New Snowprox S943 is suitable for a wide range of small and, medium sized family cars Offering a safe all-round winter driving experience with controlled handling on snow and a short braking distance on wet roads.
Snowprox S943 is more environment-friendly and economical, compared to the Snowprox S942 which it supercedes. By reducing rolling resistance and weight, CO2 emissions are reduced.
Snow Enhanced Polymer Compound
Lower rolling resistance and longer wear life through increased filler dispersion. Hardness suppressed resulting in better snow performance. Added compounds of natural origin enhance interaction between polymer and silica leading to better grip without compromising snow performance.
Wide Centre Gooves
Unidirectional tread with wide centre grooves gives superior grip and snow traction.
Large Shoulder Blocks
High sipe density increases edge effect for grip on snowy and slippery 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.

12.06.2021 from D J groom Satisfying
13.06.2019 from Marcin Far superior tyre quality to all I have had before and all for a price of a budget tyres. Very quiet and comfortable ride. Fairly hard wearing on another side. Can withstand spring temperatures without any slippage or other issues. Best tyres ever. I will definitely buy them again when required.
24.06.2015 from Geoff Didn't get to drive in the snow, however wet and dry grip seemed very good, for a snow tyre. Noise was higher than the summers, but not too bad, and to be expected.
19.05.2015 from David yeaman First class and best winter tyres I have ever bought. First class in all conditions throughout all seasons. Definitely buy the same again. Sorry vredisteins. You have been upstaged
