Kleber Transpro 4S
«THE» all season tyre for light trucks
For light trucks.
Practical and efficient all year long
- KLEBER Transpro 4S is an all season tyre: no need to be concerned with changing tyres twice a year, nor with their storage. That means time and money saved
- Its fuel consumption is sparing: labeled C for its fuel consumption, it saves more than the KLEBER Transalp 2 winter tyre and it is the best in its category for this attribute
Performing in snow
- KLEBER Transpro 4S is approved with 3PMSF and M+S markings
- Its performance on snow is even better than KLEBER Transalp 2 winter tyre
- The significant width of its transversal grooves and the sipes orientation allows good grip in snow
Among the bests in its category for wet braking
- KLEBER Transpro 4S has a B labelling for braking distance on wet roads, which makes it one of the best tyres in its category
- Its safety level on wet roads is as good as a light truck summer tyre and better than a light truck winter tyre
- The tread blocks size and the numerous sipes favorize grip on wet roads
- The water is efficiently evacuated thanks to network of «connected» longitudinal and transversal grooves
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.
