Excellent grip and driving safety in winter. Strong in winter.
The new generation of winter light truck tyres in a wide range of dimensions to fit 14″ to 16″ wheel disks. Introducing a new generation of light truck tyres developed specially for winter use on small and medium-sized vans and light trucks. The MPS530 Sibir Snow M+S tyre is designed for winter traffic on motorways and regional roads. The pictogram on the sidewall is a guarantee of high reliability and outstanding grip in winter conditions – awarded for passing the ASTM F-1805 winter grip test.
The standout features of MPS530 Sibir Snow VAN M+S are an excellent grip on snow and high driving safety in winter conditions. There is a large offer of 19 dimension variants in the following speed categories: “N” – to 140 km/h, “Q” – to 160 km/h, “R” – to 170 km/h and “T” – to 190 km/h with width profiles from 165 mm to 235 mm for mounting on 14″ to 16″ wheel disks.
- Matador brand with long tradition, wide portfolio and reliable performance
- Good traction on snow
- Fits perfectly for example to Fiat Ducato, Iveco Daily and Ford Transit
Good traction on snow. Sinus-waved sipes and many strong and efficient interlocking grip edges improve braking and traction on snow.
Safe cornering. Compact shoulder blocks provide excellent cornering stability.
Excellent protection against aquaplaning. Wide water displacement grooves guide the rainwater quickly away from the contact area. In this way the tyre remains firmly on track even when aquaplaning, and also performs very well on slush.
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.
