A newly-developed compound with polymers which have a higher molecular weight and an increased volume of silica has now been developed. The increased silica provides excellent wet grip while maintaining a good level of rolling resistance, which reduces your fuel costs. The long polymers are intertwined with one another, thus increasing the strength of the rubber and thereby giving excellent handling performance as well as great mileage.
Enhanced Full Logic Tread Pattern
Enhanced Full Logic Tread Pattern The C.drive’s ‘Full Logic’ asymmetrical tread pattern has now been enhanced even further. The positioning of the grooves provides superior performance on both wet and dry road surfaces. The minimized groove area in the outer zone and the shortened lug grooves on the inside shoulder are designed to maintain rigidity when cornering, whilst the four wide straight grooves and the spiral drain grooves on the centre ribs are effective in draining water. Diamond-shaped bevels (3) ease the stress on the central rib, which prevents uneven wear.
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.
