Re: Have Ever Heard Of This Tyre

Well, I couldnt find much on them. They are made by Pneumant, which appears to be german but I cant confirm yet.

PN 950 Tritec

Auto Motor und Sport - 6/2002

Comparative Strengths - Braking and Cornering in Dry, Straight Aquaplaning

Comparative Weaknesses - Sterring Precision, Wet Braking, Noise

From what buyer stats I can see the tyre seems pretty good...for larger cars. On smaller cars they were not impressed. Overall it looks like a decent tyre but since every review is in german it's hard to say.

Re: Have Ever Heard Of This Tyre

I'm wondering how "Straight Aquaplaning" can be a strength?

Re: Have Ever Heard Of This Tyre

hehehe, I thought the same thing. Seeinag as it was all in German I'm guessing they mead it doesnt aquaplane. Thats all I can think of. The tread design looks very similar to my Dunlop 3000a's and they are exceptional for wet weather handling except heavy breaking. At a guess they look like they would be on a par with the 3000a's.
