State-of-the-art tread structure for short braking distances on dry and wet roads, combined with great economy. The specialist for people carriers and vans. The tyre with excellent aquaplaning characteristics. Uniroyal offers more than 45 years of rain tyre know-how for optimum performance in the wet. Fits perfectly for example to Mercedes Sprinter, Volkswagen T5 and Fiat Ducato.
Excellent protection against aquaplaning
Shorter braking distances on wet and dry roads
Extremely long service life
Excellent protection against aquaplaning. An arrow-shaped groove structure and three, wide, circumferential channels avoid water turbulence in the grooves and provide substantially better water dispersion for high protection against aquaplaning.
Extremely long service-life. Optimised stiffness distribution in the tread ribs results in even wear. This provides for a long service-life, with optimised cornering stability.
Shorter braking distances on wet roads. A high number of sipes and gripping edges optimise water drainage of the ground contact patch (windscreen wiper effect). Short braking distances on wet roads is the benefit.
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.

10.05.2013fromHelmut Perner having the tyre only driven about 4500km since purchase I am very happy with the performance so far.
10.07.2012fromJ. Stöhrer Schon bei der ersten Fahrt nach Reifenwechsel total schwammiges unsichers Fahrgefühl.. Erster Gedanke: nur 1Bar Luftdruck, aber es waren 3,5bar. Nach einer Lenkbewegung schwingt das Auto nach. Alle Fahrer der Familie fühlen sich unwohl.
