Volvo C40 Recharge: Tyres & Wheels
The Volvo C40 Recharge is one of those few high-end luxury vehicles, which come equipped with different-sized front and rear tyres. This all-electric SUV comes with 19-inch aero alloy wheels as standard, with the front tyres being 235/50 R19 tubeless radial units and the rear tyres being 255/45 R19 tyres. For these tyre sizes, the India-spec Volvo C40 Recharge comes equipped with Pirelli P Zero tubeless radial tyres.
The Pirelli P Zero tyre is considered one of the most ultra-high-performance tyres for SUVs, which is a good match for the exhilarating performance claimed by this coupe SUV. The Pirelli P Zero for Volvo C40 Recharge has an asymmetric tread pattern for both front and rear tyre sizes, which helps the tyre in enhancing its performance and control while braking.
Over wet surfaces, the new nano-composite compound of the Pirelli P Zero is instrumental in enhancing grip levels. In addition, the special s-shaped grooves in the tread area of the Pirelli P Zero reduce cabin noise levels which filter in the cabin.
