EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

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.

thought I'd give these tyres ago as they are fantastic value for money. With 430bhp going though them they grip far better than every thing else I've tried apart from Vredestein Sessanta. Would certainly recommend these to any one in a powerful rear wheel drive car

Very impressed with whats advertised as a summer tyre that grips awsomely in all conditions. I've used it on track in anger and it was pretty good, maybe abit soft and didnt sustain some damage but overall really good tyre for all round use, not too pricey. would buy again i reckon.

Used on rear for ~50000km so good wear. Now down to last mm of legal tread so replacing with a premium brand to compare. My only major gripe is that they have bulges on the tread surface now and are noisy, but after driving up and down a farm track for 2 years on them I guess that would do it. Not a single puncture or sidewall fault though :)

Perfect tires for sport cars (for drifting)... A bit bad for Drag Racing... Any-way, perfect tires for this price!
