Medallion All Season ACP1
Enjoy the premium driving experience
The Medallion All Season tyres are well suited to meet the demands of all four seasons. Their modern v-profile layout coupled with their micro-sipe design makes them perfectly suited for winter. This unique tread feature also ensures that the tyres have optimum contact with the road in snowy and icy conditions. The two large linear grooves in the tread help to ensure that the water drainage on the tyre profile is good. This is essential for ensuring safe driving in all kinds of summer weather, in particular rain. Their high wet grip performance is attributed to the advanced silica tread compound, which also helps to significantly improve the tyre’s rolling resistance values. This also means that the individual demands of a wide range of vehicles are met; from small and compact cars right through to top of the line models.
- Great all-season tyres that suit a wide range of vehicles
- Good for the winter thanks to a v-shaped tread
- Perfectly suited for wet conditions thanks to two large linear groves in the tread
- The silica tread compound helps to optimise the tyre’s rolling resistance
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.
