EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.

Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.

Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

PORSCHE FIT THESE TYRES ON ALL NEW CAYMANS AND THEY ARE A PERFECT MATCH FOR THE CAR!!
12.03.2013 from Alan
very poor performance on wet. Very low mileage. Too expensive for what you get. Could't cope whit 260 hp to manage. Definitely not a high performance tyre.
06.03.2013 from Mark
Excellent high performance dry weather tyre but the wear rate is a little too high. At this price point there are many options.
16.10.2012 from Alan
Very poor on wet road. Not too bad on dry roads. Understeer when pushed to the limit. I would not reccomend it for sporty cars.
