Safe, economical winter tyres from Barum

Safe, economical winter tyres from Barum

Hanover, September 2007. The Barum Polaris 2 all-round winter tyre combines good driving performance in snow and ice, plus safe characteristics on cold, wet road surfaces, with an attractive price-/performance ratio. The size range has moreover been extended for the coming winter, which means that a large number of cars can be switched to this economical, dedicated winter tyre. The Polaris 2 is approved for speeds of up to 240 km/h (150 mph) and is available from specialist tyre dealers for fitting on rims up to 17".

The Barum range also features the SnoVanis, a safe, high-mileage winter tyre for MPVs and light vans. This tyre is available in sizes between 14" and 16".

The Barum Polaris 2 - approved for speeds up to 240 km/h (150 mph)
The tread pattern on the Polaris 2 features stepped and wave-shaped sipes and thus provides good grip and lateral guidance on snow-covered or icy roads. When driving in the rain, the deep, circumferential tread grooves pick up the water and channel it out to the sides. This makes the Barum Polaris 2 a safe winter tyre - at an attractive price. With its Polaris 2 V version, the Barum range now includes winter tyres approved for speeds up to 240 km/h (150 mph). What distinguishes this version from the standard tyre is its reinforced sipe tie bars in the shoulder lugs and the larger raised sipe sections in the lug centre. The modern silica compound used on all Barum Polaris 2 winter tyres also means lower rolling resistance. All in all, these features make the Barum Polaris 2 V a safe and attractively-priced tyre for winter use.

The SnoVanis

Safe driving characteristics on roads in winter coupled with high mileage performance - these are the main characteristics of the attractively-priced SnoVanis. Dense sipes improve traction in snow and ice, whilst the wide circumferential grooves swiftly disperse slush and water. The low noise level achieved through the computer-optimised tread lug arrangement means a comfortable driving performance. High tread stiffness ensures optimum driving stability. Offset central tread ribs and the flat contour reduce tyre wear, thereby increasing mileage performance.
