Our test tires come from my Chinese people at Sailun, who offered up the company’s Atrezzo ZS+. Prior to this story, I had never heard of Sailun before, but that isn’t a bad thing. There are so many tire brands around the world that make excellent products, and it takes people like us to spread the word for them. The ZS+ tire that we went with is part of their Ultra High Performance line and is ideal for summertime driving. We went with sizing of 255/35R18 because Moe’s Evo X is still on the stock Enkei wheels, but old man Moe swears that he’s an aggressive driver and therefore needs something a little stickier. Also, he lets a lot of people borrow his car so he wanted something that could provide a stiffer bite when it comes to braking because not all magazine editors are good drivers. Sailun uses an advanced synthetic tire rubber that ends up saving you money by lasting longer and reducing weight, which improves gas mileage. We didn’t get a chance to test the actual lifespan of the tires, but did notice a slight improvement on how far we could drive on a full tank of gas.It’s generally hard to tell if the grip level has improved an all-wheel drive car, but we could definitely feel the extra bite that the ZS+ provided on the few windy mountain roads we have access to. We also noticed that it significantly reduced road noise, which might not be good if you have a nagging spouse riding in the car with you on a regular basis.
As part of the Action Plan for Energy Efficiency was first November 2012 introduced the EU tire label . Henceforth, the motor vehicle tyres are fitted within the European Union with this indicator and inform about the fuel consumption , wet grip and noise classification of each product. For you we have compiled all relevant information.The tire label is divided into three different categories , which are measured separately.1 rolling resistanceThe rolling resistance of a tire directly influenced the fuel consumption of your vehicle. The lower the rolling resistance, the less fuel you consume. The best rating in this category is the letter "A" with the color green , while a red " G" is the weakest of censorship . The letter " D" is not used. From A to G of consumption with each letter to 100km is higher by 0.1 l .2 wet gripIn the wet adhesion, the braking distance is measured on a wet road . The rating goes from a green " A" to a red "G". However, the letter "D" and "G" are not currently in use. In the evaluation was based on a speed of 80 km / hr. From A to F with each letter of the braking distance will be longer .3 noiseWith the volume of noise is referred to , produced by the tyres when driving. Indicated is the absolute decibel value . The evaluation values ââare divided into three classes which are represented by lines to the right of the illustrated ear. The more lines are black, the louder the tyres. A continuous noise of over 80 decibels can lead to health problems.
