The new ULTRA GRIP MAX D drive tire provides 40% more snow grip compared to its predecessor when tires are half worn and 15% more mileage compared to its predecessor. Thanks to Goodyear ULTRA GRIP MAX Technology, ULTRA GRIP MAX D is the ideal choice for fleets looking for mobility in extreme winter conditions.
ULTRA GRIP MAX Technology
The new ULTRA GRIP MAX D tire sees the introduction of ULTRA GRIP MAX Technology which comprises two new Goodyear technologies: IntelliMax Block Technology and IntelliMax Edge Technology.
IntelliMax Block Technology features longitudinal, diamond shape blocks with variable depth, contoured sipes, producing variant block strengths to maximize sipe opening for optimal snow and ice grip. The contoured sipes interlock for ideal tread stiffness, when the tire rolls through its footprint, offering regular wear and a high mileage potential.
IntelliMax Edge Technology features tapered, stepped groove angles forming a high number of “biting edges” for optimum tire to road connectivity, especially on slippery surfaces.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
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.
