- EU Tyre Label:
MATADOR has prepared for its customers a completely new product – the all-season tyre MP 61 ADHESSA suitable for all seasons. This tyre can guide the vehicle successfully all year around in each weather. Never mind if you are driving in hot summer, rain or snow ADHESSA will always bring you safely to your destination. The harmony of treat pattern configuration and the rich lamella pattern create conditions for safe and comfortable driving in mild climatic conditions. Another advantage of ADHESSA is its maintenance-free life-long operation which reduces the tyre-replacement costs.
directional tread pattern whose configuration and lamellas are adjusted to safe driving in summer on dry and wet road and in winter on ice and snow. The driving properties on snow are improved by special tread compound with high SILICA content. A new compound which improves considerably the average lifetime of MP 61 ADHESSA in comparison with summer tyres. Advantageous economic operation – reduced costs caused by very good mileage and maintenance-free operation saving tyre-replacement and service costs.
Application of ADHESSA tyres
- ADHESSA tyres are suitable for drivers who drive on various types of roads mainly in flat lands or big industrial areas where the climatic and driving conditions change quickly and unexpectedly
- They can be also used in mild winter conditions. They are produced in a wide assortment of sizes ranging from 13“ to 17“ in the speed categories „T“ up to 190 km/h, „H“ up to 210 km/h and „V“ up to 240 km/h
MP 61 ADHESSA is characteristic for:
- Directional tread pattern whose configuration and lamellas are adjusted to safe driving in summer on dry and wet road and in winter on ice and snow
- The driving properties on snow are improved by special tread compound with high SILICA content
- A new compound which improves considerably the average lifetime of MP 61 ADHESSA in comparison with summer tyres
- Advantageous economic operation – reduced costs caused by very good mileage and maintenance-free operation saving tyre-replacement and service costs
Function of ADHESSA tread pattern
Configuration of shoulder blocks:
- optimated shape for demanding conditions of round-the-year operation
- high rigidity during the output transmission at high friction forces characteristic for dry roads
- sufficient flexibility during the output transmission at low friction forces characteristic for snowy and icy roads
Configuration of inner strips:
- It guarantees high adhesion on wet roads
- They give the tread pattern excellent steering ability and accuracy
- Their configuration and volume guarantees optimal properties on wet surface
Broad cross grooves:
- They lead away water from the track effectively and reduce the danger of aquaplaning
- They enable gripping on snow and slush thus providing similar gripping as special winter tyres
- Similarly as with winter tread pattern it increases the gripping and braking properties in winter conditions, especially on icy surface
- A big amount of additional contact edges increases the adhesion on wet surface and gives a feeling of better safety and steering ability of the vehicle
- It contributes to quiet rolling of the tyre and reduced noise
New generation of lamellas:
- It locks the indented tread pattern blocks in all directions thus increasing their rigidity and effectiveness in marginal conditions of maximum engine output transfer on dry and wet road
- It increases stability and keeps the track also at high speeds
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.
