Product description

  • Entry level winter tyre for city and compact cars.
  • More grip on snow.
  • Enhanced snow traction.

Winter. More traction in snow thanks to the biting edges formed by numerous tread blocks, and in particular, the zig-zag shaped blocks in the central part. 3D sipes provide more grip on snowy and icy roads. Two thin Z-shaped grooves at the centre increase tread stiffness in this area and provide more lateral grip in snow. The tread compound features nanotechnology for a better dispersion of components to provide even more performance in winter.

Handling. Transverse grooves in the directional tread quickly drain water to reduce the risk of aquaplaning.

What is the rezulteo score?

The rezulteo score is calculated considering three performance categories: economy, comfort and safety. When it comes to winter tyres, the performance criteria snow and ice are added. By weighting different basic performance criteria an overall score is determined. This weighting is calculated based on the tyre size category: economic, high performance or sports.
