We have now got good stocks of the Kingstar SK70 which is the latest passenger car tyre pattern from the Kingstar Tyre Company.
The “SK70 Road Fit” delivers best value, great handling, noise control and a comfortable ride. Kingstar is Hankook’s quality value tyre brand and is made in Hankook’s Chinese factories. This is not a Chinese cheapie brand, they are a great product backed up with great research and quality control.
Many of the cheaper Chinese tyres, some with famous old brand names, are just copies of old redundant patterns made in poor quality production facilities. Kingstar tyres are made in sophisticated first world tyre plants in patterns and constructions that have been created by Hankook Korea’s product development centres especially for the Kingstar brand.
They re not tired old patterns or failed products like many competitors use for their value brands. Megatyre, Browns Bay, North Shore, Auckland has sold Kingstar Tyres for over 8 years during which time they have proven to be a high quality, zero defect product. If you need great value, quiet, long life tyres, with great road holding and comfort, you need to fit our Kingstar Tyres to your vehicle. You will not regret it!
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
