  • The three main circumferential grooves on central tread can improve drainage efficiency and wet handling performance.
  • Unique groove wall angle design prevents excessive stress massing to reduce irregular treadwear effectively.
  • Continuous tread shoulder design enhances tyre stiffness when cornering.
  • The optimized tread width has 13% wider contact patch than a regular tyre and increases stability while driving at high speed.
  • Large blocks of tread shoulder upgrade stiffness and handling performance.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

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.

For a summer tyre, these are great in the wet, adimitadly there's still plenty of tread left so this could be part of this. A lot of people said these were no good in the wet, that's rubbish. Damp or wet roads these still have better levels of grip than a normal road tyre, they just don't handle standing water very well (As would be expected this this type of tyre). As long as you drive to the conditions you won't have any issues with rain. I've even had 3 days in the snow with these...lets just make it clear these are NOT snow tyres but they done suprisingly well. The only thing I noticed is that you have to warm them up, when cold they seem a bit loose. After a few minutes driving they get to decent levels of grip but you need to drive a bit harder than normal road conditions to get them to full potential. It would have been nice if they were still available in this size with the softer compound. They are on the latest MSA list 1B though so don't get caught out - some of the smaller events like the autosolos won't allow you to run with them. The side walls are stiff enough to give some sharp turn in but you trade that off with road noise and a stiffer ride but again that is to be expected. All in all these are great tyres for the price.
