Feel the comfortable driving while caring for the environment
N Blue Eco is an eco-friendly performance tire with excellent wet handling and braking performance providing outstanding driving stability on wet roads. Optimized tread contact patch provides uniform distribution of contact pressure, resulting in a longer tread life. Well positioned grooves and extra-thin sipes reduce braking distances and secure high braking performance on wet roads. Continuous 3 center ribs with optimal block distribution help directional driving stability at high speed. Various shapes of sipe provide a comfort driving by absorbing the vibration from various road surfaces.
Green Technology N Blue Eco’s green technologies give more functional value to tire performance.
Excellent energy saving NBlue Eco combines green technologies including LRR full silica compound and construction design to reduce the tire's rolling resistance resulting in good energy efficiency.
Improved wet performance The application of highly dispersible silica compound maximizes wet grip performance.
Low noise for high comfort Computer optimized asymmetric tread pattern and random variable pitch blocks reduce noise generation, resulting in a quiet and comfortable ride.
Reduced Rolling Resistance Low rolling resistance silica compound and cavity profile provide lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions improving fuel efficiency to create energy savings.
Enhanced Wet Performance Optimized four wide grooves help realize outstanding water removal while the asymmetric pattern delivers improved hydroplaning and excellent grip performance on wet road surfaces.
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.

04.07.2020 from Stewart Dalzell Iif the sky greyed over I found the van no longer wanted to go round corners, very very scary in the wet this tyre even in a whole 70 horsepower slow poke like my Dispatch, just replaced with some Superia 4 seasons and they seem a 100% better tyre so far.
22.09.2015 from Steven 42 mpg quite control confident ride. Excellent tire at any price.
23.01.2015 from Neil Great budget tyre, deals with cold and snow very well. Great grip in wet conditions. Do require 20 or so miles to feel secure, a little light on steering when very new.
03.05.2014 from JazzMan These were bought as they were on special offer at an attractive low price at my usual tyre shop. Their performance in the dry or wet and on comfort is average. However they appear to wear very fast on the front of the Jazz & my garage reckons they will need replacing after 7500-8000 miles of use which is very disappointing, so I won't be buying these tyres again.
