All year tyre featuring excellent properties on dry and wet surfaces and on snow
The tyre properties in winter conditions are comparable credit to optimized tyre tread pattern with winter tyres
The key advantages of the MPS 125 tyre comprise economic efficiency, universal use, long life and high safety while eliminating the need to change tyres during the year
Tread pattern description:
All-season symmetric non-directional tread of an advanced design. This tread was specifically designed for all-seasonal operation of light commercial vehicles on regional roads and highways. The whole development of this tread was focused on high reliability, maximum safety and an excellent durability
Circumferential saw-tooth grooves an ideal channelling of water, mud and snow; high resistance against aquaplaning multiple contact edges provide an excellent traction on snow and ice good directional stability and low noise level. Narrow circumferential grooves in tread lugs they help to distribute the pressure in lugs more evenly they improve cooling of lugs which significantly improves driveability and increases durability of tread they enhance driving safety as well as stability in turns
Transversal voids accurately arranged transversal voids are related each other which provides sufficient resistance against aquaplaning on melted snow and in slops during the whole lifetime transversal voids in tread lugs are tangentially divided and shifted each other in order to minimize noise.
Lamellar tread structure original 3D lamellas improve both traction as well as braking performances on snowy and icy roads at the same time they maintain an excellent stability of driving during maximum loads on dry surfaces a lot of lamellas create many contact edges similarly to winter treads. Reinforced lugs reinforced rigidity of tread lugs enhances tread durability.
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.
