Tyre Labelling

Since 2012 all new car tyres must come with an EU label which identifies 3 characteristics of the tyre, namely its wet grip, its fuel economy and its noise level. Whilst these labels are helpful in understanding and comparing the performance of tyres, it is also important to understand some of the issues behind the labelling.

For example the tests do not cover dry grip, cornering, longevity, performance of the tyre at different temperatures, aquaplaning and so on. It is also worth bearing in mind that at present there is no independent verification of a manufacturer’s results , so the results should be used as a guide rather than the definitive answer.

Thank you so much to the team at Tyrefair. I had a puncture on my epic 13 hour trip from Northampton on Sunday….they fixed it very efficiently and got me on the road again almost before I had finished the cup of coffee they made for me. Friendly, courteous and value for money…really appreciated. May 2014
