EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

24.11.2019fromAndrew Lennon I have found these tyres to be excellent across the speed range and under all types of braking, Grip in the dry is brilliant not quite as good in the wet, standing water at speed can feel a little unsure [width of the tyre also a factor]. I would certainly buy these again or recommend them to a friend.
10.11.2018fromDenis Ford streetka had 16" low profile tyres) changed to 14" alloy rims this was the only company I could find who could supply tyres to bring the wheal to same size as 16" not your normal size tyre very helpfull very quick delivery ...car now gives smooth comfortable ride.
01.07.2018fromtheocj I have found that the tires have lasted well over 6 months, 6 times as long as previous cheap tires and still have 60% of their tread left bearing in mind that i have done 13000 miles since then, not only this but they provide plenty of grip for any daily driving or spirited driving on the road.
07.10.2015fromAlan Not as outright grippy as I thought they'd be, but good tyres.
