Full Tyre Description

Black on white - the price is right. For compact-, middle-, and upper-class vehicles and SUVs. Good grip in snow. Barum offers affordable long lasting performance Optimised setting-off and braking in snow Fits perfectly for example to Volkswagen Golf, Opel Astra and Ford Focus The Polaris 3 is the ideal tire for economical drivers since its low wear ensures a high mileage performance and its low rolling resistance results in reduced fuel consumption. ‘Snow catchers‘ in the tread keep the snow in the groove, making it possible for the Polaris 3 to transfer the power of the engine to the snowy slopes when accelerating and provides an excellent braking performance. Technical details: Low rolling resistance, resulting in reduced fuel consumption Improved handling in the wet Optimised setting-off and braking in snow Low wear means highmileage performance Optimised setting-off and braking in snow."Snow catchers" keep the snow in the grooves, optimise start-up on snowy roads and enable controlled braking. Low rolling resistance and reduced fuel consumption.An extra groove in the shoulder block minimises rolling resistance and therefore also fuel consumption. Low wear means high mileage performance.Sipes of different depths, arranged obliquely to the block edge, ensure low tyre wear. This increases durability and cost efficiency.
