How Davanti Tyres are tested beyond the limits
Davanti Tyres are put through extensive testing. With the highest level of engineering and manufacturing. The advance testing measures make sure that the tyres are at the best standard for the best road handling and safety that there is. So how are the tyres tested?
Per set of tyres 20,000km is travelled. Throughout this process the tyres tread wear are regularly checked so that we can evaluate the rate of which the tyre life is at.
To test the tyres in this way, the vehicle shall be driven at high speeds followed by firmly pressing the brakes. We can then see the distance covered using GPS equipment so evaluate your tyres efficiency.
Working in a similar process to dry braking, the vehicle is driven at high speeds followed by applying the brakes but in wet conditions. Ince again the distance I measured by specialist GPS equipment.
Testing Davanti Tyres in dry handling involves assessments such as how the car rides, stability, steering and noise. These tests are done at high speeds over different road surfaces. Here we are looking to evaluate how the tyres adapt and handle in changes of pace and road.
At high speeds, the vehicle is given a wet circuit to complete. The test ultimate goal is to test the amount of control the driver has, and also to evaluate the control and handling the car provides.
This test is done in extreme cold conditions to follow characteristics including; braking stability, control, transit stability and brake-in-turn.
In order to measure ice braking, acceleration takes place followed by braking onto the ice (something that can be very dreaded in the winter months). The distance it takes is then measured which can give us an indication how how safe the braking of the vehicle can be.
Using extreme weather once again, the vehicle drives at an average speed of 45km/h followed by applying the brakes. The distance taken to stop is then recorded so the tyres effectiveness in the snow can be evaluated.
The tyres are tested here by using a hill of sand, the maximum distance the vehicle can achieve is recorded alongside the time it took to do so.
The tyres are tested when towing a weighted trailer. From this stage the car must travel up to 40mph and data logging equipment that can measure the distance the vehicle needs to accelerate to the 40mph.
Once again the tyres are tested by travelling then braking, with distance measured. A hard packed gravel surface is used here and speeds best for testing are around 50km/h.
