EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

01.08.2015fromJohn Leavy I am very pleased with these tyres which are good value for money and good quality.
02.06.2015fromGreig Thomson brilliant tyre, was the first time trying these and woulod reccomend them fully. Dont always have to buy the most expensive tyre to get what you want nowadays.
05.02.2015fromR Lower Very good tyres in snow and ice and in wet conditions have had them before I do a lot of miles about 100000 a year so I need good tyres but not over priced
22.05.2014fromJon Simpson These tyres were for one of our employees - They have consistently rated them very highly in all conditions - I would like to know how long they will last.
