The new ULTRA GRIP MAX D drive tire provides 40% more snow grip compared to its predecessor when tires are half worn and 15% more mileage compared to its predecessor. Thanks to Goodyear ULTRA GRIP MAX Technology, ULTRA GRIP MAX D is the ideal choice for fleets looking for mobility in extreme winter conditions.
ULTRA GRIP MAX Technology
The new ULTRA GRIP MAX D tire sees the introduction of ULTRA GRIP MAX Technology which comprises two new Goodyear technologies: IntelliMax Block Technology and IntelliMax Edge Technology.
IntelliMax Block Technology features longitudinal, diamond shape blocks with variable depth, contoured sipes, producing variant block strengths to maximize sipe opening for optimal snow and ice grip. The contoured sipes interlock for ideal tread stiffness, when the tire rolls through its footprint, offering regular wear and a high mileage potential.
IntelliMax Edge Technology features tapered, stepped groove angles forming a high number of “biting edges” for optimum tire to road connectivity, especially on slippery surfaces.
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.
