The PrecisionACE2 is a very well-balanced tyre all across the board. It is particularly impressive due to its high safety margins on wet roads. This is complimented by its durability, comfort and good driveability. The optimised overall profile means the tyre also achieves a high level of driving stability and reacts predictably when it comes to handling even in difficult weather conditions or critical driving situations.
With the release of the new PrecisionACE2, AEOLUS is making good on its promise of continuous product development. And there’s more; the PrecisionACE2 bears the TÜV MARK QUALIFICATION quality label from TÜV SÜD PRODUCT SERVICE [Report N° 713048423/AH03] and therefore demonstrably confirms its high level of European quality.
Four wide circumferential longitudinal grooves with an expanded contour put the tyre in a position to take on and drain a high volume of water. This reduces the risk of flooding and aquaplaning.
The modern tread compound meets a range of different requirements for the latest tyres. Wet grip and braking in wet conditions are the focus here. What’s more, the low rolling resistance value reduces fuel consumption and also decreases emission values.
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.
