Safe driving in wet conditions with excellent protection against aquaplaning: An optimised tread pattern and the proven Uniroyal sharkskin technology offer enhanced water drainage against aquaplaning. The enhanced water-flow from the pattern center to the outside shoulder grooves guarantee you a safe driving pleasure.
Solving the target conflict between dry and winter performance aspects we developed a well balanced pattern which offers stability as well as winter performance features.
The special geometry of blocks and a multifunctional sipe concept deliver enhanced snow compression and excellent braking performance on both snowy and dry roads.
A stable middle rib and wide shoulder blocks improve handling performance and stabilisation during side forces.
Wear and cost of ownership: Buying one set all season tyres instead of buying summer and winter tyres means lower acquisition and storage costs. But you should also consider that all season tyres are always a compromise all year round. If you are an occasional driver driving mainly in cities where streets are regularly cleared of snow, and also living in a region with mild temperatures and winters the choice of all season tyres could be the right.
Tyres with high wet grip performance (A or B graded) have shorter braking distances on wet roads and are, therefore, safer in the rain. As with fuel efficiency, the D grade isn’t used and there are no plans to use G.
Tyres account for up to 20% of your vehicle’s fuel consumption so, if you want to get more miles per tank of fuel, you should choose tyres with a high fuel efficiency rating. You will also lower your CO2 emissions. It comes down to rolling resistance i.e. the energy lost when a tyre is moving. The lower the rolling resistance, the less energy is lost and the lower your fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The difference between an A-rated tyre and a G-rated tyre could be as much as 6 litres per 625 miles.
This is the external noise made by the tyre and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tyres.
