Matador brand with long tradition, wide portfolio and reliable performance
Good safety and handling performance
Fits perfectly for example to Nissan Qashqai, Dacia Duster and Toyota Hilux
Compact and solidly designed shoulder blocks
High amount of waved sipes which follow the block structure
New silica tread compound in combination with rolling resistance optimised pattern structure
High lateral stiffness enables good transmission of side forces
Waved sipes allow smooth roll in and roll out of the blocks
Low rolling resistance, optimised pressure distribution and even wear of the tyre
High level of safety due to outstanding handling performance
Superior driving comfort due to reduced noise generation from the tyre
Good safety and handling performance. Compact, sturdily designed shoulder blocks increase lateral rigidity and enable the good transmission of lateral forces. Thanks to the outstanding handling, a high degree of safety is achieved.
Better driving comfort. A large number of wave-shaped sipes, which follow the block structure, enable the blocks to roll in and out smoothly. Driving comfort is improved as a result of the reduction in tyre noise.
High mileage. The new silica compound with optimised tread pattern delivers low rolling resistance, optimised pressure distribution and low wear. This also increases 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.
