The tyres will have a rating for fuel efficiency from A – G; A-rated tyres being the most fuel efficient and G-rated tyres being the least fuel efficient.
Choosing more fuel efficient tyres not only lowers the cost of driving as you use less fuel, but also reduces Carbon Dioxide emissions which in turn helps the environment.
By choosing to fit A-rated tyres over G-rated tyres, you will save an average of 7.5% in fuel a year. (Please note D ratings are not used).
The second area rated by the new tyre label is wet braking distances e.g. how long it takes a tyre to stop when braking in wet weather. Tyres are rated from A – F (D and G ratings are not used).
Choosing A-rated tyres over F-rated tyres could reduce wet braking distances by up to 18 metres.
The final rating is external noise emissions. This is not the noise heard by the driver, but external noise made by the tyre.
This is measured in decibels (dB) and is indicated by one, two or three black waves on the label; with one wave being the quietest to three waves being the loudest. So the more black waves, the louder the tyre.
The Bridgestone T001 tyre is a summer tyre which offers excellent all round performance. The Bridgestone T001 tyres perform exceptionally well in the following areas of performance, safety, and comfort. Fuel efficiency is improved which leads to cost benefits due to the reduced irregular wear characteristics of the tyre.
Excellent handling characteristics: The Bridgestone T001 tyres exhibit an advanced tread design that maximises handling characteristics on wet and dry surfaces. The innovative tread compound ensures greater stiffness to the shoulder blocks. This enhances the contact patch which results in even and more precise handling.
Improved fuel efficiency: The NanoPro-Tec technology used by Bridgestone reduces friction between the carbon molecules in the tread compound. This results in the rolling resistance being reduced. Overall, this results in improved fuel efficiency, making these tyres an excellent value for money proposition.
Fantastic safety levels: The Bridgestone T001 tyre tread incorporates multiple ribs with wide grooves. These grooves efficiently evacuate water from the contact patch and reduce the risk of aquaplaning in wet conditions.
Improved ride quality: Comfort levels have been improved due to a reduction in noise levels. You can be assured of a comfortable driving experience, no matter how difficult the weather conditions or road surface.
