Summer tyres need to perform two distinct functions;
On dry roads, they must be able to cope with high driving speeds without bursting,
On wet roads, they must have a good grip to avoid aquaplaning and to reduce braking distances.
Specially engineered for upmarket or sports cars, the Summerstar 3+ Sport tyre meets these requirements. It is comparable to the tyres designed by the largest European manufacturers.
Performance of our Point S summer tyre for high-end cars:
The tyre tread design (or pattern) is a decisive factor in determining the quality of a tyre. The more technical the tread, the higher performance the tyre will achieve.
The Summerstar 3+ Sport has been specially designed to this end.
The optimised groove ratio and the stiffness of its block allows reduced noise levels and improved braking capability. Its tread compound provides very good grip and reduced rolling resistance.
Like all the tyres in the Point S range, Summerstar tyres are certified by the European tyre label. You will find all the details regarding performance listed by tyre size in the range table below.
In addition to the criteria implemented by the European Union, the engineers who were involved in the development of the Summerstar tyre have also considered a variety of factors - dry braking performance, exterior and interior tyre noise, as well as optimised longevity and fuel efficiency – in order to provide enhanced comfort and safety.
