Black on white - the price is right.

For compact-, middle-, and upper-class vehicles and SUVs. Good grip in snow.

  • Barum offers affordable long lasting performance
  • Optimised setting-off and braking in snow
  • Fits perfectly for example to Volkswagen Golf, Opel Astra and Ford Focus

The Polaris 3 is the ideal tire for economical drivers since its low wear ensures a high mileage performance and its low rolling resistance results in reduced fuel consumption. ‘Snow catchers‘ in the tread keep the snow in the groove, making it possible for the Polaris 3 to transfer the power of the engine to the snowy slopes when accelerating and provides an excellent braking performance.

Technical details:

  • Low rolling resistance, resulting in reduced fuel consumption
  • Improved handling in the wet
  • Optimised setting-off and braking in snow
  • Low wear means highmileage performance

Optimised setting-off and braking in snow.
'Snow catchers' keep the snow in the grooves, optimise start-up on snowy roads and enable controlled braking.

Low rolling resistance and reduced fuel consumption.
An extra groove in the shoulder block minimises rolling resistance and therefore also fuel consumption.

Low wear means high mileage performance.
Sipes of different depths, arranged obliquely to the block edge, ensure low tyre wear. This increases durability and cost efficiency.

 EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
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.
