Center sub grooves with shallower depth enhance vertical/lateral block stiffness to avert block deformation and further reduce energy consumption. Shoulder groove bottom with big angle design retains shoulder block continuity, weakens block wriggling, and reduces energy consumption.
Two section lateral groove design on shoulder profile prevents uneven tread wear and provides adequate traction. Four circumferential groove design enhances drainage performance and safety for wet road driving.
Center rib design reinforces straight driving and handling performance. Circumferential rib design on tread shoulder, with thin sipes instead of run-through lateral grooves, prevents groove resonance and reduce noise generated by run-through lateral grooves.
Adopting excellent dispersible silica and unique agents reduce rolling resistance substantially as well as enhances wet grip using unique synthetical rubber with ''Chain-End Modification'' strengthens fuel saving and traction. The ha-oil-free formula for all sizes conforms with EU environmental protection laws.
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.
