Mew sets stan­dard when snowed un­der

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Prestige -

Gam­bold says tyres de­vel­oped at the re­search cen­tre have led to de­vel­op­ments in­clud­ing the stud­less snow tyre. More re­cently, at BMW’s in­sti­ga­tion, it has de­vel­oped a stud-less and run-flat snow tyre now made by Hankook and Pirelli.

Gam­bold says 95 per cent of the world’s ve­hi­cles are sold in the north­ern hemi­sphere, where there are long, hard win­ters.

‘‘We get 30 com­pa­nies at the prov­ing ground each year, with 500 en­gi­neers and we test 3000 tyres,’’ he says.
