Dębica Passio 2 tire combines features of Standard and Comfort tires: it has proved its value on the Polish roads, offering fuel-efficient and comfortable driving. The Optimized contour of Passio 2 contributes to even distribution of stress alongside the whole tire section, and consequently to even thread wear.
Stiffened elements of the centerline rib along with the stiff side blocks secure stable vehicle handling in all conditions. Meanwhile wide circumferential and lateral grooves evacuate water effectively from underneath the tire, thus minimizing the risk of aquaplaning.
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.

15.05.2010fromAdam L. This is not a sport tyre, it's an exellent tyre for older family cars like my Corolla. Quiet, reliable, durable and really safe in dry or wet conditions. Actually, is as good as Firestone Multihawk(or better). Probably the best model from this manufacturer so far. If you are more agressive driver, buy something like Nokian i3, Uniroyal Rainexpert or other tyre from other well known supplier. Adam
