Snow/Ice Excellent for use on snow – snowflake symbol and M+S designation, for secure starting and stopping on snow.
Rain Excellent performance on wet roads. Achieved Class B in the wet performance category of the European tire label. This means up to 5% shorter braking distance on wet roads, and an 8% lower risk of hydroplaning in a straight line and 4% in curves, compared to its predecessor KLEBER Quadraxer (internal test in the size 205/55 R16 91H, conducted in December 2014).
Dry Roads Improved performance on dry roads – up to 3.5 m shorter braking distance compared to its predecessor KLEBER Quadraxer (internal test in the size 205/55 R16 91H, conducted in January 2015).
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.

12.03.2019 from T Yates These are excellent tyres especially considering the price. An improvement on my Michelin tyres which were not all weather, that came with the car, and quiet at 68 db.
17.09.2018 from John Covington I've now used these tyres on 3 vehicles. My last a BMW 328i Touring. So real wheel drive and now my Volvo S80 front wheel drive. This latest version is further improved. It ticks all the boxes for me. A great value all season tyre, the new Quadraxer 2 does exactly what it says on the tin. And quietly. Love it.
I'm still a rated Skid Pan Instructor and Winter Driving Specialist plus I was a High Performance and Trackday Coach, so not easily impressed. I'm impressed!
Unless something better comes along at an affordable price I'm sticking with Klebers.
