ZC Rubber has received the TÜV SÜD test mark for its new Westlake ZuperAce Z-007 passenger car tyre.
TÜV SÜD, the internationally renowned testing organisation, conducted a test at ZC Rubber’s request in March and April 2022.
The German TÜV SÜD test mark stands for very high quality and safety standards. The extensive project encompassed all standard tests on wet and dry roads, including aquaplaning in straight line, wet braking, wet handling, dry braking, dry handling, rolling resistance, rolling noise, and highspeed test.
The Westlake ZuperAce Z-007 exceeded all the TÜV limit criteria set by its main competitors’ test results, demonstrating impressive performance, especially in wet performance and noise level.
The Westlake ZuperAce Z-007 outperforms the limit value by eight per cent in wet grip and braking performance and seven per cent in straight-line aquaplaning, showing good control and precision on wet surfaces.
It is also significantly superior in terms of rolling noise, with a noise performance that is 10 per cent higher than the limit value.
Compared with its predecessor, the Westlake ZuperAce Z-007 offers a higher level of balance in comfort, grip, and handling, according to ZC Rubber.
The Westlake ZuperAce Z-007 is now available in a range of 17- 22 inch sizes for the European market.
