EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

06.02.2013 from Paul Hemmerdinger Excellent tyre always feels like they are gripping the road in all weather conditions.
Car stops well, will be using this tyre choice again.
09.12.2011 from Tim Good all rounder, ideal for normal all weather driving.
19.01.2011 from Alexis Bad sense of steering. Once I went a few meters in very poor mud, then I moved about 4-5Km with low speed -because of courves-to have them clean again.No noises,very good grip in dry conditions. not so good in wet.Snow traction bad.
05.11.2010 from Rodders Front tyres scrubbed on edges bald on inside plenty tread left in centre inspite of raising pressure to max for last 6000Km. Not normally a heavy tyre wearing driver. Bad suspension set up or bad tyres??? Suspension set up not covered by nissan warranty so having to pay to get it checked. Replacing worn pair as rear look close to new to keep a 'set' and will rotate often to even out wear and decide if worth buying again after front suspension re-alligned.
