More miles and more economy - driving without limits
For sporty driving in all vehicles classes. Exceptionally good in all driving conditions.
Barum offers affordable long lasting performance
Precise handling and good directional stability on winding roads
Fits perfectly for example to Skoda Octavia, BMW Series 3 Convertible and VW Golf Convertible
The Bravuris 3HM delivers what the affix 'HM' promises: High Mileage! Thanks to minimal wear you can be sure to go further - with regard to mileage as well as superb driving comfort.
The Bravuris 3HM is a well-balanced tire that perfectly combines greater mileage with confident handling in all driving situations, offering extraordinary value for money.
Higher mileage due to reduced wear rate, even wear shape and reduced friction energy
Precise handling and safe driving on winding roads
Good directional stability
Short wet braking distances
Precise handling and good directional stability on winding roads. The high lateral stiffness due to closed shoulders with macroblocks lead to a superb transmission of lateral forces at minor steering angles. The effect of excellent handling on winding roads is complemented by intermediate ribs which guarantee good directional stability.
Short wet braking distances. The large number of gripping edges provided by sipes and the high number of pitches improve the contact with the road surface. The state of the art tread compound also guarantees optimum adhesion and short stopping distances on wet road surfaces.
High mileage. The wide, flat contour and a high number of pitches and sipes evenly distribute the pressure. The block deformation in the ground contact area is thereby reduced and the wear is low, which increases the mileage.
Feature: A wide, flat contour with a large number of pitches and sipes Effect: Even pressure distribution and reduced block deformation on the ground contact area Benefit: Higher mileage thanks to reduced and even wear
Feature: High lateral stiffness thanks to closed shoulders with macro-blocks Effect: Wide center and intermediate ribs support the transference of side forces at narrow wheel angles Benefit: Precise handling and good directional stability on winding roads
Feature: Improved road surface contact thanks to a high number of grip edges due to sipes and a high pitch count number Effect: State-of-the-art compound guarantees an improved grip on wet surfaces Benefit: Short wet braking distances
Surface phase increases rigidity and improves handling Wide groove structure allows high water absorption and improved wet handling Finned body improves wet braking because gripping edges interact with the road surface
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.

11.03.2019 from Philip J C Clements I have been driving since May 1964 in UK and on the Continent and New Zealand. I consider myself a considerate road user, conscious of other vehicles and their placement on the road. I try to drive as safely and frugally as possible, although I do let my hair down (if I had enough!) when driving my MGTF135 Sports Car on clear roads.
I will use the Volvo's power and acceleration when it is necessary to do so, so reducing any exposure to danger- but that does reduce the mpg factor! I have used Bravuris tyres since I bought the car in 2014 and found them excellent value for money.
12.02.2019 from Lewin Comfortable, stressless.
05.12.2018 from John Douglas Enjoy driving on Barum tyres .I have bought about 20 Barum tyres over the years. Good all round for value and safety
