Barum Bravuris 3HM
More miles and more economy - driving without limits
For sporty driving in all vehicles classes. Exceptionally good in all driving conditions.
- Barum offers affordable long lasting performance
- Precise handling and good directional stability on winding roads
- Fits perfectly for example to Skoda Octavia, BMW Series 3 Convertible and VW Golf Convertible
The Bravuris 3HM delivers what the affix 'HM' promises: High Mileage!
Thanks to minimal wear you can be sure to go further - with regard to mileage as well as superb driving comfort.
The Bravuris 3HM is a well-balanced tire that perfectly combines greater mileage with confident handling in all driving situations, offering extraordinary value for money.
- Higher mileage due to reduced wear rate, even wear shape and reduced friction energy
- Precise handling and safe driving on winding roads
- Good directional stability
- Short wet braking distances
Precise handling and good directional stability on winding roads.
The high lateral stiffness due to closed shoulders with macroblocks lead to a superb transmission of lateral forces at minor steering angles. The effect of excellent handling on winding roads is complemented by intermediate ribs which guarantee good directional stability.
Short wet braking distances.
The large number of gripping edges provided by sipes and the high number of pitches improve the contact with the road surface. The state of the art tread compound also guarantees optimum adhesion and short stopping distances on wet road surfaces.
The wide, flat contour and a high number of pitches and sipes evenly distribute the pressure. The block deformation in the ground contact area is thereby reduced and the wear is low, which increases the mileage.
Feature: A wide, flat contour with a large number of pitches and sipes
Effect: Even pressure distribution and reduced block deformation on the ground contact area
Benefit: Higher mileage thanks to reduced and even wear
Feature: High lateral stiffness thanks to closed shoulders with macro-blocks
Effect: Wide center and intermediate ribs support the transference of side forces at narrow wheel angles
Benefit: Precise handling and good directional stability on winding roads
Feature: Improved road surface contact thanks to a high number of grip edges due to sipes and a high pitch count number
Effect: State-of-the-art compound guarantees an improved grip on wet surfaces
Benefit: Short wet braking distances
Surface phase increases rigidity and improves handling
Wide groove structure allows high water absorption and improved wet handling
Finned body improves wet braking because gripping edges interact with the road surface
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.
