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.
Traction and grip in the most extreme conditions:
Deep tread pattern for good traction in heavy ground.
Angular shoulders and projecting blocks for maximum grip on banking.
Solid, rigid blocks spaced for easy unclogging.
Flexibility of the radial architecture making it possible to reduce the pressures to < 1 bar in difficult off-road areas.
Withstands any test: excellent resistance to perforations, attack and impacts.
Protective metal cap ply. Triple sidewall guards. High-strength double polyester casing ply.
Selected by the emergency services in extreme situations and by several armies in the world.
