For compact-class and middle-class vehicles. Performance, steering precision, long service life. Thanks to minimal wear you can be sure to go further – with regard to mileage as well as superb driving comfort. The Brillantis 2 provides the perfect combination of economy and long service life. Balanced driving characteristics and a precise steering response make this tire a good all-round solution.
The Brillantis 2 features:
High mileage performance
Increased aquaplaning safety
Short braking distances
Fits perfectly for example to Skoda Citigo, VW Golf VII and Renault Mégane
Flat contour, good ground pressure distribution
High mileage performance forprolonged driving fun
Pleasantly low rolling noise
High mileage. The flat contour of the Brillantis 2 evenly distributes the ground pressure. This increases mileage.
Greater safety during critical steering manoeuvres. The asymmetrical tread with a solid outer shoulder gives the tyre good transverse rigidity in the outer shoulder blocks. The result: greater safety for critical steering manoeuvres.
Greater protection against aquaplaning and shorter braking distances on wet roads. Continuous lateral grooves on the inside and narrow grooves in the blocks allow water to flow away freely. This increases aquaplaning prevention and shortens the braking distances on wet roads.
Low rolling noise. The reduced width of grooves in the shoulder area and a lower volume of transverse grooves make road noise pleasantly quiet.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
