Goodyear and Dunlop tires advertise their most efficient


As of today entered into force on European labeling of tires, but voluntarily. As of November 1, 2012 will be mandatory, so the customer knows in advance the energy efficiency of its wheels and the grip in the wet and the numerical value of sound measured in decibels. Review with us the new labeling.

Goodyear and Dunlop have announced two separate tires that have earned the highest score in consumption and adherence: AA, but for now they will not sell, are prototypes. Will be shown for the first time in REIFEN, a show dedicated to the tires in Essen (Germany) on June 5. By the way, “Reifen” in German means tires.

On one side is the Goodyear EfficientGrip AA Edition, based on the existing EfficientGrip for sale. The developments are in the tread, and a new improved composite manufacturing technique. Will be produced a few prototypes to improve the wheel face to be sold (and how not to pay).

EfficientGrip is a summer tire for passenger car means high performance segment (HP). From the sports-oriented brand, Dunlop, AA is the second tire. This is the Dunlop Sport BluResponse AA, similar to EfficientGrip orientation.

The improvements are similar: composite technology to reduce heat dissipation (rolling resistance), the band structure and manufacturing techniques. Neither will be sold, and used for research.

On the big question, what’s the current efficiency of the tires of these brands are data that have not yet been provided. The difference between A (best) and G (worst) is 0.5 l/100 km on average (approximately). Within a few months you will not need to be a guru to better choose what we put our car tires.
