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.

06.10.2016 from Sean Amazing All Terrain traction. Great for lighter SUV, maintains bite on rough terrain, admirable performance on snow. A bit noisy and the ride is harsher than a comparable All Season tire, but the traction is worth it.
10.02.2016 from Trey in SC These tires offer excellent wet and dry traction while having great road manners and good for moderate off road conditions. I had these tires put on just before the SC flooding in 2015 and have had plenty of time driving in wet/muddy conditions shortly after the flood. These are great for someone who wants good off road traction with very little road noise and good ride comfort and are excellent in the rain.
17.11.2015 from Heather Kennon I have a Nissan Altima and these tires worked great when we got hit with a big snow storm. I live up on a mountain in Virginia and I didn't have any problems after these tires were put on. I am ordering a new set for this upcoming winter and am going to put the last pair on the back tires.
