Question Tyre Scoop! MRF to launch a new brand of asymmetrical tyres called 'Perfinza'

Request to Mods: Please move this post to a new thread if required.

MRF is planning to launch a new brand of asymmetrical tires called the 'PERFINZA'. I guess it's going to replace the ZLO's(personal view here).

I have a habit of checking the type of tires people use in their cars and came across this one. I believe it's the car of an employee in MRF.

Seems to be production ready and the brand has been trademarked.

So let the pictures do the talking-

Thanks for sharing Turbohead! Moving to a new thread. This is perhaps Team-BHP's first tyre scoop.

Trust a BHPian to check out tyres like this . What's next - manufacturers testing camouflaged tyres?!

It's been in the making for a fairly long time. Looking at the tread design though, I would say it wont be a performance tyre. More a mainstream soft-ish compound tyre.

If it was a performance tyre, they would have definitely branded it a ZLO or Z Sports or Z something. MRF have invested a lot of money in creating a ZLO brand and I'm sure they would use it for their performance tyres. All the tyres installed on the ITC, IJTC, Super Stock, Formula 2000 and Formula 1600 tyres are branded ZLO. Obviously the tyre compound and construction and everything is far different from the road going ZLOs, but it's about creating a brand.

So, I feel this Perfinza is something to battle the likes of the Earth 1, the Michelin XM2 and the Continental CC5. They will be soft but with typical MRF ruggedness. The rubber compound also in the pictures above look soft.
