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.

03.05.2021fromMark Morgan Ok, so I have MPS4S's for summer tyres but whilst biblical levels of grip in warmer temps do loose grip at less than 10c.
Already had a set of 305 Pirelli Sotozero for the rears and read reviews on these for the fronts and they seemed capable. So ordered them up and had them fitted to my spare winter alloys last Oct.
Winter rubber is a softer compound than Summer and of course there was increased tread noise due to 8mm on them
Have just (last week if April) had them taken off and swapped to my summer tyres and alloys. Appreciate during lockdown I've been doing less than half the miles I'd normally cover in 6 months (but have 2 other cars with all-season rubber)
All tyres showed minimum wear with tread still being at above 7mm.
Would defo recommend, as based on wear rates they should last me another 3-4yrs :)
23.08.2020fromEd W No problems with these tyres - delivered quickly, fitted and balanced easily. So far they've performed brilliantly in all road conditions from 30C summer to icy winter. They are quiet on the motorway but offer decent grip for limited off roading, mud and snow. It's too early to tell how they will last but so far so good.
12.08.2019fromADAM SMITH A bit dubious about road noise compared to summer Goodyear Eagle F1s but quite unnecessary - not noisier at all, no difference in fuel consumption, around 55mpg on a good run, and the grip in wet significantly better. Tread pattern near identical to recommended Pirelli or Continental for a lot less dosh.
Only one winter's worth so far - and the change was half-way through - but looking forward to November to change them back.
