What is the EU tyre label?
The EU aspires to reach climate neutrality by 2050. Therefore, it is illegal to sell or drive a vehicle without an EU labelled tyre in the UK. This label provides essential details about the following performance metrics:
It informs us about the short braking response of a tyre in wet road conditions, represented as alphabets from ‘A’ to ‘E’, where ‘A’ delivers maximum stopping distance efficiency and ‘E’ the minimum.
It tells us about how much noise a tyre emits. Before the updates, noise emission used the soundbar to represent. Now, it is denoted by alphabets between A to E. Meaning, if you are looking for tyres Bicester that generates the least amount of noise, go for an ‘A’-grade variant.
Once again, alphabets ranging between A and E denote fuel efficiency. It implies that you choose an ‘A’-rated tyre when switching to car tyres Bicester to manage your fuel expenses efficiently.
Note: Before May 2021, fuel efficiency and wet grip performance parameters were represented as alphabets from A to G and noise emission was represented as soundwaves.
- All tyres have a marked QR code linked with the EU database- EPREL. Scanning it will furnish complete information about the tyre.
- Nordic winter tyres have a new ice stalagmite marking.
- Superior snow performance and safety features of a tyre now use a 3PMSF symbol.
