    Slanted block corners and profile webs ("Tie Bars") reduce the formation of noise

  • [Translate to Englisch:] Beschreibung 3

    High degree of safety on wet roads

    Four circumferential drainage grooves improve the removal of water and hydrodynamically-shaped transverse grooves in the shoulder area provide for water transport to the outside

  • [Translate to Englisch:] Beschreibung 4

    Excellent braking performance on wet roads

    Curved sipes in the inner and outer shoulders in conjunction with grooves in the middle belt improve performance on wet roads.

    PLATIN Performance Indicator – PPI


    The new Platin Performance Indicator with WET and DRY stages offers yet more safety: If both indicator levels are fully visible this confirms optimal performance of the tyre on wet and dry roads.

    PLATIN Performance Indicator – PPI


    When the WET indicator disappears with 3 mm of tread depth remaining we recommend a tyre change due to the loss of optimal performance in the wet.

    PLATIN Performance Indicator – PPI


    When the DRY indicator disappears this indicates that the tyre has reached the minimum legal tread depth of 1.6 mm. A tyre change is now urgently necessary.

Can I fit this tyre on my car?

TYRE CONFIGURATOR

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).
