Federal Formoza GIO Federal Tyres’ new PCR tyre, adopts multiple pitches, enclosed grooves on tyre shoulder and evenly cut sipes for lowering noises, special compound for enhancing traction and a brand new profile for avoiding uneven wear. It is a tyre features outstanding handling, low noise levels and fuel economy.
Honeycomb design on sidewall With more space for heat dissipation, both the heat tyre creates and rolling resistance coefficient are reduced.
Heat-lowering material added to special compound Silica included to cool the heat tyre generates while travelling as well as Rolling Resistance Coefficient. Blade-shaped design enhance water dispersion and efficiency of braking in the wet.
Multi-pitch arrangement Interrupting the sound frequency created when driving and lowering noise levels, increasing tranquility. Closed-groove design on shoulder avoids noises and gives better tranquility when travelling.
Even grooves cut on block Grooves cut evenly on block to balance tyre rigidity and lower noise levels.
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.
