ZC Rubber

ZC Rubber has announced plans to add 68 new sizes of its Z-series winter tyres, All Elite Season Z-401, Zupersnow Z-507, and ICEMASTER Spike Z-506, for the European market in the coming sales season of 2020.

ZC Rubber Extends Z-Series

The new sizes aim to meet the diverse demand of the European customers, who are constantly confronted with the rain and snow weather and who need to stay mobile in all weather and road conditions.

ZC Rubber launched three Z-series winter tyre products in Europe last year, the four-season tyre Z-401, the winter tyre Z-507, and the studded winter tyre Z-506, which have gained great popularity with sales exceeding expectations.

“So this year, to better serve European customers, we have upgraded the technology and improved the tyre performance in all aspects, and will introduce new sizes, which are already in production and are expected to be available in the second half of 2020," ZC Rubber stated.

The product line now includes 142 sizes covering 13 to 19 inches in rim diameter, with much improved wet grip and lower rolling resistance. According to a test report conducted by Test World on March 9 this year, the series has improved by at least 20% in snow performance, with Z-506 making a great step forward in snow and ice performance.

The Z-401 is a four-season tyre specially designed for the European market. Its single-oriented pattern design guarantees both snow and summer performance. Furthermore, the Z-507 is a high-performance winter tyre for Central Europe. The asymmetric pattern design and special compound provide handling on the snow surface. To complete the range the Z-506 is a studded winter tyre for the Nordic and Russian markets, is designed by the Finnish team to ensure snow and ice performance.
