Designed for medium range and luxury vehicles, the Speed-Life sets new benchmarks for maximum road adherence when cornering. In tight or wide bends, on wet or dry roads - whatever the situation, the Semperit Speed-Life demonstrates top handling. Sporty performance, safety and comfort - three characteristics in one tire. Whatever the weather! The Semperit quality, provides maximum safety, even under tough conditions. Top Performance on straight and winding roads. Fits perfectly for example to VW Scirocco, Peugeot 307 CC and Audi Q3.
Varying block lengths in tread centre and shoulder
Innovative tread pattern design with high lateral stability
Latest generation full-silica compound
Wide circumferential grooves
Top Performance on straight and winding roads. Precise transmission of the steering forces on the road through a wide and solid profile centre. Effect: safer driving at high speeds.
Comfortable and quiet running. Comfortable driving and constant quiet running in all driving situations as a result of blocks of varying lengths in the tread centre and shoulder. Effect: Optimized contact between tread-blocks and road. Frequency peaks are distributed equally, thereby creating a constantly low noise level.
Grips on wet roads. Safe, sporty and economical - even on wet surfaces – thanks to latest generation of full silica compound. Effect: improved grip in the wet and reduced rolling resistance.
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.
