  • Description
  • Tire Label
  • Technical specifications

A unique tire with an up-to-date design and directional tread pattern, developed especially for use by light trucks under winter conditions on city streets as well as highway-type roads.

Features of the MPS 520 Tires:

  • Directional tread pattern designed to meet requirements of high reliability, maximum safety and excellent durability
  • Improved mileage
  • Increased adhesive qualities on wet surfaces
  • New generation of eco-friendly silica tread compound
  • New generation of space lamellas
  • Low voluble resistance
  • Enhanced traction on snowy and frozen surfaces
  • High driving comfort
  • Good stability at high speeds
  • Plastic side of tire design

Description and Functionality of Tread Pattern Elements

  • The MPS 520 – Nordicca Van Tread Pattern is a directional type tread pattern with an up-to-date design, especially developed for use by light trucks under winter conditions on city streets as well as highway-type roads
  • The tread pattern is designed to meet requirements of high reliability, maximum safety and excellent durability.

Directional Configuration of Tread Pattern Blocks

  • Directional Tread Pattern = ideal off-take of water and snow slip, remarkable aquaplaning characteristics, excellent traction on snowy and frozen surfaces
  • Up-to-date tread pattern concept = comfortable and quiet driving
    Computer-aided design of the tread pattern = minimum tire wear = enhanced tire mileage
  • Flexible width of the tread pattern blocks = high driving comfort

Open Side-block Concept

  • Robust, armed tread pattern side-blocks = very good tracking = high mileage, excellent curve stability, dynamic driving parameters, perfect handling
  • Open side grooves = good traction and braking characteristics on snowy roads, excellent self-cleaning abilities

Lamella Tread Pattern System

  • More than 1100 lamellas providing a large number of adhesive edges = good traction and braking characteristics on snowy and icy roads
  • New generation of lamellas = enhanced traction on snow and ice, improved driving stability when transporting maximum loads on dry and wet surfaces
 EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

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.
