Nexen Roadian CT8 - High Durability and long mileage for vans
Maximized block rigidity by applying the rib type for shoulder block, given the heavy load of commercial LT vehicles. Prevented stress between blocks by applying square-shaped dimple where a sipe is turned, resulting in better durability. Maintains optimal rigidity balance in the in-out section by applying half depth to the transverse groove in the center block. Improved hydro performance through drainage faster than the of existing zigzag type by applying the straight main groove.
Enhanced durability & longer tread life
Improved fuel efficiency with decreased rolling resistance
Excellent handling and braking performance on wet roads
Durability & Long Mileage
Compound with excellent wear-resistance Optimized dispersion of compound improves wear-resistance and reduces energy loss, which results in longer tread life.
Excellent even grip force leads to longer tread life
Sidewall protection from curb damage 4 side-wall shields provide outstanding resistance to damage such as external impacts and curb stones.
Improved fuel efficiency with decreased rolling resistance, thanks to the use of optimal compound.
Handing & Braking
Improved handling performance and excellent wet grip resulting in a 4% increase in braking performance over earlier models.
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.
