Below you can see the new EU Tyre Label with full explaination. This label will be on all tyres from November 1st and will help you, the customer, to make an informed choice about safer and more environmentally friendly driving. The labels are categories according to their performance in three key areas.
1) Fuel Efficiency
Category A is the most efficient and means you will use the least amount of fuel on your journey, with category G being the least fuel efficient. A tyre which is more fuel efficient helps to reduce both CO2 emissions and driving costs. Choosing A rated tyres over G rated tyres could potentially reduce fuel consumption by up to 7.5%.
2) Wet Braking
Category A rated tyres provide the shortest braking distances on wet roads whereas the G rated will have the longest braking distance in the wet. Wet braking performance is critical to your road safety as it affects how quickly you will be able to brake. Choosing A rated tyres over the G rated tyres can help you stop up to 18m shorter.
3) Exterior Noise
The third element of the label is noise emission and it is measured in decibels. One black wave shows the least noise emission and is at least 3dbs below the future legal limit. The three black waves show the most noise emission, which is above future legal limits.
More to Think About
The above categories are not the only factors which determine the specifications of tyres and are only three of about 12 performance criteria. Other performance criteria which need to be taken into consideration are wet and dry handling, aquaplaning, resistance, tyre longevity, braking and handling in snow and ice, high speed stability and traction.
