2012 saw the European-wide introduction of Tyre Labeling legislation for all new tyres produced for the market. This information provides consumers with valuable assistance when deciding which product may best suit their driving style, climate and particular vehicle. Key areas of focus are: wet braking efficiency, rolling resistance (fuel efficiency) and external noise output in decibels.
ContiSilent™ helps reduce interior vehicle noise up to 9 dB(A), depending on the type of vehicle, its speed and the road surface. At the moment it is only available for summer tyres and is compatible with all commonly available rims. Driving performance is not affected and there is no negative influence on mileage and load/speed capability. Fitting on four positions is recommended."
Further brands are reacting to the market too. Falken have introduced a similar technology with their 'Silent Core' system. A product which is claimed to last the life of the tyre and offer up to 4db reduction in internal noise pollution through its innovative double-humped foam layer within the tyre carcass.
