The long-lasting summer tyre that saves on fuel costs
The EcoControl tyre is a fuel-saving summer tyre that also gives you high mileage and excellent grip.
Lower fuel costs
Drive with peace of mind
Better braking in the wet
High mileage. The EcoControl wears evenly over time, thanks to a flatter contour and increased tread width. As a result it lasts for longer, giving you more mileage between tyre changes. High performance, full steel belted tyre for LKWs and buses in long-distance traffic. High mileage, quiet ride, with a reduced fuel consumption. Excellent steering.
Lower fuel costs. Save money with every journey. The Fulda EcoControl uses an innovative silica compound that reduces the tyre’s rolling resistance – lowering your car’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Drive with peace of mind. Enjoy a quieter, more comfortable drive. The EcoControl’s optimised block arrangement reduces noise emissions.
Better braking in the wet. The special silica compound is optimised for high levels of wet grip, which means shorter braking distances in rainy weather. With an asymmetric design that maximises road contact, you’ll experience reliable performance on dry roads too.
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.

10.11.2012fromMartin K. A great all round tyre, this is my second set, much cheaper than the Michelins but very much on a par with them. Will continue to use and would recommend as a very good alternative to all the more expensive brands.
04.10.2012frompanik Very good tyres for the price. Excellent grip and fuel economy and well designed and made. Compare easily with much higher spec tyres. Once there is snow, however, grip goes dramatically.
28.09.2012fromblack a round My best tyres ever!
16.11.2011fromTim Excellent tyres. Beats the top brands hands-down. Decent feedback through steering wheel. Very quiet tyre. Checked tread depth after 1200 miles and only 0.1mm wear. Excellent. Highly recommended.
