Noise Efficient, Quiet, Low Noise Tyres
Noise is an unavoidable consequence of modern car ownership. Even with the features and safety measures available to drivers today, road noise continues to be a prevalent problem. The continuous stream of research on new ways to reduce road noise has resulted in a host of different solutions from tyre manufacturers. The following article discusses what you need to know about noise-efficient silent tyres and how they can help reduce your car’s road noise issues.
What is a noise efficient tyre?
The primary difference between a noise-efficient tyre and other types of tyres is the rubber compound used in their construction. The rubber in noise-efficient tyres is made to be more noise-absorbent than other tyre compounds, resulting in a reduction of road noise as the car travels. Noise-efficient tyres also come with a variety of other advantages, including better grip, lower fuel consumption, longer lifespan, and better suspension performance. As with all types of tyres, noise-efficient tyres are available in multiple designs and sizes, allowing you to find the model that best meets your specific needs. These tyres are especially useful for those who drive on a daily basis or spend a significant amount of time on the road, as they can significantly reduce the amount of road noise in your car.
EU Tyre Label: Exterior Noise Emissions
All tyres since 2012, come with a tyre label. The tyre label is important as it helps decipher three important characteristics that you should be aware of when purchasing new tyre. Fuel Efficiency, Wet Grip and External Rolling Noise Class and Level are all prominent on an EU Tyre Label. External Rolling Noise Class and Level monitors external noise emissions and the noise class is graded from A-C. The noise level shows the external noise measured in decibels.
If you look at the example EU Tyre Label below. You will see that this particular tyre is rated ‘B’ for the External Rolling Noise Class and 70 DB for the external noise level. The higher the class and the lower the level, the quieter your tyres will be.
Why are Tyres Important for Reducing Road Noise?
The rubber compound of the tyres is responsible for the majority of road noise originating from your car. Although there are many different methods for reducing road noise, none are as effective as switching to tyres designed for low noise. The rubber compound used in noise-efficient tyres is made with grooves that help reduce vibration and decrease the amount of noise that the tyres produce. The resulting reduction in noise from using noise-efficient tyres can lead to many different benefits, including increased driver comfort, improved quality of life for surrounding residents, and better fuel efficiency.
What are the different types of Noise Efficient Tyres?
A number of the world’s most prestigious premium tyre manufacturers such as Continental and Pirelli have invested a large amount of R&D in to creating the best noise efficient tyres available. Using advanced tyre technology, Continental have created Continental ContiSilent tyres, aimed at dramatically reducing noise levels both internally and externally. Pirelli use their very own ‘Pirelli Noise Cancelling System’ to greatly enhance driver comfort.
