When temperatures drop and the weather worsens, people who drive for work need products they can depend on completely. 4 Winter Comm has been designed for this very reason: to ensure safety through exceptional grip on snow and on mixed or wet surfaces in the coldest months of the year. To create 4 Winter Comm, Marangoni has combined the experience acquired in the development of the new e-comm light commercial tyres with the 4WD (4 Winter Driving) winter technology. Underpinned by the characteristics of reliability and comfort developed with e-comm, 4 Winter Comm offers additional performance on snow and ice that puts it at the top of the market. Designed to provide the maximum in extreme winter conditions, the special pattern of longitudinal grooves nonetheless ensures a perfect balance between resistance to aquaplaning and grip on snow, making 4 Winter Comm a high performance tyre also on the mixed or wet surfaces that are typical of the transition seasons. The new tread compound with low hysteresis and high grip gives the tyre extremely safe road behaviour, even on icy surfaces where braking and traction performance make the real difference.
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.
