All Position tyre suitable for quarry or construction site, featuring excellent resistance, durability and retread value. Excellent performance, also for ‘site-support’ activities on asphalted and mixed roads.
G On/Off: products designed for mixed use vehicles on the road, on construction sites and under slightly-aggressive tread-wear conditions.
Q Off: products designed for vehicles used solely on construction sites, in quarries and mining operations with highly-aggressive tread-wear conditions.
TREAD DESIGN • Robust circumferential ribs, rounded contour and a tread groove profile are optimised to guarantee greater resistance to lacerations. • Optimum tread depth ensures a longer tyre life and excellent mileage. • Narrowed base in central groove increases resistance to stone trapping and perforation. • Zig-zag longitudinal grooves and wide transversal shoulder grooves maximise grip on any surface. • Increased undertread to reduce the possibility of accidental casing damage.
TREAD COMPOUND Tread compound specially formulated to provide: • Increased resistance to tears and lacerations. • Improved mileage in on-road applications. • Lower operating temperatures benefit tyre integrity and retreadability.
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.
