The new and revised tyre labelling rules
Your car tyre’s wet-grip performance is now rated on a scale of A to E. Tyre models with rating A provide the most efficient braking performance on wet surfaces. Alternatively, products that are E-rated offer the least efficiency in this field.
The tyre fuel efficiency is between A to E. Models rated A have lower rolling resistance, so they offer better fuel efficiency. On the other hand, tyres with an E rating have a higher rolling resistance, which is detrimental to your car’s fuel economy.
An ABC rating system now signifies the noise emission efficiency of your car’s tyres:
- A refers to the maximum noise efficiency, that is, minimum noise.
- B refers to high external noise by tyres.
- Tyres rated C are now completely banned.
There is a 3PMSF symbol on tyres designed specifically for snow performance.
The label of a Nordic winter tyre now sports a stalagmite symbol.
The tyre models now feature a unique QR code. You can scan this code to get comprehensive information about these models from the EU database, EPREL.
