Firestone launches the second generation of Multiseason, its new all-season touring tyre.
On Multiseason GEN 02 the pattern design and surface-contact area have been optimised to allow maximum water evacuation in the wet and offer a balanced level of tyre stiffness in the dry.
Tested by TÜV SÜD, the new generation of Multiseason has demonstrated 9% better braking in dry conditions and 14% in wet conditions. The tyre has also achieved the EU label grade B for wet grip. The tyre is also qualified for snow performance as certified by the 3 Peak Mountain Snow Flake (3PMSF) and M+S marking, making it compliant with all winter legislations in Europe.
Following an extensive market research involving more than 15,000 European drivers, Firestone started developing its new tyre to ensure the new generation of Multiseason would meet their demands.
Another improvement versus its predecessor, the new generation of Firestone Multiseason has achieved a good European label grade C in rolling resistance in most sizes and demonstrates a 20% improvement in mileage.
Developed and manufactured in Europe, with 50 different sizes ranging from 13” to 18” Multiseason GEN 02 cover 90% of the market dem and more than 70% for 17" wheels and more, suitable for most cars and SUVs.
