For middle-class and luxury vehicles and SUVs. Outstanding performance on snow and wet roads. Matador brand with long tradition, wide portfolio and reliable performance. Improved traction and braking on snow. Fits perfectly for example to Skoda Octavia, VW Passat and VW Touareg.
Excellent grip and driving safety in winter.
A new generation of winter passenger car tyres, a wide range of sizes to fit on 15' to 18' rims..
We introduce a new generation of winter tyres specially designed for winter operation of vehicles of middle, upper middle and luxury class.
MP92 Sibir Snow M+S offers excellent grip, handling and braking in winter conditions, wide range of sizes from 15' to 18' and speed categories 'T', „H“, 'V' (190 kmph, 210 kmph, 240 kmph).
Sufix Snow means that the tyre is designed for European winter conditions without application of studs. A pictograph on the side wall as a warranty of high reliability and excellent grip in winter conditions - winter grip test according to ASTM F-1805.
Technical Highlights – Snow traction and snow braking
More aggressive design of tread pattern, Zig-zag „Z“ system. More cross grooves and grip edges.
Snow is better captured in tread pattern, better interlocking with snow. High number of grip edges – high snow performance.
Enhanced snow traction and snow braking.
Technical Highlights – wet braking
Open on the inside of part pattern – Inside, circumferential rib tread pattern with more balanced mix compound.
Better braking characteristic. Enhanced water dispersion.
Compact shoulder blocks – Outside, combination with new sipes technogy.
Ensure high lateral pattern stiffness and handling on wet surface.
Improved wet handling and steering in wintertime.
Technical Highlights – High performance and comfort
Optimized stiffness of tread pattern and variable sizes of blocks.
Even pressure distribution in track, decreased wear and noise.
High performance and comfort drive.
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.
