The Fulda SportControl delivers exceptional control on dry and wet roads, while also lowering fuel consumption. The SportControl is designed for controlled sporty driving. Benefit from confident handling and shorter braking in wet conditions. You’ll also enjoy lower fuel costs and CO2 emissions.
Controlled sporty driving
Superb control in the wet
Lower fuel consumption
Drive with peace of mind
Controlled sport driving. Get the most from your high performance car. The tire tread features progressive humps that distribute pressure evenly across the contact patch. The result is better handling at motorway speeds, with precise cornering control.
Superb control in the wet. Drive with confidence in rainy conditions. A full silica tread compound works with Aqua Flow grooves to deliver shorter braking distances on wet roads – up to 3 meters shorter than competitors’ tyres.*
Lower fuel consumption. Lightweight construction makes the tyre easier to roll, resulting in lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. In independent tests, the SportControl offered 14% lower rolling resistance than the competition.*That adds up to significant cost savings over the tyre’s lifetime.
Drive with peace of mind. The tread pattern is optimised so that wear occurs evenly across the tyre surface. This ensures a smoother, quieter ride and longer tyre life.
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.

17.09.2015 from Paul 53 reg Avensis. Great confidence in roadholding around corners in all conditions. Tyres are quiet, good on fuel and wear. Will be buying some more for the rears.
14.01.2015 from Jason Cant fault these tyres good grip in all conditions. I used in snow the other day and was surprised how much better they were compared to the budget tyres I owned before.I will be buying them again.
02.12.2014 from William Morris Initial wear was obvious but has now settled right down. very good tyre for the money.
09.11.2014 from Swain Purchased based on quality claims and sound levels. Very happy with overall driving feel and reduced noise levels. Too early to comment on tyre wear. No noticeable fuel consumption change. Very good value for money for a high spec tyre.
