The Atturo Az800 is an Ultra High Performance tyre designed for SUV and sport truck applications. The Directional tread pattern and aggressive sidewall style demonstrate the performance engineering beneath the surface.
New SRG (Sloped Radius Gradient) tread pattern for outstanding wet performance, namely wet handling, and prevents uneven wear
Unique complex sipes for ultimate comfort at all speeds
Extra hard carbon black in rubber compound reduces tyre flexion - increases comfort when cornering
Large shoulder blocks engineered for tighter grip when cornering, improved handling capability and enhanced steering response
High tensile bead wire and high bead filler maximize tire stability, safety and high speed reliability
Rim Protector provides extra protection for rims from curbs and potholes
High Turn-Up Polyester Casing keeps tire in proper dimensions and significantly enhances safety during heat build-up
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.

27.02.2016 from Marcus-Australia These are only on the back as I needed wider tyres for more grip. They handle well but are very noisy in the cabin. But for the price I am not going to complain. They outperform the factory Goodyears 10 to 1. Will put them on the front when they need replacing.
11.01.2016 from harold gordon Tires ride hard especially over bumps aND are extremely loud!!!
31.12.2015 from Dave Amazing tires, so good in fact that I bought two more sets. Travelled 70,000km on two sets so far and they stick like glue to the road in dry and wet. I drive very fast around corners and these tires have never lost traction, best tires I have ever driven on.
12.08.2015 from Ken Ingham The tyre is good,good price
,relatively quiet,I found the tyres great replacement for the original.
