We have now got good stocks of the Kingstar SK70 which is the latest passenger car tyre pattern from the Kingstar Tyre Company.
The “SK70 Road Fit” delivers best value, great handling, noise control and a comfortable ride. Kingstar is Hankook’s quality value tyre brand and is made in Hankook’s Chinese factories. This is not a Chinese cheapie brand, they are a great product backed up with great research and quality control.
Many of the cheaper Chinese tyres, some with famous old brand names, are just copies of old redundant patterns made in poor quality production facilities. Kingstar tyres are made in sophisticated first world tyre plants in patterns and constructions that have been created by Hankook Korea’s product development centres especially for the Kingstar brand.
They re not tired old patterns or failed products like many competitors use for their value brands. Megatyre, Browns Bay, North Shore, Auckland has sold Kingstar Tyres for over 8 years during which time they have proven to be a high quality, zero defect product. If you need great value, quiet, long life tyres, with great road holding and comfort, you need to fit our Kingstar Tyres to your vehicle. You will not regret it!
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.
