Designed for difficult and demanding winter conditions, The Interstate Winter VAN IWT ST is a special winter tyre for vans and light trucks which is also suitable for light off-road use. The large number of sipes and the innovative rubber blend of Interstate Winter VAN IWT ST guarantee good grip on a slippery surface. The tyre’s sturdy construction provides stability on the road, as well as durability. The tyre’s powerful grooves remove water and slush from between the tyre and the road. The tread pattern effectively cleans itself of snow. Interstate Winter VAN IWT ST can be studded. The new distribution of studs ensures low tyre noise and excellent grip on ice. The preshaped stud holes keep the studs firmly attached to the tyre. The tyre is meeting the requirements for the new 2013 Scandinavian stud law.
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.
