Goodride’s excellent test on stopping distance
SPAIN—Comparing with other international tyres, Goodride Sport SA-37 also had obvious advantages, especially in the wet braking test of 225/45R17 tyre in the test report focusing on the stopping distance by Applus+ IDIADA, which is a leading company specializing in providing design, engineering, testing and homologation services to the automotive industry worldwide.
The test was held at IDIADA Proving ground (L’Albomar), the most comprehensive independent proving ground in Europe, and included 5 rounds total every tyre with temperatures of 13.4 degrees Celsius. The test speed is between 80 kilometers per hour and 5 kilometers per hour.
Testing vehicle stopping distance means setting up a safe area for the braking, which is one of the most important performances for the tyres. Five different international brands were chosen to test, including Zhongce Goodride Sport SA-37 and Michelin Primacy. The objective of this project is to perform stopping distance evaluation performance in wet condition on 4 different tyre sizes:
– 225/45R17 94W
– 205/55R16 91V
– 185/65R15 88H
– 185/65R14 86H
The graphs showed that the average stop distance of Goodride 225/45R17 is 29.5m, which is one of the best tyres in the test besides Michelin achieving 28.3m. The figure clearly showed Goodride tyre’s high safety performance and revealed the reason why so many customers choose the tyre brand. On the other hand, it is not difficult to find that ZC Rubber, Goodride tyre’s manufacturer, not only is large in scale, but also advanced in technology. Safety values most. ZC rubber will keep its step to pursue the highest quality.
