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.

01.11.2015 from r j robertson great tyres at a superb price
22.07.2015 from David Vass An excellent quality tyre at a very good price. I am an enthusiastic driver who likes nothing more than to hang the tail out and these tyres are so controllable. Just superb.
18.04.2015 from Ian S Good budget price tyre on my daughters car and wearing well. No problems in grip but she doesn't drive to extremes.
04.01.2015 from RHeppers The tyre gives me great confidence in the winter conditions, one should not be obnoxious but enough to know if I leave my comfort zone I'll be okay.
I fitted these tyres before the autumn so i have had a great range of weather conditions to test them. They are on both my front driving wheels. In the wet they are good. Driving on leaves and mud was good as well, driving on frosty roads was good as well, the steering became only slightly lighter. Motorway speeds are good plenty of grip and low (ish) noise.
I would definitely recommend these tyres and I will (price depending) buy these again for front and rear use!
