Asymetrical Tread Pattern

What is it?

An asymmetric pattern is designed to blend the requirements of dry grip and water dispersal/snow traction where the tread pattern changes across the face of the tire.

An asymmetric tread pattern usually incorporates larger tread ribs/blocks on the outboard side to increase cornering stability on dry roads by offering greater contact area. This also helps to reduce tread squirm and heat buildup on the outside shoulder.

The inboard side usually features smaller independent tread blocks to aid wet and/or winter traction when driving straight ahead. Tires featuring asymmetric tread patterns allow using multiple tire rotation patterns.

How will you benefit?

  • The ability to combine different types of performance, which would be very hard to achieve in other tread patterns (directional or symmetrical tyres).
  • Depending on their tread patterns - pushing back the moment where aquaplaning occurs.
  • Asymmetrical tyres allow for more stable and faster cornering on both dry and wet surfaces.
  • Work well with the latest generation of in-car solutions - traction control and braking assistance systems.
  • They allow for transferring high torques and powers of modern cars in all conditions.
  • They wear out more slowly and more easily.
  • They look better.

Dimensions & Markings

Tyre Width

195mm wide

The width of a tyre makes no discernible difference in fuel economy. Width however makes a huge difference in the handling of a vehicle. The wider the tyre, the larger the footprint on the road.

Border Height (ratio)

65%wide

Height of a tyre makes a major difference and can adversely effect the operation of the vehicle. The height of the tyre changes the final gear ratio. All late model vehicles are set up from the computer to transmission for a certain size tyre for the proper gear ratio.

The speedometer and speed sensors will not send the correct speed signal to the transmission and shifting points will change.

Max Loadweight in kg

890 kg

The load index is the tyre size's assigned numerical value used to compare relative load carrying capabilities.

The higher the tyre's load index number, the greater its load carrying capacity.

Max Speedkm/h

T190 km/h

Speed ratings were established to match the speed capability of tyres with the top speed capability of the vehicles to which they are applied.

The maximum operating speed of a vehicle must be limited to the lowest speed rated tyre on the vehicle.

Tyre Rotation Patterns

Tyre rotation can be beneficial in several ways. When done at the recommended times, it can preserve balanced handling and traction and even out tyre wear. Tyre rotation can even provide performance advantages.

Tyre rotation helps even out tyre wear by allowing each tyre to serve in as many of the vehicle’s wheel positions as possible. Remember, tyre rotation can’t correct wear problems due to worn mechanical parts or incorrect inflation pressures.

While vehicles are typically equipped with four tyres, usually the tyres on the front axle need to accomplish very different tasks than the tyres on the rear axle. The tasks encountered on a front-wheel drive vehicle are considerably different than those of a rear-wheel drive vehicle. Tyre wear experienced on a performance vehicle will usually be more severe than that of a family sedan. Each wheel position can cause different wear rates and different types of tyre wear.

It is an advantage when all four tyres wear together because as wear reduces a tyre’s tread depth, it allows all four tyres to respond to the driver’s input more quickly, maintains the handling and helps increase the tyre’s cornering traction.

We recommend that tyres be rotated every 5,000 km to 8,000 km even if they don't show signs of wear. Tyre rotation can often be done with oil change intervals while the vehicle is off the ground. This can also be a good time to have your tyres rebalanced. It's also a good time to inspect the tyres for any damage, remove stones or debris from the tyre treads, check for uneven wear by checking the tyre tread depth and of course, checking your tyre pressure.

While many vehicles are equipped with temporary spares that cannot be included in a tyre rotation program, if the vehicle’s four wheels and tyres on the ground match the spare wheel and tyre (if non-directional and not branded "for temporary use"), they should be included in the tyre rotation pattern. Follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended tyre rotation procedures, or if not available, insert the spare in the right rear position at every rotation. Place the tyre that would have gone to the right rear in the trunk as the spare until the next tyre rotation.

What does the New EU Labels actually mean?

Sample of the new EU Tyre Labels
Sample of the new EU Tyre Labels

Since 1st November 2012 in the European Union has been introduced new EU Tyre Label. The goal of these EU Tyre Labels is to promote:

  • Reduction of fuel consumtion and related CO2 and pollutants emissions due to road transport in the framework of sustainable mobility and the fight against climate change.
  • Improving road safety by improvement of tyres wet grip - the capacity of a tyre to brake on a wet road.
  • Reducing the traffic noise.

Tyres are an important component of cars as they account for 20% to 30% of fuel consumption depending on vehicle speed (over 70 km/h, aerodynamic drag exceeds rolling resistance as a parameter influencing consumption).

Fuel efficient tyres are cost-effective. The increased production costs, i.e. the purchase price paid by consumers, will be compensated by fuel savings made in the in-use period with a payback period of less than eight months (including tax) for the most fuel- efficient tyres.

Possible Trade-Offs

Lowering rolling resistance may have an adverse impact on other tyre parameters, the most important of which is wet grip, but also tread wear (life duration of tyres) and external rolling noise.

The potential trade-off between tyre performance characteristics has therefore been included in the analysis.

Fuel Efficiency

from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient)

Rolling resistance is one factor of your tyres that can affect your fuel consumption. The lower the rolling resistance, the less fuel is required to move your vehicle forward and the less carbon emissions are generated. The difference in fuel consumption between A and G-rated tyres could be as much as 7.5%*. For an average passenger vehicle, that is around 0.65L per 100km.

  • current
  • 1.2% Increase0.84l /1 000km (33.6l/40 000km)

Wet Grip

from A (best) to G (worst)

Braking response is one important element of your tyre’s performance in the wet and is essential for your safety. The difference in braking distance between A and G-rated tyres could be as much as 30%*. For a passenger car travelling at 80kph, for example, that can mean up to 18m in the case of full braking in wet-weather conditions.

Breaking Distance

  • up to 30% longer braking distance (difference from A to G grade)full braking at 80km/h produces up to 18m difference
    • A11-20%7-9m shorter
    • B1-10%4-5m shorter

Noise Emissions

3 ratings from 1 (quietest) to 3 (the least quiet)

Exterior tyre noise is measured in decibels (dB) and compared with the new European tyre exterior noise levels to be introduced in 2016.

  • 1 black sound wave= already 3dB below the future European limit 2016Tyres Noise Emissions ≤ 68dB
  • 2 black sound wave= already compliant with the future European limit 68dB < Tyres Noise Emissions ≤ 71
  • 3 black sound wave= compliant with the current European limit 201271 < Tyres Noise Emissions

74dB

every 3dB = double the amount of noise


  • 68dB = the sound from 1 automobile

  • 3dB more (71dB) = double the amount of noise

  • 6dB more (74dB) = four times the amount of noise

Match the tyres on your
Four- or All-Wheel drive vehicles

Why is it so important?

The ability of four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles to divide the engine's horsepower between its four tyres is especially useful on loose or slippery surfaces such as sand and dirt, as well as on wet, icy or snow-covered roads. However it's important to remember that in order to transfer this extra power, the four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicle's driveline mechanically connects the tyres so they work in unison.

Four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles are equipped with additional differentials and/or viscous couplings that are designed to allow momentary differences in wheel speeds when the vehicle turns a corner or temporarily spins a tyre. However, if the differentials or viscous couplings are forced to operate 100% of the time because of mismatched tyres, they will experience excessive heat and unwarranted wear until they fail.

It's important to use four tyres, that are the same brand, design, tread depth and size. Mixing tyre brands, tread designs, tread depths and tyre dimensions (width and rim diameter) may cause components in the vehicle's driveline to fail.

Using improper inflation pressures for all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles can also result in immediate drivability problems.

Why to rotate them?

Because the front and rear tyres of all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles perform different duties while accelerating, braking and cornering, tyre rotation is important to even out, and maintain equivalent treadwear of all of the vehicle's tyres to minimize potential driveline stresses.

If the vehicle is equipped with a matching road wheel and full-sized spare tyre, they should be integrated into the vehicle's rotation pattern at the first tyre rotation. This will allow all five of the vehicle's tyres to share in the workload and wear at similar rates. In the event that a single tyre is damaged and has to be removed from service, this will allow the tread depth equivalent spare tyre to be used with the remaining three tyres.

If the spare is not integrated into the vehicle's tyre rotation pattern, it will not match the tread depth of the four worn tyres on the ground when called into service. Additionally, if a single tyre is replaced by the full size spare tyre, hopefully the new replacement tyre can remain as the spare tyre until the other four tyres have worn out and need to be replaced.

And the following too...

Where to Install New Pairs of Tyres?

(when changing only one pair)

There's a Problem

Intuition suggests that since the front tyres wore out first and because there is still about half of the tread remaining on the rear tyres, the new tyres should be installed on the front axle. This will provide more wet and wintry traction; and by the time the front tyres have worn out for the second time, the rear tyres will be worn out, too. However in this case, intuition isn't right...and following it can be downright dangerous.

When tyres are replaced in pairs in situations like these, the new tyres should always be installed on the rear axle and the partially worn tyres moved to the front. New tyres on the rear axle help the driver more easily maintain control on wet roads since deeper treaded tyres are better at resisting hydroplaning.

What's the solution?

If the front tyres have significantly less tread depth than the rear tyres, the front tyres will begin to hydroplane and lose traction on wet roads before the rear tyres. While this will cause the vehicle to understeer (the vehicle wants to continue driving straight ahead), understeer is relatively easy to control because releasing the gas pedal will slow the vehicle and help the driver maintain control.

However, if the front tyres have significantly more tread depth than the rear tyres, the rear tyres will begin to hydroplane and lose traction on wet roads before the fronts. This will cause the vehicle to oversteer (the vehicle will want to spin). Oversteer is far more difficult to control and in addition to the initial distress felt when the rear of the car starts sliding, quickly releasing the gas pedal in an attempt to slow down may actually make it more difficult for the driver to regain control, possibly causing a complete spinout.
