A new SUV All-season Touring tire that delivers excellent stability and comfort with the state-of-the-art technology.
Four straight-line groove design for the maximum water dispersion The four vertical tread grooves are designed to efficiently expel water.
Slanted Long Groove Design on the center of the tire To resist hydroplaning by dispersing water through the circumferential grooves for better grip while increasing contact area on the road surface.
Sipe Patterns with assorted variation A total of 148 varied combinations of sipes which are optimally placed on the tread with the aim for achieving smaller blocks – with the result in minimum noise when the tire is contacting on road.
Lateral Patterns on Center Rib Provides straight-line performance and stability at high speed.
Stiff Interconnected Blocks Stiff interconnected among bigger shoulder blocks promotes quietness, comfort and driving stability by locking shoulder blocks together for balanced rigidity while also prevents the tire from uneven wear.
The Opposite Slanted Angle Design The opposite slanted angle design on the tread adds longevity and prevents uneven wear.
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.
