The optimum distribution of gripping edges increase braking performance in snow and ice, as well as on wet roads.
The tyre's contour reduces wear and increases the mileage performance, giving it a long service life and making it extremely efficient.
Made of a special compound, the tyre demonstrates outstanding braking performance on ice and snow.
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.
