High mileage and fuel efficiency for economical driving
The new Dunlop Econodrive light truck tire reduces your cost of ownership – without reducing performance
The Dunlop EconoDrive has been engineered to reduce the cost of ownership, through increased mileage and reduced rolling resistance. The enhanced tread design ensures improved water evacuation improving wet performance and wet braking.
Designed for lower cost of ownership
Excellent durability and handling
Designed for lower cost of ownership. For cost-conscious drivers and fleet managers, the Dunlop Econodrive has been developed to deliver significant improvements in mileage and fuel efficiency.
Durability and handling. The Dunlop Econodrive is built on a stiff and durable carcass designed for long life with enhanced cornering and braking. Reinforced sidewalls protect from kerb damage while improving rolling resistance.
Long-wearing compound. Our specialised tread compound features carbon particles for improved tread stiffness and on-road friction. Silica particles help to lower rolling resistance, resulting in better fuel economy.
Wet weather performance. The four-rib tread pattern delivers excellent performance on wet roads. Deep central grooves and an open shoulder design combine for rapid water dispersal, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
Silica in the compound helps lower rolling resistance while carbon black helps to give longer mileage
Stiffer sidewall helps to maintain even tread footprint, generating less heat build up
Open shoulder and transverse grooves to enhance water evacuation and performance in the wet
Even wear of the tyre leading to longer mileage
Enhanced rolling resistance
Thicker sidewall helps to resist curb damage
Improved wet performance and braking
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
