Rain, freezing rain, sleet or snow – winter comes in many forms which make driving challenging. With more than 50 years of rain tyre experience, we know exactly how to deal with wet and snowy roads. Introducing the new Uniroyal WinterExpert – the innovative tyre that handles every challenge that winter has to offer.
In winter, you cannot always trust the weather forecasts but you can trust your tyres. The new tread pattern design and Shark Skin Technology provide excellent handling performance on wet roads and reduce the risk of aquaplaning. Experience ideal driving conditions even in not so ideal weather conditions!
When the cold days come, your driving pleasure stays. Due to the unique 3D zig zag groove structure this tyre ensures great snow traction and snow handling performance. In this way, you always reach your destination safe and relaxed – even in snow or rain.
Now, you can enjoy the wintry season even more. The improved rolling resistance performance provides extra-high mileage. It’s innovative silica compound reduces energy loss and ensures good braking performance at the same time. So, your new tyres keep your mood up, even on dark and cold winter days.
Tyres with high wet grip performance (A or B graded) have shorter braking distances on wet roads and are, therefore, safer in the rain. As with fuel efficiency, the D grade isn’t used and there are no plans to use G.
Tyres account for up to 20% of your vehicle’s fuel consumption so, if you want to get more miles per tank of fuel, you should choose tyres with a high fuel efficiency rating. You will also lower your CO2 emissions. It comes down to rolling resistance i.e. the energy lost when a tyre is moving. The lower the rolling resistance, the less energy is lost and the lower your fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The difference between an A-rated tyre and a G-rated tyre could be as much as 6 litres per 625 miles.
This is the external noise made by the tyre and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tyres.
