Ideal for large and fast cars. For everything from wet and cold to snow white.
The new MS plus 77 sets new standards for winter tires from Uniroyal.Its technology has been consistently tailored to suit today's winter conditions on the roads. With excellent performance on wet and cold surfaces and a high level of safety in snow, it is the new force in winter. For compact-, middle- and upper-class vehicles and SUVs. Technology that sets new standards. Uniroyal offers more than 45 years of rain tyre know-how for optimum performance in the wet. Improved safety against aquaplaning. Fits perfectly for example to VW Golf, Peugeot 207 and VW Touareg.
- Improved safety against aquaplaning
- Improved handling on wet surfaces
- Very good traction on snow
Improved safety against aquaplaning. Wide open grooves in the centre and shoulders increase water flow away from the contact surface. At the same time a high void volume increases the patterns ability to absorb water. Both factors lead to more safety under wet road conditions.
Improved handling on wet surfaces. The special compound of rain tyres developed for the wet ensures more effective grip on the road. Large rigid shoulder blocks reduce deformation under load, especially on bends. Both lead to better handling on wet surfaces.
Very good traction on snow. A high number of sipes provide additional gripping edges. This leads to a better interlocking of the tread with the snow and thus better traction.
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.
