For compact-class and middle-class vehicles. Performance, steering precision, long service life. Thanks to minimal wear you can be sure to go further – with regard to mileage as well as superb driving comfort. The Brillantis 2 provides the perfect combination of economy and long service life. Balanced driving characteristics and a precise steering response make this tire a good all-round solution.
The Brillantis 2 features:
High mileage performance
Increased aquaplaning safety
Short braking distances
Fits perfectly for example to Skoda Citigo, VW Golf VII and Renault Mégane
Flat contour, good ground pressure distribution
High mileage performance forprolonged driving fun
Pleasantly low rolling noise
High mileage. The flat contour of the Brillantis 2 evenly distributes the ground pressure. This increases mileage.
Greater safety during critical steering manoeuvres. The asymmetrical tread with a solid outer shoulder gives the tyre good transverse rigidity in the outer shoulder blocks. The result: greater safety for critical steering manoeuvres.
Greater protection against aquaplaning and shorter braking distances on wet roads. Continuous lateral grooves on the inside and narrow grooves in the blocks allow water to flow away freely. This increases aquaplaning prevention and shortens the braking distances on wet roads.
Low rolling noise. The reduced width of grooves in the shoulder area and a lower volume of transverse grooves make road noise pleasantly quiet.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

08.04.2021fromStuart Ward The car is one of 3 cars I drive so the annual mileage is low. However I bought this tyre you match the others already on the car. I have always found that these tyres are perfectly adequate for the cars wire wheels and my driving style. I would recommend these tyres for any user.
