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.

14.02.2015 from Marius Radoi good tyres, good price.
there are not so good as summer on dry but are good enough. noise level is low, maneuverability very good and resistance the same.
01.10.2012 from Mihai T Good tyre in snow,very low tyre wear.
24.02.2012 from Edward Excellent price/performance tyre. Rules in wet conditions, very good on ice and snow.
05.12.2010 from Brian I bought these tyres after a hard and long winter last year and getting stuck numerous times . I can not believe the difference these tyres have made this winter , I have not got stuck once and that's in 1ft of snow up here in Northumberland on a remote farm . The only limiting factor is the ground clearance of my car , I highly recommend these tyres you will be amazed of the grip on deep snow and ice
