Tyre Labelling

EU Tyre Label Criteria


Rolling resistance/fuel efficiency

Lower rolling resistance saves fuel. The values A to G indicate the effect on fuel consumption, from low to high.


Grip on a wet road surface

In the category ‘grip on a wet road surface’, the classifications A to G indicate the relative braking distances, from short to long, on a wet road surface.


Exterior noise level

This value indicates the noise level in dB that can be heard outside the vehicle. Low noise tyres reduce noise pollution for the surrounding areas.
