Barum Polaris 5 features
The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
A new generation tyre Barum Polaris 5 is the successor to the well-received Polaris 3 model. Manufacturers focused on innovative solutions, even better materials and a very high quality finish to the new model.
The model is intended for winter use in passenger cars and larger SUVs. A note of interest is that Barum gave up on the sequence order and after Polaris 3, Polaris 5 appeared on the market.
