The Bravuris 3HM delivers what the affix 'HM' promises: High Mileage!
Thanks to minimal wear you can be sure to go further - with regard to mileage as well as superb driving comfort.
The Bravuris 3HM is a well-balanced tire that perfectly combines greater mileage with confident handling in all driving situations, offering extraordinary value for money.
- Higher mileage due to reduced wear rate, even wear shape and reduced friction energy
- Precise handling and safe driving on winding roads
- Good directional stability
- Short wet braking distances
Precise handling and good directional stability on winding roads.
The high lateral stiffness due to closed shoulders with macroblocks lead to a superb transmission of lateral forces at minor steering angles. The effect of excellent handling on winding roads is complemented by intermediate ribs which guarantee good directional stability.
Short wet braking distances.
The large number of gripping edges provided by sipes and the high number of pitches improve the contact with the road surface. The state of the art tread compound also guarantees optimum adhesion and short stopping distances on wet road surfaces.
The wide, flat contour and a high number of pitches and sipes evenly distribute the pressure. The block deformation in the ground contact area is thereby reduced and the wear is low, which increases the mileage.
Feature: A wide, flat contour with a large number of pitches and sipes
Effect: Even pressure distribution and reduced block deformation on the ground contact area
Benefit: Higher mileage thanks to reduced and even wear
Feature: High lateral stiffness thanks to closed shoulders with macro-blocks
Effect: Wide center and intermediate ribs support the transference of side forces at narrow wheel angles
Benefit: Precise handling and good directional stability on winding roads
Feature: Improved road surface contact thanks to a high number of grip edges due to sipes and a high pitch count number
Effect: State-of-the-art compound guarantees an improved grip on wet surfaces
Benefit: Short wet braking distances
Surface phase increases rigidity and improves handling
Wide groove structure allows high water absorption and improved wet handling
Finned body improves wet braking because gripping edges interact with the road surface
Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.
Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.
We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.
Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

The classification in terms of fuel efficiency is divided into seven classes, from the A-class (the highest) to G-class (the
lowest). A tyre in the A-class consumes 0.1 litres less at 100km than a tyre in the B-class. An essential component for fuel
efficiency is the rolling resistance or rolling friction.
Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.
Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.
It shows how efficient the vehicle can brake on wet roads. Wet grip is an important feature especially with summer tyres.
Class A has the highest safety and the shortest braking distances. Class F has low security and the longest braking distance.
The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.
Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.
The symbol indicates the external rolling noise in decibels and as a 3 class sound wave symbol to clarify whether the tire can
keep the recommended level. External rolling noise does not correspond to tyre noise inside the compartment.
A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.
