Feel the comfortable driving while caring for the environment
N Blue Eco is an eco-friendly performance tire with excellent wet handling and braking performance providing outstanding driving stability on wet roads. Optimized tread contact patch provides uniform distribution of contact pressure, resulting in a longer tread life. Well positioned grooves and extra-thin sipes reduce braking distances and secure high braking performance on wet roads. Continuous 3 center ribs with optimal block distribution help directional driving stability at high speed. Various shapes of sipe provide a comfort driving by absorbing the vibration from various road surfaces.
N Blue Eco’s green technologies give more functional value to tire performance.
Excellent energy saving
NBlue Eco combines green technologies including LRR full silica compound and construction design to reduce the tire's rolling resistance resulting in good energy efficiency.
Improved wet performance
The application of highly dispersible silica compound maximizes wet grip performance.
Low noise for high comfort
Computer optimized asymmetric tread pattern and random variable pitch blocks reduce noise generation, resulting in a quiet and comfortable ride.
Reduced Rolling Resistance
Low rolling resistance silica compound and cavity profile provide lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions improving fuel efficiency to create energy savings.
Enhanced Wet Performance
Optimized four wide grooves help realize outstanding water removal while the asymmetric pattern delivers improved hydroplaning and excellent grip performance on wet road surfaces.
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.
