For big, high performance cars with traction on all four wheels, that are being used to a large extent
The 'Opti-Noise' technology makes it particularily noiseless
A special side panel construction ensures an optimum handling and precise steering reactions
It has an excellent endurance when it comes to wet driveways, it's profile pattern ensures an outstanding traction on dirty, slippery roads
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.

11.10.2005 from Julian Dempster I like directional tyres, I run them on my car, so I put them on my truck. Cheap from Mytyres. Very good tyre. Excellent dry grip in both cornering and stopping. Also very good in the wet. I expected to wear them quickly as I drive quite fast, but after 3000 miles, the fronts has lost 2mm, the rears, nothing. I would buy them again.
