Manufacturer: Barum
Tyre: Barum Brillantis 2 XL


The Barum Brillantis 2 XL tyres are the reinforced load version of the company’s revolutionary compact car tyre. Fuel costs are also reduced due to the high mileage characteristics and long life.

Wet grip: The grooves and the sipes provide excellent wet traction; which implies wet grip and safety. There is efficient water deflection which reduces the risk of aquaplaning significantly.
Dry handling: The outer shoulders of the tyres are reinforced with stiffer tread blocks called lugs. The lugs improve the dry handling characteristics and enhance the steering responsiveness. This enables precise control over the car on all surfaces at high speeds.
Braking response: On wet and dry surfaces there is superior braking responsiveness due to the excellent traction they offer. The tyres also significantly reduce stopping distances.

These tyres are fitted to a small rear wheel drive van that is somewhat unstable at the best of times.Have tried other brands of tyre but thse Barum seem to suit the vehicle best and give good mileage against the type of useage.
