Car Maker Specific Tyre Markings

       

Some (mainly high performance)  tyres have specific markings which show that the tyre has been developed to provide optimum performance on models from certain vehicle manufacturers.

Tyres with these specific markings are made differently from the equivalent standard tyres. These tyres are not better or worse than the equivalent standard tyre, but they differ in the way they behave on the car. These markings can be found on the sidewall of the tyre, and also on new tyre labels.

Original Specific Manuafacturer Tyres with pecial markings are developed in close collaboration of vehicle manuafacturers with  leading tyre manufacturers, subjected to comprehensive tests and prove their mettle under stringent conditions.
