The two central grooves of the NS-2, along with the V-shaped tread of the tyre, improve the drainage of water on the tyre surface and hence reduce the risk aquaplaning.

When dry, the V-shaped tread ribs ensure a uniform pressure distribution so that the entire contact surface of the tyre can be used for power transmission.

Computer simulated V-shaped drainage sub-grooves increase resistance to hydroplaning at high speed running through deep water.

Two-in-one pitches and variable width tread profile help to reduce pattern noise and provide a quieter comfort.

Shoulder edge sipes ensure even and prolonged tread wear.

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.

The cars not exactly fast or powerful but never had a problem with the tyres considering there slightly stretched
14.03.2020 from Paul laszlo
My drive with these tyres is quite smooth but just a little noisy but the grip is excellent in both dry and wet weather especially cornering I am ver impressed.
01.12.2019 from TyreMan
These are good in the dry but they struggle for grip even if it's just slightly damp. The tyre model is a bit old now so they can be a bit noisy but for the money they are acceptable. I could launch from Type R from a standstill in the dry without them slipping, I don't have an LSD either so they seem to perform well enough for a lower powered hot hatch (200hp)
09.11.2019 from William Gilbey
To be honest I only drove on the tyres for roughly 2 month as I got rid of the car, but my new car is nearly due for a new set so I’ll definitely and always will buy these tyres, had 2 sets of them now and they’ve all been spot on especially for the price of them
