What is tyre labelling?

This is a piece of EU Legislation that came into force which in 2012 which requires every new tyre sold within Europe (with some exceptions) to be labelled based on the performance of specific criteria - much like a fridge, freezer or light bulb.

EU Tyre Label

On the label there are grades given to 3 important categories that should be considered when choosing a tyre:

• Fuel Efficiency
• Wet Grip
• External rolling noise
