Benefits
EFFICIENTGRIP PERFORMANCE 2 - Summer Tire - 225/50/R18/99V
Mileage Plus Technology
High tread elasticity and flexibility results in less fractures caused by rough road conditions (over a wide range of temperatures).
Wet Braking Technology
Lower compound stiffness facilitates block bending and wiping out of water. Longer and increased number of gripping edges facilitates water evacuation.
Dry Stability Plus Technology
Larger ribs at the center of the tread ensure higher stiffness

EU Tyre Label

B
Fuel efficiency
Fuel efficiency is a measure of the tyre's rolling resistance. A tyre with low rolling resistance is fuel efficient because it requires less energy to roll. Fuel efficiency is rated from A (highest rating) to E (lowest rating).
A
Wet grip
Wet grip measures the braking ability of the tyre on wet surfaces. Wet grip is rated from A (shortest stopping distance) to E (longest stopping distance).
A
Exterior noise
Measures the tyre's noise level outside the vehicle in decibels. The noise class is rated from A (quiet) to C (loud).
