The Star Performer UHP 3 is a Touring Summer tyre for passenger cars. With its asymmetrical tread pattern, this tire is designed to deliver exceptional performance on the road. On tyretests it shows excellent aquaplaning resistance on wet roads and good dry handling. Noise is a strong quality of Star Performer UHP-3 - most dimensions have below average noise level values. With 32 available sizes ranging from 195/50 R15 to 315/35 R20, this tire caters to a variety of vehicles. Plus, it offers outstanding value for your money without compromising quality.
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.

Internal noise level
16.11.2021 from Jay Tyres are fine it youndrive taking it easy and not speeding about. So for me they are fine. Driving in the wet and braking it seems it takes longer to slow or stop. Other than that little more road noise especially on the motorway.
