SAFETY: WRITTEN IN THE STARS.
All MINI Original Complete Wheels are fitted exclusively with star marked tyres. These tyres have been developed in close collaboration with leading tyre manufacturers like Bridgestone, Dunlop, Goodyear and Pirelli, and are ideally matched to the vehicle concept of each individual MINI model.
THE BENEFITS AT A GLANCE.
Matching of tyres is performed at an early phase of vehicle development
Each tyre has passed stringent testing with up to 50 different quality criteria (the EU Tyre Label demands compliance with only three criteria).
Maximum Grip, dynamic performance – perfectly attuned to suspension components and adaptive systems.
Particularly long life, top safety ratings and state-of-the-art run-flat technology.
The systematic use of special materials reduces fuel consumption and lowers noise levels.
Our tyres resist deformation, so they last longer and you use less fuel. Deformation means that energy requirements for the car to move are greater, which increases fuel consumption. MINI Star Marked Tyres are created with reduced rolling resistance, which reduces deformation by means of special materials on the running surfaces and sides.
With MINI Star Marked Runflat Tyres you no longer have to feel deflated, even if you go flat mid-journey. Runflat technology allows you to keep driving on a flat tyre at speeds of up to 50 mph. The reinforced side walls are made of a heat-resistant rubber, while special rim geometry stops the pressure-less tyre from slipping off, even on bends.
FREQUENTLY ASKED CUSTOMER QUESTIONS ON WINTER TYRES.
Question: Do I need to have winter tyres fitted on my BMW/MINI?
(Often asked in association with: ‘We very rarely get any snow’)
Snow is only one part of the issue. Another big consideration is temperature. At around 7°C and below, summer tyres harden and grip is compromised. Winter tyres remain supple due to the natural rubber compounds used, providing significantly better grip thanks to their ‘glass transition temperature’ of between -21° to -26°C. In ice and snow, the specially ribbed, self-cleaning tyre profiles come into effect. They ensure
that traction and directional stability are maintained, as well as shortening braking distances. To establish a good margin of safety when outside temperatures drop below 7ºC, BMW/MINI recommends winter tyres with a minimum tread depth of 4 mm.
Question: Don’t winter tyres wear out more quickly, as well as being noisy and uncomfortable?
Modern winter tyres are much more suitable for winter driving than summer tyres. When used in such conditions, they are by no means noisy or uncomfortable. It is true that winter tyres wear more quickly in summer due to their softer compound, however, summer tyres will wear 40% faster during the winter compared to winter tyres. All this further underlines the importance to using tyres that are appropriate and suitable to
