PLATIN - a quality reference since 1987

Since 1987 PLATIN has stood for fascinating wheel designs and innovative tyre technology with a outstanding price-performance ratio.

The wide range of unique PLATIN WHEELS with alloy wheelsfrom 14 to 21 inches in more than 30 different designs leave just about nothing more to be desired.
PLATIN TYRES round out the range with summer and winter tyres for cars, vans and light trucks in more than a hundred current sizes.

Our Quality Management system has been certified by TÜV Rheinland.

Quality certification according to ISO 9001:2015

Certificate 9105066498

With the relocation of the mounted wheel assembly to the new wheel warehouse with around 32,000 square metres of storage space, an audit by TÜV Rheinland has now successfully proven that sales, assembly and shipping of mounted wheels at the location "Am Storrenacker 30" in Karlsruhe meet the requirements according to ISO 9001:2015.

EU energy label for tyres

The EU tyre label helps consumers to decide in favour of a higher fuel efficiency class for their tyres. This can contribute to large reductions in running costs and emissions. Enhanced wet grip means greater road safety, and details of external rolling noise contributes to a reduction in traffic noise levels. 

The actual fuel savings and road safety depend heavily on the behaviour of drivers, and in particular on the following:

  • Eco-driving can significantly reduce fuel consumption
  • Tyre pressure needs to be regularly checked to optimise fuel efficiency and wet grip.
  • Stopping distances must always be respected.

Fuel efficiency class

Less rolling noise saves fuel and cuts CO2. This property is assigned to classes A to E. 

Wet grip class

Wet grip is assigned to classes A to E. Wet grip is crucial to safe driving. For instance, the difference between class A and class E braking distances is 18 m. 

External rolling noise class

The label presents the volume in dB and the class A (quieter), B, or C (louder). The noise emitted by tyres affects the total noise levels emitted by the vehicle.

Snow grip

The snowflake symbol confirms that the snow tested tyre keeps within the 3PMSF limits (type approval).
