Front axle tyres must fulfil special requirements due to their direct connection with the steering axle. They must provide directional stability when driving straight and tracking stability when cornering. Our high-quality products provide your vehicle with the right grip on the road - whether in regional or long-distance transport, on buses or municipal vehicles. You can find the right tyre in our online shop.
The vehicle's drive wheel tyres usually carry the greatest load. They have to provide the traction for acceleration on the road as well as transfer the braking forces and decelerations by the engine to the ground when easing off the throttle. For this reason, depending on the intended use, our treads have an interlocked, block-like tread that also has specially enhanced resistance and is particularly cost-effective.
Their job is to distribute the weight of the vehicle and transfer more braking power to the road, while giving the vehicle lateral stability under lateral forces. By using the very latest tyre technology ,our tyres with the Long Life Compounds and a flexible tread have a long service life.
Due to their special tread design, our all-position tyres are multifunctional.
They are ideally used in local/construction site traffic or in regional transport. This is why buses and construction site vehicles are mostly equipped with all-position tyres. An especially low rolling resistance and customised optional extras, such as a particularly cut-resistant rubber compound, make our all-position tyres the right tyre for your vehicle.
Tyres suitable for winter are becoming increasingly important. Therefore, we have also made our most important treads ready for winter use . With the 3PMSF symbol, we meet the highest standard for winter tyres, thereby providing you with the necessary grip on snow- and ice-covered roads. With deeper treads and a sophisticated sipe structure, you and your vehicle will be well equipped for the winter with our winter tyres.

Mileage is particularly important in long-distance transport. Not only is a quality rubber compound crucial for this, but also the sophisticated tread pattern, which should be as durable as possible. In addition, the tyre should have the lowest possible rolling resistance to ensure low fuel consumption. Windpower tyres are designed and manufactured according to state-of-the-art technological standards, so that they are always ready to meet the demands of long distances.
Local and regional transport
A combination of fuel-efficiency and particularly resistant shoulders is indispensable in local and regional transport. When developing our tyres for daily regional and distribution haulage, we engineered them according to these very requirements. With extremely high resistance to impact and collision damage due to a strong shoulder combined with a sophisticated rubber compound , our tyres are a reliable, fuel-efficient companion on your daily routes.
Tyres for buses and municipal transport, such as waste collection, have to endure a variety of acceleration and braking manoeuvres. They also usually have to be driven close to the kerb. For us, this means that when developing these tyres, we placed a particularly high value on the durability of the rubber compound and a particularly resistant tyre shoulder.
Regional parcel distribution and the fast, flexible transportation of goods and merchandise by vans are growing in demand and becoming more important, even over longer distances. Therefore, we also count on our experience in this sector. High mileage, good grip and a reinforced tyre shoulder are what make our van tyres so reliable and cost-efficient.

All Windpower tyres meet the requirements for "DE Minimis" aid and, in addition to an economical purchase price, offer further savings potential through government subsidies:
The Federal Office for Goods Transport supports road haulage companies through the "De Minimis" funding programme for the areas of "safety and environment" with a maximum subsidy of up to 33,000 euros per year. Funding is provided for the purchase of equipment, facilities and other measures in the field of environment and safety, as well as for consultancy on environmental and safety-related issues in business management. Vehicle-related support measures also include the procurement of low-noise tyres or tyres with optimised rolling resistance for trucks. This is on condition that they comply with the requirements of the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council for the type-approval of motor vehicles. (KOM (2008) 316).
All of Windpower's profiles meet these requirements and thus enable considerable savings in the purchase price as well as a government subsidy.
