Tyre label / efficiency classes
We sell car tyres as 'new' if they are no older than two years.
Within this time span, there are labelled (manufactured after 01/07/2012) and unlabelled (manufactured before 01/07/2012) tyres with the same item number by the same manufacturer available for purchase.
Tyres of the same item number can be combined onto one axle of a vehicle, regardless of whether or not they have a label, as they have identical efficiency classes. Each respective manufacturer provides us with a verification of this.
We are sent the efficiency class values for each tyre from the manufacturer along with the item number or the IP Code and we pass these directly on to the customer regardless of production date, unless the item is older than 2 years.
In this case, the following performance classes are valid:
Roll resistance: C, Wet grip: C, Noise emissions: 72 dB.
If the tyre was manufactured after 01/07/2012, the tyre label displayed to the left is valid.
Please note: manufacturers advise that the tyre label only offers a restricted overview of a tyre’s
performance, particularly in regards to winter tyres, as no form of performance in winter
conditions is displayed on the label.
