ZC Rubber (Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co., Ltd) has introduced an upgraded version of its SV308 summer tyre.
Called the SA57, the new product is available in 33 passenger car and nine SUV sizes, and is said to offer a ten per cent shorter wet braking distance than the previous generation tyre, along with five per cent improved wet handling, three per cent better dry handling, three per cent less noise and two per cent less rolling resistance.
“The new tyre features excellent performance on the handling and water drainage to keep safe on the road,” comments ZC Rubber. The SA57 features a directional, v-shaped tread with four broad circumferential grooves for evacuating water from the contact area. The centre ribs are said to provide good steering precision, and ZC Rubber notes that the silica-based compound enhances wet and dry grip.
