Z Tyres’ SUV products offer ‘Urban Proof’ options
As sports utility (SUV) and crossover (CUV) vehicle growth continues to outpace that of the traditional family car, the demand for high quality tyres for these latest SUV/CUV models also increases. The typical 4×4 vehicle attempts to combine ride comfort and good on and off-road handling. But most modern SUVs are overwhelmingly used for journeys on road tarmac.
That’s why the Z SUV range is designed to be ‘urban proof’, according to the company. With precise handling in both wet and dry weather, Z ‘UP’ is a tyre to meet the demands of today’s discerning motorist. Displaying an attractive and efficient pattern design with a high silica tread compound, the Z SUV model not only focuses on aesthetic appeal but also offers exceptional performance capabilities.
With a current offering of 19 fitments for the latest SUVs and crossovers ranging from 215/65HR16 XL to 295/35YR21XL, the Z tyre range not only meets the latest optimum European OEM fitment requirements in terms of higher load and speed ratings (for example Y speed) but also displays strong EU tyre labelling – as would be expected for a tyre range based on the explicit needs of the continent’s drivers and vehicles.
For 2018 the Z tyre SUV and CUV range continues to expand with Z run-flat offerings to satisfy this latest tyre technology. Z has recently also introduced its first winter SUV line – a range of SUV/4×4 tyres designed for cold weather use.
