Ever since it was founded in 1970 in Karlsruhe, the trading company that is part of the Pneuhage corporate group has developed into one of the leading wheel and tyre wholesalers in Europe. The advantages of being an independent family-owned company are made clear by the broad range of products and brands for cars, motorcycles and also commercial vehicles of all types.
Since 1987 its own house brand of PLATIN for wheels and tyres has been a shining example, not only of an outstanding price-performance ratio, but also for variety and quality. Car and van tyres for summer and winter and numerous aluminium wheel designs cover just about every current vehicle make and model.
The successful introduction of tyre pressure monitoring systems began in 2014, including their integration into a new online dealer store and the well-known wheel configurator. Interpneu is one among the leading tyre and wheel wholesalers in Europe.
The Interpneu locations for international sales and services all across Germany.
The new EU tyre label helps consumers to decide in favour of a higher fuel efficiency class for their tyres. This can contribute to large reductions in running costs and emissions. Enhanced wet grip means greater road safety, and details of external rolling noise contributes to a reduction in traffic noise levels.
The actual fuel savings and road safety depend heavily on the behaviour of drivers, and in particular on the following:
Less rolling noise saves fuel and cuts CO2. This property is assigned to classes A to E.
Wet grip is assigned to classes A to E. Wet grip is crucial to safe driving. For instance, the difference between class A and class E braking distances is 18 m.
The label presents the volume in dB and the class A (quieter), B, or C (louder). The noise emitted by tyres affects the total noise levels emitted by the vehicle.
The snowflake symbol confirms that the snow tested tyre keeps within the 3PMSF limits (type approval).
