Snow Tire Series SW211
Special pattern design enables to enjoy flexible operation and control on icy and snowy roads. Suitable for icy and snowy roads.
Better Operation and Control Performance
Asymmetric pattern design optimizes the performance of tires on dry and wet grounds, and improves comprehensive operation and control of tires on icy and snowy roads
Drainage and Slip Resistance
Three longitudinal grooves designed on tread improve slip resistant performance on snowy roads inwinter.
Herring Bone Patterns Have Stronger Grips
Herring bone patterns being used have strong icebreaking and water drainage performance, and big ground touching areas ensure the characteristics of tires on icy and snowy roads, while enhancing grips on icy grounds.
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.
