German engineered safety to master the Nordic winter.
No need to slide around when the roads are snowy and icy. This new Nordic Compound gives you excellent grip with outstanding performance in the snow and ice.
Here’s a tire providing more tracking stability than ever: the powerful pattern design with outstanding drainage capabilities even makes you master slush-planing and improves steering precision in extreme situations at the same time.
Winter can be very rude in some regions. That’s why we built a tire that keeps you in full control, even under harsh conditions – our 3D Trapez Sipes, with different thickness and effective snow edges, guarantees impressive traction and braking performance.
Secure grip in wet conditions is crucial for safe driving. Performance is graded into classes, A to G (although D and G are not currently used). The stopping distance between a class A tire and a class F tire can be as much as 18 metres.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with each subsequent class through to G increasing fuel consumption by between 0.42 and 0.56 mpg for a car which does 36 mpg.
This is the external noise made by the tire and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tires.
