Matador brand with long tradition, wide portfolio and reliable performance
High snow traction
Fits perfectly for example to Skoda Fabia, VW Polo and Peugeot 206
Excellent grip (traction) and driving safety in winter.
New generation of winter car tyres, wide range of rim sizes from 13“ to 15“.
We introduce a new generation of winter car tyres designed especially for compact and midrange cars. Latest technologies and aggressive directional tread provide high traction (grip) and safe braking on snow and ice, improved safety on wet surface and driving comfort.
A winter pictogram on the sidewall guarantees high reliability and excellent traction (grip) in winter conditions – tyres conform to winter grip test according to ASTM F-1805.
MP54 Sibir Snow is available in a wide range of 24 sizes, in speed category „T“ – up to 190 kmph, widths from 145 mm up to 185 mm, designed for wheel rims from 13“ to 15“.
MP54 Sibir Snow tyre is equippped with „Winter TWI“ – a winter tread wear indicator built-in circumferentially in several spots of the tread pattern, with height of 4 mm, indicating the need to replace the winter tyre after reaching this limit, thus maintaining driving safety in winter cionditions.
MP54 Sibir Snow offers an innovation element on the side wall – indication of tyre position on the vehicle - appreciated by drivers and servicemen when changing the tyres in line with the changing season.

Aggressive V-design shape.
High void volume with high number of block edges.
„Zig-zag“ shaped main central groove.
High snow volume capacity and interlocking with the snow.
Optimal snow traction.
Technical Highlights - Wet
Large number of lateral grooves in V-direction combined with good water displacement from the tyre centre outwards.
Wide central main groove.
Water is displaced effectively.
High safety on wet roads.
Technical Highlights - Wear
Narrow and shallow longitudinal lateral grooves in the tread center.
Even pressure distribution in the footprint.
Even wear and comfortable ride and longer tyre service life.
Technical Highlights - Comfort
Optimised tread pattern stiffness and material distribution.
Rolling noise is reduced by the optimised frequency distribution.
Low noise levels and thus improved 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.
