ERJ staff report (BC)
Almetyevsk, Tatarstan, Russia – Nizhnekamskshina, the tire making subsidiary of the Russian oil group Tatneft, has delivered its millionth Kama Euro tire to the Volkswagen plant in Kaluga, Russia.
VW Polos produced in Kaluga are equipped with Kama Euro 129 and 236 tire models in 175/70 R14, 185/60 R15 and 195/55 R15 sizes.
The Kama Euro 129 is described as a “modern road passenger tire” with an asymmetric tread pattern designed for summer conditions.
Compounding with silica is claimed to improve wet grip characteristics and extend tire life.
The Kama Euro 236 is an all-season tire with a summer tread pattern. Four longitudinal grooves in the central part of the tread, and the pattern spreading onto the sidewall, are claimed to reduce aquaplaning risk.
Tread block locations are precisely calculated to reduce noise generation.
