EU tire labelling rules help consumers make an informed purchase decision when they replace their tires, as the label highlights the performance of the tire on issues relating to fuel efficiency, safety and noise. From May 2021, Regulation (EU) 2020/740 applies, changing the way tires are labelled.
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tire will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to E.
Depending on the tire’s rolling resistance, its fuel efficiency will range from class A to class E.
The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A down to C.
