 EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

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.

I bought 2 Falken FK452 275/40ZR17 & 2 Falken FK452 225/40ZR17 for my 2001 Porsche 986 Boxster. I had been running a Falken ZIEX ZE-912 195/55-16 on my GL1800 Goldwing for a number of years and was impressed with ride quality, build quality, & most of all its good adhesion. The tires on my Porsche are phenomenal. My p-car is a 150 mile per day daily driver. Lot's of twisties getting from the coast to the interior everyday. I do triple digit speeds on them daily. Can throw them into corners at 80-100+ on dry days and the same turns at 80+ with pouring rain. I love these tires! And when I think of the $ saved from buying a much more expensive tire, I am even more pleased. Besides Dunlops, these have some of the best adhesion out there IMHO. I believe the FK-452 is discontinued. I look forward to my next set of Falkens.

great tires extremely good in the rain I drive quite aggressively and they have surpassed my expectations I've been a falken user for many many years for street tires I wouldn't get anything else price performance and longevity I don't think they can be beat
