Optimized tread design and block sequence reduce rolling noise level. Self-cleaning ribs at the groove bottom enhances mud and water evacuation. 3D lateral groove design helps to reduce early tire deformation. The outer tread balanced hardness enhances straigh and cornering control and great performance.
Asymmetrical design with an optimized block sequence
Compact central blocks and solid external area
Four wide longitudinal grooves with high content of silica compound
Tire deformation reduction
Excellent water evacuation
ADVANTAGES FOR THE USER
High safety and driving control
Optimal performance on wet surfaces
Thanks to the best technology Passion Run Flat tires allows to continue driving after a punctured tyre.
FEATURES, FUNCTION AND ADVANTAGES FOR THE USER
PASSION RFT is the Membat pattern for Run Flat tyres. It has been developed for drivers looking for an extra element of safety and convenience. Membat Run Flat tires feature reinforced sidewalls along with wider tire beads manufactured with a specific tire compound.
The PASSION RFT advanced rubber compound and tire cord are stronger than the ones in a regular tire sidewall, enabling it to support the vehicle’s weight with no air. Therefore, a sudden deflation results in less weight transfer and allows the driver to retain control of steering and normalize the handling.
HEAT-RESISTANT TIRE BEAD COMPOUND
The Run Flat tire compound resists heat build-up under zero pressure driving conditions. In enables driving an extended distance until the tire can be replaced*.
WIDE TIRE BEAD
A wide Run Flat tire bead firmly holds the tire on the wheel flange, avoiding tire bead separation from the wheel.
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.
