Owing to its, optimal profile Designs developed by computer simulation this tire offers optimal running properties and high travelling comfort. The optimized profile Design with straight grooves provides for high aquaplaning. The silica tread compound guarantees optimal brake behavior on dry and wet underground. Silica (silicic acid) provides as a component of the rubber mixture for a better wet adhesion of the tire. Beyond that this material affects run achievement and rolling friction positively.
Comfort and safety across the entire range
Developed for compact- and middle-class vehicles and SUVs.
Outstanding aquaplaning safety and ideal comfort.
Fits perfectly for example to Ford Fiesta, Renault Twingo and Alfa Romeo Mito.
High aquaplaning safety
The new RainExpert 3 has a tread structure based on the shark skin.
This special tread minimises water turbulence and channels water away from the tread more quickly.
This means the tyre provides a high level of protection against aquaplaning.
Short braking distances on wet and dry roads
The tyre tread grips the road surface perfectly, establishing strong contact.
This extra adhesion leads to short stopping distances on dry and wet roads.
Low rolling resistance on any road
With the RainExpert 3 the tread surface is used to optimum effect in contact with the road.
This leads to reduced loss of friction, resulting in lower rolling resistance on all road surfaces and reduced wear.
For compact-, middle-, and upper-class vehicles and SUVs. Good grip in snow.
The Polaris 3 is the ideal tire for economical drivers since its low wear ensures a high mileage performance and its low rolling resistance results in reduced fuel consumption. ‘Snow catchers‘ in the tread keep the snow in the groove, making it possible for the Polaris 3 to transfer the power of the engine to the snowy slopes when accelerating and provides an excellent braking performance.
Optimised setting-off and braking in snow.
'Snow catchers' keep the snow in the grooves, optimise start-up on snowy roads and enable controlled braking.
Low rolling resistance and reduced fuel consumption.
An extra groove in the shoulder block minimises rolling resistance and therefore also fuel consumption.
Low wear means high mileage performance.
Sipes of different depths, arranged obliquely to the block edge, ensure low tyre wear. This increases durability and cost efficiency.
Radial tires summer, 195 mm tire width and 60% tire height for a 15 inch rim. This tire is designed for a speed of up to 210 km / h.
The modern profile provides optimum high behaviour on dry and wet roads.The use of first-class materials of selected quality guarantee a long life and peaceful pleasant driving behaviour.
Outstanding cornering characteristics. The closed outer shoulder of the tyre enables it to withstand more extreme lateral forces. This results in outstanding handling and good cornering stability.
Excellent protection against aquaplaning. An open inner shoulder and wide grooves running around the circumference displace water rapidly in rain. This protects against aquaplaning.
Visual wear indicator. A tread-depth indicator responds to tread wear and visually alerts the user in good time when the tyre has to be replaced.
New summer tyre tread, expanding the offer of tyres for lower and medium class cars, with an asymmetric pattern of a timeless design, reflecting the latest trends and knowledge in the tyre treads development. Compared to the previous MP15 tyre, the boundaries in the area of safety and comfort have been significantly shifted. The decreased level of noise positively influences comfort, while the new shape, mixture and configuration mean a higher lifetime.
Due to different properties, the pattern is divided into the inside and outside parts. The task of the outside part is the maximum transfer of forces during acceleration, deceleration and drive direction changes. For this reason, the outside part is composed of more massive pattern blocks with a higher share of the material in the area of the tyre trace. The inside part is composed of blocks of smaller widths with larger grooves that provide for water drainage from the central zone, which improves the road contact on wet surfaces, thus allowing a safe transfer of propelling and brake forces.
The tyre tread uses a new technology - VOC FREE – of the preparation of an ecological silicone tread mixture with a low rolling resistance and a high adhesion to both dry and wet roads. The mixture includes an applied silanisation activator of a new generation, which ensures lower VOC (volatile organic compounds, e.g. alcohols) emissions compliant with EU standards, an ecological RAE-type plasticiser, and it also uses a new high-efficient processing admixture, which in combination with the silanisation activator significantly lowers the rolling resistance of the tyres.
Noisiness is decreased using a different layout of pattern inserts of the outside and inside parts and due to the shape of pattern blocks, designed taking into account the comfort and rigidity of the tyre tread. The design of the sidewall is made in a plastic way in a combination of soft shapes, allowing the characteristic features and the group of information elements to come out, which offer the customer information about the lifetime development and the position of the tyre tread on a vehicle. The in-pattern indicator informs about the remaining status of the pattern depth.
