As soon as the temperature dips below 40°, it’s time to put on your Winter Landers.
After all, even its tread compound was designed for the cold. Winter Landers will get you through snow and winter-wet conditions, while they provide stability and driving comfort even when the weather clears. The Largest Selection of Staggered Tire Sizes for Replacement and Original Equipment Fitments.
Features & Benefits
Advanced winter-grip compounding: The Winter Lander’s tread compound is specially formulated for the cold — so it delivers enhanced traction and braking when warm-season tires can’t
Wet traction tread design: The V-shaped tread quickly evacuates water for outstanding wet handling, decreased hydroplaning and low noise
Snow traction groove design: The sipe pattern is organized in high-density waves so that each sipe can apply maximum force to the snowy road surface
3-D, stay-open sipes: They stay open when they make contact with the ground, so they can bite into snow more effectively
Stiff shoulder design: The shoulder is specially designed with stiff blocks that deliver cornering stability and driving comfort
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.
