New tire maker Davanti recently put two of its most popular tires through their paces at IDIADA in Spain.

The DX390 and DX640 were tested for their performance capabilities in the following areas: dry braking, dry handling, wet braking (on asphalt with ABS), longitudinal aquaplaning and wet handling.The testing of all Davanti tires for their EU label grading has been carried out by IDIADA prior to being sold in the UK.

Peter Cross, Davanti general manager, said, “We put our tires through rigorous test regimes to ensure they deliver safe and predictable handling and a comfortable drive. Our tires allow the driver to get the most out of their vehicle’s performance capabilities, and therefore deliver excellent value for money to users.”

The company has also launched two new products on the UK market, the DX240 and DX740. The DX240 is designed for smaller passenger cars with 13-14in fitments and is said to provide exceptional wet and dry grip with high levels of straight line and cornering traction.

Meanwhile the DX740, which is designed for SUVs, is said to offer high levels of fuel efficiency and low noise, as well as an optimum balance of wet and dry grip, and a smooth and comfortable drive.
