New summer tires Cordiant Comfort 2 “Behind the wheel” felt warm on the roads of Portugal. The addition of acoustic comfort can boast of new tyres from a Russian manufacturer?
Thirty years ago, the crew of the magazine “Behind the wheel” consisting of Oleg Bogdanov, Victor Panaraga and Vladimir Solovyov made for a record 45 hours “non-stop” run from Moscow to Lisbon for a serial VAZ “nine”. Then it shod in Michelin deficit — domestic tyres could not withstand a long movement on high speeds. I traveled to Portugal for the crossover Mercedes-Benz GLC 250d, which dispatched pre-series summer tires Cordiant Comfort 2 SUV 235/65 R17 Yaroslavl production.
To supply our tyres at a prestigious foreign car? Why not? Have Kordianta 85 years of experience, powerful scientific-technical center, advanced technology, imported equipment and materials. Factories in Yaroslavl and Omsk annually produce five million passenger tire, they put in 50 countries. Tests carried out on international grounds, among which the Test World in Finland and the IADA in Spain. Cordiant, the leader in sales of winter tyres in Russia and wants to become a leader in “the fly”. For this and created a tires, Comfort 2, which has replaced the flagship model of the Sport 3.
The asymmetric tread pattern is a combination of a dozen different items (three times more than in the previous-generation tire). Diagonal micromanage create
additional micropowered, streamlined air flow, reducing the sound resonance.The asymmetric tread pattern is a combination of a dozen different items (three times more than in the previous-generation tire). Diagonal micromanage create

Market research showed that Russians expect from the tires in the first place of comfort. In other words, in priority to the smoothness and low noise level, and then there are the resource, promotion of fuel economy, resistance to aquaplaning, braking properties and the effect on handling.
To reduce noise, designers used the asymmetric tread pattern of the twelve interleaved blocks, experimentally picked the best form of cuts in its Central part. And achieved that external noise was 71 dB. The best indicator for this option of competing tires Bridgestone Turanza T001 — 69 dB.
Sidewall to improve the ride is made more elastic, lightweight cord, the load index remained the same. Not to hurt handling, the increased stiffness of the outer part of the tread. In the mixture increased the content of silica (silicon dioxide), which allowed to reduce rolling resistance and enhance fuel efficiency.

Argue that the need for new tyres is about 97 000 km: developers hitting 30,000 miles on the roads of the Yaroslavl region and calculated the mileage the wear. Most likely, in real life the figure is more modest, but the application is still serious.
In the spring the stores will be tires Cordiant Comfort 2 most popular sizes, and the end of the year promises a full range of diameter from 13 to 18 inches. On prices still silent, but obviously, the novelty will be more expensive models Sport 3.
I think if the mileage Moscow — Lisbon would now, it is possible that in the list considering footwear would have been, and tires Cordiant Comfort 2.
