 EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
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.

09/2014 auto motor und sport 185/70 R14 88T Satisfactory
Strength: Acceptably short stopping distances on snow and dry roads, docile handling in the dry. Very quiet tyre. Weakness: Very little lateral guidance, weak traction and strong understeering on snow. Cornering grip lacking in the wet, sluggish steering response, risk of aquaplaning, high rolling resistance.

Very good report price/quality

30.10.2017 from VP
Excellent value, great performance. One of the quietest winter tires I have ever used.

16.02.2015 from Gerald Young
I had bought Toyo for my wife and Michelin for my son at hefty prices and now had to buy winter tires for my Suzuki. I had reservations about Chinese tires, but decided to try a set. What a surprise. Easy on the wallet and an excellent winter tire.

03.11.2014 from Harold Wilson
Very soft rubber, great grip on ice and in the wet, good in the snow, with extra grip particles in the tread. Great tyre at a great price. Much better than the Toyo's that I had on before. This is my future brand.
