The tyre's pattern provides you with excellent handling and very good braking properties on dry road surfaces. It also gives you shorter braking distances on wet road surfaces, helping to keep you safe.
Reduced noise emissions guarantee a higher level of driving comfort. The tyre's contour distributes the pressure evenly, leading to high mileage.
The tyre's pattern creates outstanding traction in light off-road use.
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.
