Tyre Labelling feature has been introduced to provide valuable customer information, including important information on a tyres performance, energy efficiency and ecology.
Rules on Tyre Labelling
The tyre labelling regulation is an EU standard that provides useful information to customers who wish to purchase tyres, to enable them to check tyre characteristics.
Regulation on EU Tyre Labelling
Without this information on the tyres performance, it often makes it difficult for customers to take important elements into account in their purchase decision.
The aim of the labelling is to encourage a market transformation towards more fuel-efficient, safe and silent tyres.
The European Tyre Labelling system is implemented according to the following three criteria. The graphics on the label should be very familiar as they are already used for common household appliances as energy efficiency labels.
Efficiency in fuel consumption
Fuel efficiency is measured by the rolling resistance of the tyres.
The EU tyre labelling criteria will specify the rolling resistance of the tyre. This will determine the tyres overall fuel efficiency.
Classed from G (less efficient) to A (more efficient)
Grip on the wet
Wet grip provides information on the braking performance of tyres in wet conditions.
Tyres with good wet grip will require a shorter braking distance when the conditions are wet. Wet grip is a tyres most important safety feature.
Classed from G (greater braking distance) to A (shorter braking distance)
External noise emission level
The level of external noise emissions are measured in decibels (dB) and are indicated in three categories (refer to the black bars on the left). A larger number of black bars equal more road noise than tyres.
In addition to the decibel volume indication (dB (A)), a pictogram indicates whether the external rolling noise generated by the tyre is higher than the future European limit value (three black bars = rather noisy tyre), up to 3 dB less than future European limit value (two black bars = average noisy tyre) or more than 3 dB lower than the future European limit value (one black bar = silent tyre).
