Recent changes in the EU tyre label
Here are some latest tyre labelling rules you must be aware of:
Wet grip rating: This parameter signifies the wet grip performance of a tyre. It ranges from A to E. Tyres rated A offer shorter braking distances on wet roads, whereas those rated E have a poor wet grip performance.
Noise rating: Tyres come categorised into three classes- A, B and C, based on the noise emission. The tyres with an A rating will emit minimum noise. B-rated tyres come with significant external noise, and C-rated tyres are so high in noise that they are banned.
Fuel efficiency: Similar to the wet grip rating, fuel efficiency rating ranges from A to E. Tyres with an A rating come with lower rolling resistance and thus higher fuel efficiency. However, E-rated tyres come with poor fuel economy.
There are several other additions to the EU tyre labels. One must consider these before planning to buy tyres Coventry.
- There will be a stalagmite symbol on the tyre label of Nordic winter tyres.
- There will be a 3PMSF symbol with every tyre custom-built for snow performance.
- Finally, all the tyres will contain a unique QR code. If you scan this code, you will find detailed information about the tyres you purchase directly from the EU database EPREL.
