The European Tyre Label

Introduction
Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.

Benefits
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.

Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.

We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.

Symbols
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise

Take action
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.

Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

Choose from our large online selection or ask us for advice. Our experts are happy to help you choose the appropriate tyres from our extensive range of products.

Fuel Efficiency

The classification in terms of fuel efficiency is divided into seven classes, from the A-class (the highest) to G-class (the lowest). A tyre in the A-class consumes 0.1 litres less at 100km than a tyre in the B-class. An essential component for fuel efficiency is the rolling resistance or rolling friction.

Rolling Resistance
Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.

Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.

Wet grip

It shows how efficient the vehicle can brake on wet roads. Wet grip is an important feature especially with summer tyres. Class A has the highest safety and the shortest braking distances. Class F has low security and the longest braking distance.

The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.

Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.

Tyre Noise

The symbol indicates the external rolling noise in decibels and as a 3 class sound wave symbol to clarify whether the tire can keep the recommended level. External rolling noise does not correspond to tyre noise inside the compartment.

A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.

Symbol
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.

I like the way the web site was before when you showed if the tire was all season or not...can you change it back to that way

The tread wear was poor after 6000 miles and I rotated them at 5,000 miles. I purchased a road hazard from tires easy.com too. The outside of the tire near the rim was torn and I got 2 flat tires...right fron and right rear on Wed, June 17th, 2015. I have pictures and I sent them to tires easy.com and still no response. I guess I have to call them as I had to get 2 other tires and they look about the same but were a bit more. For wear and tear...I would not recommend them.

19.12.2014 from Mike Rampino
I wanted some inexpensive tires so I could test the wear when my Cayene was lowered. I bought these because you can't usually touch the 19 tires for under $300 a piece. I figured that I'd be unhappy with them but I could deal for a while. Well! I have to say that I am truly impressed with the performance of these tires. I still swing my 5000lb beast around hairpins without a second thought. They are not to hard and not to soft. Perfect for all around driving. I live in NH so I did put snow tires on for the winter but I did get a chance to use these in the snow. They were just as good as any other all season tires are in the snow. I did punch a hole through one of the sidewalls recently when I hit a sharp curb pulling into a parking spot ( truly embarrassing as I have never done this in my 30 years of driving). I think I would have torn the sidewall of any tire but it did seem that these were a bit thin. For under a $100, I had another tire ordered from tires-easy.com before the tow truck even arrived. People may hesitate buying a v rated tire over a z but seriously? The v is rated to 150mph; after that you are taking your life in your hands one way or another. Bottom line is that these tires perform and look like the more expensive tires. I am happy with them.
