A studdable winter tire designed for light trucks, the WST2 allows you to tackle the toughest on- and off-road conditions with snow, ice or mud terrains while maintaining maximum traction.
Green technology: Extensive use of enviro-friendly materials that meet the European REACH requirements. Specially formulated LT compound and polymer blends keeps the rubber flexible for maximum performance in extreme temperatures improving safety and handling in Northern winter conditions (designated with the Severe Service Emblem) Specially blended Silica-Reinforced Formula for excellent grip performance in low temperatures.
Zigzag sipe arrangement: Aggressive zigzag sipes engineered for excellent directional grip on snow and ice
Angled grooves: Effectively helps to evacuate slush and water to maximize grip and control
Variable pitch sequence: Optimized to ensure a quiet and smooth ride
Stud sequence: Stud positioning optimized for maximum traction in extreme ice and snow.
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.
