Feel the comfortable driving while caring for the environment
N Blue Eco is an eco-friendly performance tire with excellent wet handling and braking performance providing outstanding driving stability on wet roads. Optimized tread contact patch provides uniform distribution of contact pressure, resulting in a longer tread life. Well positioned grooves and extra-thin sipes reduce braking distances and secure high braking performance on wet roads. Continuous 3 center ribs with optimal block distribution help directional driving stability at high speed. Various shapes of sipe provide a comfort driving by absorbing the vibration from various road surfaces.
Green Technology N Blue Eco’s green technologies give more functional value to tire performance.
Excellent energy saving NBlue Eco combines green technologies including LRR full silica compound and construction design to reduce the tire's rolling resistance resulting in good energy efficiency.
Improved wet performance The application of highly dispersible silica compound maximizes wet grip performance.
Low noise for high comfort Computer optimized asymmetric tread pattern and random variable pitch blocks reduce noise generation, resulting in a quiet and comfortable ride.
Reduced Rolling Resistance Low rolling resistance silica compound and cavity profile provide lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions improving fuel efficiency to create energy savings.
Enhanced Wet Performance Optimized four wide grooves help realize outstanding water removal while the asymmetric pattern delivers improved hydroplaning and excellent grip performance on wet road surfaces.
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.

22.09.2015fromSteven 42 mpg quite control confident ride. Excellent tire at any price.
23.01.2015fromNeil Great budget tyre, deals with cold and snow very well. Great grip in wet conditions. Do require 20 or so miles to feel secure, a little light on steering when very new.
03.05.2014fromJazzMan These were bought as they were on special offer at an attractive low price at my usual tyre shop. Their performance in the dry or wet and on comfort is average. However they appear to wear very fast on the front of the Jazz & my garage reckons they will need replacing after 7500-8000 miles of use which is very disappointing, so I won't be buying these tyres again.
