ZC Rubber has launched its new Westlake and Goodride flagship ultra-high performance passenger car tyres for the European market at Tire Cologne 2022.
ZC Rubber Introduces New Products in Tire Cologne 2022
The Westlake ZuperAce Z-007 and Goodride Solmax 1 deliver enhanced quietness, grip, and handling performance with an all-around tyre structure upgrade with core technologies from ZC Rubber. ZC Rubber said BPOT technology and Hybrid Formula are the two leading technologies. BPOT technology significantly improves a tyre's high-speed performance, shoulder durability and wear resistance. Hybrid Formula technology optimises the distribution of Nano-Silica for improved grip and fuel efficiency while allowing for faster water drainage, resulting in the two tyres superb wet performance.
The Westlake ZuperAce Z-007 is a UHP tyre with strong overall performance. With its innovative technological advances, the Z-007 outperforms the previous generation of UHP products in every way. It features large continuous blocks and scaled grooves with beveled edges for improved handling and grip performance. Coupled with the use of Hybrid Formula, the tyre's wet braking distance has been reduced by 10 per cent. It also offers a 5 per cent reduction in rolling resistance with a redesigned tyre profile based on ZC Rubber’s updated design theory. In addition, the 24 Soundbolt Arrays significantly minimise its interior noise levels for maximum comfort.
As the flagship tyre that combines sporty and dynamic driving performance, the Goodride Solmax 1 adopted a variable-pitch noise-reduction block design, V-shape soundbolts inside grooves, and a staggered arrangement of inner and outer lateral grooves. The simple yet aggressive tread design ensures a larger contact patch area when cornering, which enhance wet drainage performance. The Hybrid Formula ensures that the tyre maintains stable handling at high speeds, resulting in a more comfortable driving experience for consumers.
The two new flagship tyres have been certified by the independent institute TÜV SÜD. They were awarded the TÜV SÜD Mark certification at this Tire Cologne. The Westlake ZuperAce Z-007 and Goodride Solmax 1 will be available in a range of 17"- 22’’ sizes for the European market starting in June 2022. Both tyres will be fully introduced throughout Europe and Southeast Asia in the second half of 2022.
