TW : 01
Drive axle tyre featuring innovative structure, compounds and tread design to provide roadholding and traction on any kind of road surface: snow, wet and dry
W Winter: products designed for use over long and medium distances under critical weather conditions (snow, rain and temperature lower than 7°C) and on snow covered surfaces
Low rolling resistance and reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
Reusable tyres, thanks to high retreadability and its recyclable highly aromatic oil free (HAOF) materials.
Lower noise emission and high acoustic comfort. Fulfils future (2012) EC Directive.
Safety and mileage in demanding winter conditions.
Thanks to this new concept of ‘winter’ tyre design, with dense and thin siping, these new lines FW:01 and TW:01 are ideal for equipment on coaches, performing excellent acoustic comfort and high mileage. This advantage is enhanced by using the combination of FW:01 on steer axle and TW:01 on drive axle.
The optimisted sequence of dence transversal siping and grooves promote snow trapping providing excellent “snow on snow” grip for better traction and statbility in case of wet and slippery surfaces
Directional tread pattern optimises grip on both wet and dry surfaces
Reduced tread block mobility limits rolling resistance, promotes fuel saving and enhances even wear
Increased tread width promotes mileage M+S marking
