A special stud design ensures improved traction, ideal cornering and excellent braking , even on icy roads.
The tyre remains stable in winter weather and keeps the vehicle safely on track when braking and on ice.
The specially shaped sipes enable the tread to pick up large amounts of snow.
This results in good lateral adhesion and has a positive impact on braking performance on snow.
The computer-optimised, wedgeshaped distribution of tread grooves meets the requirements of “Finnish Legislation”, as it eliminates frequency peaks and ensures a pleasantly low noise level.
Tyres with high wet grip performance (A or B graded) have shorter braking distances on wet roads and are, therefore, safer in the rain. As with fuel efficiency, the D grade isn’t used and there are no plans to use G.
Tyres account for up to 20% of your vehicle’s fuel consumption so, if you want to get more miles per tank of fuel, you should choose tyres with a high fuel efficiency rating. You will also lower your CO2 emissions. It comes down to rolling resistance i.e. the energy lost when a tyre is moving. The lower the rolling resistance, the less energy is lost and the lower your fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The difference between an A-rated tyre and a G-rated tyre could be as much as 6 litres per 625 miles.
This is the external noise made by the tyre and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tyres.
