The MP 71 IZZARDA 4x4 A/T tyres are now being produced in 13 sizes for 15' - 17' rims in the speed category “T” up to 190 km/h. and “H” up to 210 km/h.
In 2003 Matador embarks on the road of producing the dynamically developing tyres for sport utility vehicles (SUV) with 4x4 drive for road and cross-country driving. The first Matador product in this market segment is the new SUV tyre MP 71 IZZARDA 4x4 A/T which will certainly please owners of SUV vehicles.
MP 71 IZZARDA is especially recommended for owners of SUV vehicles who expect balanced utility and driving characteristics on various road surfaces: dusty roads, asphalt, concrete, snow, ice, sand.MP 71 IZZARDA 4x4 A/T secures a balanced output in road and cross-country driving. It is characteristic for:
Improved output on dusty and gravel surface high rigidity of tread pattern
Low noise level and excellent gripping properties on wet and dry surface
Excellent design with inverse sidewall appearance and inscription set off in colour
Masterful off-road characteristics. The sturdy tread design with good carcass strength performs well even under difficult off-road conditions.
Good protection against aquaplaning. Deep grooves assist water displacement and provide superb off-road grip. This ensures outstanding off-road performance and greater protection against aquaplaning.
Better performance. The rigid, self-cleaning tread pattern improves performance on dusty surfaces, on gravel and on the road.
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.
