymmetric Tread Design Asymmetric tread design provides improved aquaplaning resistance. The continuous centre rib increases stability and precision. The asymmetric groove arrangement enhances grip on wet and dry surfaces.
Multi Radius Tread (MRT) MRT Designs employ ten different radii and are therefore more precise. Therefore we can guarantee highly effective pressure deployment on the road contact patch.
Variable Land to Sea Ratio Asymmetric tread design with a variable land to sea ratio provides improved aquaplaning resistance. The massive outer shoulder block delivers rapid and turbulence free water drain which results in outstanding cornering stability.
Jointless Belt (JLB) Jointless nylon bandage with 0° layer. This is a Hybrid Overlay Technology that guarantees very reduced circumferential deformation at high speed.
Dual Silica Compound This dual silica compound guarantees low wear and tear. It will drastically improve your driving pleasure due to his improved acceleration performance.
