Flatter tread profile. The new generation of Dunlop tyres features a flatter tread profile with a 4-8% bigger contact patch, depending on size and type of tyre. A bigger contact patch delivers more stability and enhanced road feedback, allowing tires to respond quickly and precisely.Benefits Increased stability and steering precision; reduced heel and toe wear; excellent cornering stability and precision; superior dry grip.
Multi Blade System. Winter driving conditions can vary greatly. From cold and dry to snow or sleet, these conditions make very high demands on a tyre. Dunlop’s multiple blade system meets this challenge head on, with different types of blades for varying winter road conditions. Benefits Consistent performance in various winter conditions.
Functional Polymers. Functional Polymers in the tread compound produce enhanced performance characteristics at low temperatures, improving road adhesion when winter temperatures plummet.Benefits Exceptional grip at low temperatures.
Multi Radius Tread (MRT). MRT designs employ ten different radii and are therefore more precise. This results in highly effective pressure deployment on the road contact patch. The effect is smoother transitions from straight to corner, leading to more precise and progressive reactions.Benefits Significantly better control over the evolution of the footprint in all driving conditions; responsive wet and dry handling; increased cornering control.
Wind noise (created by air-flow at high speed)
Tread/block road rumble. “Airpumping” also known as “groove resonance” , where the grooves are compressed and then released again. (Structural) Vibrations of the tyre/carcass.
Tyre noise is mainly transmitted by:
One of the biggest noise sources, is the so-called Cavity Resonance which is transmitted into the car as body noise because of the axle construction.
'How does Foamin Tyre work'
Once the tyre has been heated, a foam strip is fitted to the inner liner. This reduces tyre (carcass) noise considerably.
Principle of operation:
Sounds are transmitted by 2 main mechanisms: By air movement (Air resonance): The air molecules are stimulated to vibrate (wave form).
By structural resonance (Body resonance): Vibrations are transmitted by the vehicle structure.
A large part of inerior car noise is due to resonance caused by vibration of the tyres. This is transmitted to the inside of the car via the structure (body resonance). Counter measures taken at noise source, in this case, at the tyre, are easier and more effective than they would be at other car components, e.g. at the drive train or the body.
How can the vibrations in the tyres be reduced?
Fitting a foam strip to the inner liner of the tyre helps to markedly reduce the tyre (carcass) noise. Reduced resonance in peak range by up to 11dB(A) This makes a reduction of interior car noise of up to 3 - 4dB(A), possible. This means that it is only half as loud in the car as it would have been with normal tyres.
As of the autumn, the conditions of circulation are degraded, and the motorists must face various conditions of road: dryness, rain, snow or glaze. To face these varied conditions, YOKOHAMA proposes an extraordinary range of tires winter. With its 3 profiles, the range winter of continuous YOKOHAMA to develop and presents a new tire top-of-the-range winter: W.drive.
The design of the asymmetrical tread to high-rigidity gets high performances balanced on dryness, the rain or the roads snow-covered. The 3 right grooves (or 4 according to dimensions') support the drainage of water or snow, even molten, and push back the limits of aquaplaning. The paving stones have different rigidities according to their provision on the tread. More rigid on the outside of the profile, they support adherence in the turns on dryness, whereas on the interior, their flexibility take part in adherence on snow.
One of the major innovations of W.driveTM resides in the plates “3D “with a surface in polyhedron allowing of great performances on dryness, under the rain or on the snow-covered roads. The single design of the plates makes it possible the blocks of gum to be based the ones on the others, thus preserving the rigidity of the paving stones on a broader surface of contact. In parallel, this technology makes it possible to increase the density of the plates on the surface of the tread, thus multiplying the effect of blade on the snow-covered or icy roads.
The mixture of gum with its “flexible polymers “makes it possible to maintain the flexibility and flexibility thus adherence at low temperature. By integrating “micro silica “in the mixture, one improves rigidity at higher temperature. This very specific association is effective only if integration is homogeneous.
Thanks to extraordinary technology ZERUMATM, exclusive patent of YOKOHAMA, whose secrecy lies in the optimal dispersion of silica in the mixture of gum, the integration of the “micro silica “is optimal, which makes it possible to improve the behavior, motricity and braking some are the conditions of rolling and temperature.
With a broad range of 70 references of the 14 “to 19 “and series 65 to 40, W.drive makes it possible to equip the unit with the automobile park. The indices speed go T (190 km/h) with V (240 km/h) and from many dimensions profit from reinforced indices of load and/or edge of protection of rim. With W.driveTM, to face the winter season and its traps is not any more one concern. Some are the conditions of road, each driver can consider each way in a serene way.
The new “W*drive V905” maximizes the edging effect that contributes to stability on snow and ice. It also features a tread pattern that enhances the tyre’s snow and water drainage and a new compound comprising various materials, including Micro Silica and Orange Oil.
As a result, the “W*drive V905” achieves a greatly improved level of performance on snowy and wet roads, as well as on icy surfaces. In addition, a reconfiguration of the tyre’s surface contact area results in improved snow traction and drainage when running on wet roads while maintaining the conventional model’s outstanding performance on dry roads. The new compound and a lighter-weight construction contribute to lower rolling resistance and higher fuel efficiency.
