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.

12.07.2015 from Mr Francis not covered enough miles to comment but seem okay - perhaps could do with more of a shoulder to protect alloys more. Bit limited as they are one direction tyres but seem good value.
03.11.2014 from M Pitt Got fed up of paying almost £200 for continentals / good years that never wore out but got damaged by potholes.
So did some research online and these came out with good reviews.
So I bought two for the fronts - drove on them for a couple of months and was very impressed - could not tell the difference
So much so a couple of months later when the goodyear rears were fading I swapped them for Nexen N6000
At around £90 + fitting they are great tyres... no issues with them at all.
18.10.2014 from David Eyre Good all-round tyre, good grip in the wet. Tested on road and track. No noticeable road noise. Good value.
27.09.2014 from Peter Videan An exceptional quality dry weather tyre, particularly at your price!
