The lamelia profile makes a durable high grip level with snow, for ice possible and on wet road with at the same time good driving stability on dry roadway.
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G, wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
The brand Goodride stands for high quality in the lower price range and offers an excellent price-performance ratio.
The manufacturer is the Zhongce Rubber Group Co., Ltd. (ZC Rubber for short) founded in 1958, based in Hangzhou, the capital of East China’s Zhejiang province.
The company is the largest tyre producer in China and has grown in recent years to become one of the ten leading global tyre manufacturers, alongside brands such as Michelin, Continental and Bridgestone. The declared aim is to further expand their position and to increase their share of the tyre market. In order to do this, the firm invests in new production facilities, representative bodies and cooperations worldwide.
Different brands are produced in numerous plants in China and in Thailand. Tyres for cars, transportation vehicles and trucks, for agricultural, construction and commercial vehicles as well as for motorcycles and bicycles feature in ZC Rubber’s range. In addition, rubber tracks for caterpillar vehicles as well as tubes are made.
When it comes to production and production control, modern equipment from reputable manufacturers is used, and quality management is oriented around the requirements and standards of the international tyre market.
For measuring and optimising tyre noise emission, ZC Rubber established the first anechoic laboratory rooms in China. Furthermore, the company goes to great lengths with concerns such as gas recovery, steam cleaning, water purification and waste treatment for the sake of environmentally friendly production.
