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.

09.06.2023 from Yogi Best tyres to date , the grip especially at the beginning is so good I was cutting corners without any loss of control
24.02.2023 from Larry As a London taxi driver I spend a lot of time in central London traffic, but I live 40 miles away and also spend a lot of time on the motorway. These tyres have been brilliant in all weather’s include a few weeks of snow and ice. Well worth the money and after 50,000 km there’s still a lot of tread left.
31.05.2022 from Leon Tyres planed for winter. But this year without snow. Hope all could be fine
12.08.2021 from EMILIAN ENESCU Very good tyres for the price, I had before Goodyear and the differences are not noticeable to much. The goodyear tyres had better braking grip but Star Performance is almost the same.
