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.

10.07.2015 from Tyler May try Michelin's soft wall tire next. The disappointing ride comfort may be due to the Monroe shocks which are not oem brand shocks.
30.07.2014 from Roger Moody This tyre was the original equipment tyre on the car & at your prices quite a bargain! If there are quieter tyres I would be interested to know what they are Road noise seems to be a weakness on Giuliettas!
06.04.2014 from koitsos poor grip.poor braking.and now too much noice.
18.02.2013 from Paul S Purchased to replace standard fitment for the Vectra as previous was damaged does what it says on the tin, Its round, its black, and follows the front ones, does what a tyre should do. good for noise, inside minimal, as for outside noise, don't know been too cold to open window, overall happy
