Semperit, a tire brand of Austrian origin, expanded its range with all-season tires designed for passenger cars and minivans: AllSeason Grip and Van AllSeason respectively. Both new models offer well-balanced performance in any time of the year.
The Semperit AllSeason-Grip model is manufactured in 30 sizes with fitting diameters ranging from 13 to 17 inches. The tire can be fitted on both midsize and compact passenger cars, and small-sized SUVs. The commercial tire model Semperit Van-AllSeason is available in 13 sizes with fitting diameters ranging from 15 to 16 inches.
The directional pattern of the AllSeason-Grip was specially designed to ensure a high level of driving safety in warm and cold seasons. On dry surfaces, the stable geometry of its blocks serves to reduce the stopping distance, improve maneuverability, and enhance the precision of the steering response. The V-shaped profile ensures quick evacuation of water from the contact area.
The model is equipped with tread wear indicators that show the minimum legal tread depth of 1.6 mm. At the same time, extra safety is ensured by an extra «snowflake» tread wear indicator. This extra tread wear indicator will let the motorist know when the Semperit AllSeason Grip tread depth reaches 4 mm — the Austrian minimum legal tread depth for specialized winter tires.
The Van AllSeason tread pattern in designed in such a way as to ensure a high level of ground adhesion in any weather conditions. For example, the wide zigzagging lamellas ensure a good grip and short stopping distance on snow and ice. In the summer weather conditions, the driving safety is ensured by the large shoulder areas and the central tread blocks, linked to them. And on wet pavement the water is quickly dispelled from the contact area due to wide drainage grooves.
For better fuel efficiency of Semperit Van-AllSeason, a new tread compound was developed, which solved the conflict of goals between low rolling resistance, long tread life, and capability to be used all year round.
We will remind you at this point that for the summer season 2020 this subsidiary brand of Continental prepared a new UHP model Semperit Speed-Life 3.
