Facts about tyres
A genuine high-quality tyre is much more than a piece of rubber; the result of meticulous development and thorough testing, it is a carefully prepared high-tech product involving a great degree of manual work, chemical and technical expertise, precision and high-quality raw materials. No wonder then, that it takes from two to four years of development work before a new tyre hits the road.
Tyres are the most important safety accessory on your car: they are the connection between you and the road surface. Tyres will greatly affect safety and driving comfort. Ensure that your tyres in good condition and remember to maintain them.
Starting in November 2012, buying new tyres in the European Union will be made easier by the new tyre labels that are similar to the energy labels for household appliances. The labels will guide consumers towards acquiring tyres that are of higher quality and, therefore, safer.
