ZC Rubber: IDIADA tests ‘strong’

Compared with other international tyres, ZC Rubber reports that its Goodride Sport SA-37 has “obvious advantages”, especially in terms of wet braking test and with relation to the 225/45 R17 size.

ZC Rubber, the largest domestic Chinese tyre manufacturer, cites IDIADA data in support of its claims. The test in question was, of course, held at IDIADA (L’Albomar) and included five rounds total every tyre with temperatures of 13.4 degrees Celsius. The test speed was between 80 kilometres per hour and 5 kilometres per hour.

Five different international brands were chosen for the test, including Zhongce Goodride Sport SA-37 and Michelin Primacy.

According to ZC Rubber, the objective of this project is to perform stopping distance evaluation performance in wet condition on four different tyre sizes: 225/45 R17 94W; 205/55 R16 91V; 185/65 R15 88H; and 185/65R14 86H.

The results reportedly show that the average stopping distance of Goodride-branded 225/45 R17 tyres was 29.5m, which is one of the best tyres in the test besides Michelin, which achieved 28.3m.
