Matador MP 71 Izzarda
In 2003 Matador embarks on the road of producing the dynamically developing tyres for sport utility vehicles (SUV) with 4x4 drive for road and cross-country driving. The first Matador product in this market segment is the new SUV tyre MP 71 IZZARDA 4x4 A/T which will certainly please owners of SUV vehicles. MP 71 IZZARDA is especially recommended for owners of SUV vehicles who expect balanced utility and driving characteristics on various road surfaces: dusty roads, asphalt, concrete, snow, ice, sand.
The MP 71 IZZARDA 4x4 A/T tyres are now being produced in two 16? pilot sizes in the speed category ?T? up to 190 km/h.
MP 71 IZZARDA 4x4 A/T secures a balanced output in road and cross-country driving. It is characteristic for:
- improved output on dusty and gravel surface;
-high rigidity of tread pattern;
-low noise level and excellent gripping properties on wet and dry surface;
-excellent design with inverse sidewall appearance and inscription set off in color.
In the development of MP 71 IZZARDA the latest available research knowledge was used. The tyre consists of two bearing carcass plies, two steel cord breakers, a third spirally wound breaker and a reinforced sidewall. The tyre profile is optimized for equal distribution of the specific pressure in the track (which results in equal tread wear, good mileage and high safety of driving on various road surfaces). In the bead area there is a wound wire and the carcass plies are fixed by means of a rubber filler. A new system of rubberizing the carcass plies and breakers was used. A reinforced construction of the sidewall with inverse appearance was used. The shoulder, sidewall and bead are equipped along the circumference with rubber projections serving as a protection against piercing when driving off road and under more difficult conditions.
