EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

14.01.2016 from compugeek5150 wear is on the high side, but even. Grip, noise, comfort on par with Hankook Ventus V12 - although BOTH front tires ordered had a flaw in mfg in the sidewalls preventing them from mounting square with a slight stretch on a 9.5 wheel - 245/35. rears are stretched on a 11.5 275/35 with no issues.
18.08.2015 from Stellerex These tires are awesome! I'm no tire expert like some reviewers but as a casual driver these work great. Of course they'll ride a bit rough because they are after all extremely low profile. These were mounted March 2015 and still have a ton of tread left. I recommend anyone to buy these well worth every penny and then some. Also this tire store is the best to buy from period.
05.07.2015 from Menaldo Tcs system isnt working and still get traction
16.06.2015 from Phillip Purchased these tires in the past and was very pleased with them.
