The efficiency class label evaluated based on customer preferences.
Delticom centralized survey results from more than 40.000 customers from 15 European countries and created this index.

Nexen N Fera RU1
235/50 R19 99V 4PR RPB
- EU Tyre Label:
Nexen N Fera RU1 - Fantastic Driving
With a fantastic ride and superb steering, your driving experience will be raised to the next level.
Superb driving experience
As a premium tire fitted out with new technologies for the best SUV driving experience, NFera RU1 provides superb handling and grip.
4G optimized compound technology delivers an optimized tread grip on both wet and dry surfaces.
Improved block stiffness and balanced constuction provides excellent handling and steering stability.
Ride Comfort & Long mileage
Special tread compound, flexible sidewall and optimized asymmetric pattern design delivers a refreshing ride comfort and long mileage.
Three Wide Grooves
Three wide grooves on the in-side part that wields great influence upon the driving performance in the rain are applied to improve hydro/wet performance.
One Narrow Groove
One narrow groove on out-side is applied to increase the block stiffness and thereby improve handling and steering stability during cornering.
Optimized Out/In Rib Balance
Optimized out/in rib balance delivers the best stability during high-speed driving.
Silent sipes disperse noise from high stiffness block and consequently, have a very low noise output.
Wet Grip and Dry Handling with Perfect Balance and Stability
N'Fera RU1's excellent wet braking performance is achieved with POS & HES technology. Optimal contact patch on road surface is realized by POS & FOS technology delivering best-in-class dry handling performance.
POS: Tire Profile Optimization System.
HES: Hydro Evacuation Simulation.
FOS: Footprint Optimum-shape Simulation.
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.
