01

DIFFERENT KIND OF CONFIGURATIONS

Car manufacturers are used to developing new models to answer drivers’ needs. In the same way, tyres must be adapted to the specific features of each car in order to respond to drivers’ needs and get the best performance in every condition.
02

WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION

Every car is different. They have different weights and specific configurations. Different engine positions modify the weight distribution and consequently the tyre’s impact on the road and the car dynamics, requiring a dedicated optimisation of the tread.
03

SYSTEM AND ELECTRONICS

Control systems, like ABS, EPC and TPMS, are based on original equipment tyre characteristics. Marked tyres can guarantee compliance with the car manufacturer’s requirements, avoiding any possible risk associated with the malfunction of electronic systems. Moreover, only a tyre with high dimensional accuracy can guarantee the perfect function of all components in the latest vehicle generation (all-wheel drive, hybrid systems, driving aids).

HOMOLOGATION

DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
01

CO-DESIGN 2 - 3 MONTHS

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.

02

PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT 2 - 3 YEARS

The creation of a base tyre with a perfect interaction between advanced design activities and unique craftsmanship capabilities. Development through several tests: handling in both dry and wet conditions, aquaplaning behaviour, winter performance, rolling resistance, integrity and high speed.

03

TYRE INDUSTRIALISATION 2 - 6 MONTHS

To ensure the high test standard of the product's quality, dedicated technologies, processes and materials are at the forefront of high performance tyre manufacturing.

MARKING

ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT MARKING

Original Equipment marked tyres, initially developed in synergy with Porsche in the 1980s, are now requested by all top car manufacturers to ensure the perfect tyre for every customer
