EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

10.05.2010 from Ivan Just for road.
22.02.2010 from Tom Even wear all round, currently at 75000m, approx 110000km, original set. still got approx 3-4mm left
29.12.2009 from N. van Eldik Good tire fore use in summer conditions, wet or dry. in winter ( below 0 ) it lose grip sideways en braking (with dry and wet conditions). Teriible grip in snow, sand of wet gras. So I would not buy this tire because with a 4x4 I sometimes let a boat into water in wet gras, and in the winter you must put different tires on your car.
06.12.2009 from Ken Longest lasting tire I EVER ) had (121000 KM) Nissan dealer could not believe it !!! Will not buy again, as they are not offering much grip off-road ! For normal use, and economy, they are great
