A detailed guide to tyre labelling:
Wet grip of a particular unit is extremely important. If a tyre's wet grip performance is not sufficient, it will increase the chances of aquaplaning and road accidents.
The EU tyre label estimates wet grip performance of tyres within a range of A to G. The difference in the stopping distance between each of these ratings is 2. 5meters.
About 20% of your car's fuel efficiency is influenced by tyres, and therefore, it is an important parameter to be checked before choosing a set.
EU label rates a tyre’s fuel efficiency within a range of A to G. This rating is also colour coded as explained below
A-rated tyre with green colour indicates that the unit is highly fuel-efficient.
On the other hand, a G rated tyre with red colour indicates the unit has poor fuel efficiency.
The EU tyre label rates a unit’s noise levels with 3 sound wave bars, as mentioned below:
- 1 sound wave bar: Indicates that the unit is highly noise efficient and is below 3db.
- 2 sound wave bars: Indicates that a particular unit just satisfies the required EU standards but may fail future regulations.
- 3 sound wave bars: Indicates that a particular unit fails to meet the standards.
