The Barum Bravuris 3HM is the latest tyre from the Czech manufacturer Barum for the 2014 summer season. The tyre is designed for mid- to premium-range passenger cars. Its versatility is due to the fact that the tyre comes in lots of different sizes. The main element of the tyre that ensures driving safety and comfort is its asymmetric tread pattern. This gives the tyre a very advanced design, characterised by excellent performance on any type of summer surface. This design is also responsible for another of the tyre's features, as indicated in the name given to the tyre by the manufacturer: High Mileage. Thanks to its special technology, the Barum Bravuris 3HM is noted for its exceptionally high mileage. This is mainly due to the innovative rubber compound from which it is made, which means that the tyre is exceptionally durable and therefore wears slowly and lasts longer. A big advantage of this tyre model is the fact that it offers the same performance level throughout its lifetime.
It is the successor to the renowned Barum Bravuris 2. If we compare the Barum Bravuris 3HM with its predecessor, we can see that the newer tyre ensures a more stable and thus safer driving experience. By releasing this tyre model in a wider range of sizes than the previous Barum Bravuris 2, the manufacturer has hinted at its change of priorities. Barum wants to create a tyre that is no longer just for small to medium cars, but that is also suited to premium-range vehicles.
Barum is an economy tyre producer belonging to the German Continental group. The company was founded in 1945 and produces tyres for passenger cars and lorries.
