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.

25.09.2011from French I chose these tyres as they were standard fitment for the rav 4, a more road going soft roader, I was looking for more even wear than the OE Bridgestone Duellers which seem to look tired after only 10,000 miles. Not a suprise as it is a more dual purpose tyre. What surprised me is the evenness of the wear, the last set was changed with an even 2mm right across the tread of all 4 tyres after around 17000 town miles. What also surpised me is how well they coped in the snow, the 2010 winter did not stop this car. It is hard to test handling and braking when you drive a cr-v but they did not disapoint.
31.10.2010from Kotrolos Propably the best tyre for SUV (70% on/30%off).
