Brillantis 2 from Barum
New safe and economical tyre for compact cars now available
The Brillantis 2 is the new tyre put on the market 2010 for small and compact cars from budget brand Barum. In this context the engineers at Barum were the first to use the asymmetrical tread pattern concept - where the right and left side of the tyre differ in their layout - on a tyre destined for compact cars. As a result, they were able to reduce braking distances by up to 3%, as well as enhancing characteristics in the wet. Driving comfort also benefited from the new design. Making the tyre's ground contact patch even more uniform in its structure has improved mileage performance by over 10%, compared with the tyre's predecessor. The new Brillantis 2 is now available from tyre dealers in 13" to 15" sizes, approved for speeds of up to 210 km/h (131 mph).
