Tyre for traction axles suitable for quarry or construction site applications, featuring excellent resistance, duration and retreading.
Can also be used on directional axles for 4-wheel drive vehicles. Excellent performance, even for 'site-support' type uses on asphalted and mixed roads.
G On/Off: products designed for mixed use vehicles on the road, on construction sites and under slightly-aggressive tread-wear conditions.
TREAD DESIGN • Robust shoulder blocks, massive central rib and optimised sectional transversal grooves ensure maximum resistance against tears and lacerations. • Wide and deep transversal grooves provide superior performance in terms of roadholding and traction on slippery surfaces. • Undertread increased to reduce the possibility of accidental casing damage.
TREAD COMPOUND Tread compound specially formulated to provide: • Improved resistance to tears and lacerations. • Increased mileage in both on and off road solutions. • Lower operating temperatures benefit tyre integrity and retreadability.
Greater exibility and ease of fitting Thermal stability of bead and longer lasting bead wire Retreadability.
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.
