Winter likes to throw all types of weather at us: snow, ice and – increasingly – rain. For better handling in the wet, as well as a safer drive in your van or MPU, you can rely on Snow Max 2.
Its tread pattern features a V-shaped design as well as wide lateral grooves on both shoulders. These combined absorb and disperse water quickly, reducing you risk of aquaplaning.
Heavy loads need special care. That’s why Snow Max 2 is designed to deal with the extra demands of commercial driving, especially in wintery conditions.
Its tread features a V-shaped directional pattern which increases the longitudinal build-up of forces within the tyre, giving you more control and better handling. A large number of ideally-positioned grip edges provide excellent traction and great braking performance on snow and ice - even when driving uphill. Increased lateral pattern stiffness also improves braking on dry roads.
With the new Snow Max 2 we optimised the material mix of the compound leading to improved tyre resistance against structural wear and resulting in an extension of the tread life time. The more durable the tyre, the lower the total cost of ownership.
The best winter tyres for mobile homes on Mercedes Sprinter and Volkswagen LT chassis were tested in 2005 in proMobil, one of Germany’s top magazines for campers and mobile homes. The test rated the performance of seven winter tyres. The test winner, with excellent ratings all-round and top marks for wet performance, was the Uniroyal Snow Max 2.
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.
