Did you know that by law all new tyres must have a proper EU tyre label attached that provides details about wet grip, noise emission, and fuel efficiency.
This law was first introduced in 2012 and slightly modified in 2021.

Let us understand the EU tyre label in more details.
What Does the EU Tyre Label Inform?
EU tyre label primarily details three basic performance parameters of a tyre. They are-
It is denoted by letters from A to E. An ‘A-rated’ tyre is marked green for providing maximum fuel efficiency. In contrast, an ‘E-rated’ model is marked red for delivering the lowest mileage.
It informs how the tyre will perform on slippery and wet surfaces, with performance graded from A to E. While an ‘A-grade’ tyre performs the best on wet terrains, the ‘E-grade’ model performs the worst.
After replacing the sound-bar format, noise emission is now rated by letters A, B and C and measured in decibels. An ‘A-rated’ model emits noises ranging from 67 dB to 71 dB. In comparison, a ‘C-rated’ tyre emits noises between 72 dB and 76 dB.
Additional Tyre Label Information
In May 2021, a few other icons were added to the EU tyre label. They are-
- Grip in snowy conditions (only for C1 tyres)
- 3-Peak Mountain Snow Badge to assure optimal safety in snow and ice
