Car manufacturers are used to developing new models to answer drivers’ needs. In the same way, tires must be adapted to the specific features of each car in order to respond drivers’ needs and get the best performance in every condition.
Cars are different. They have different weights and specific configurations. For example, different engine positions (front, rear or centre) modify the weight distribution and consequently the tire’s impact on the road and the car dynamics, requiring a dedicated optimization of the tread.
Control systems, like ABS, EPC and TPMS, are based on original equipment tire characteristics. Indeed, only marked tires can guarantee compliance with the car manufacturer’s requirements, avoiding any possible risk associated with the malfunction of electronic systems. Only a tire with high dimensional accuracy can guarantee the perfect function of all components in the latest vehicle generation (all-wheel drive, hybrid systems, driving aids).
A synergic cooperation with top car manufacturers to suit the dynamic personality of each car model. To provide the best in terms of comfort and handling or simply in terms of overall balance and performance.
The creation of a base tire with a perfect interaction between advanced design activities and unique craftsmanship capabilities. Development through several tests: handling in both dry and wet conditions, aquaplaning behavior, winter performance, rolling resistance, integrity and high speed.
To ensure the high test standard of the product's quality, dedicated technologies, processes and materials are at the forefront of high performance tire manufacturing.
Original Equipment marked tires, introduced together with Porsche in the 1980s, are now requested by all top car manufacturers to help customers in finding the right tire for their car.
