Decoding the EU tyre label
Wet grip performance of tyres is estimated within a range of A to G. The stopping distance after braking on a wet road differs by 2.5 meters between each rating.
Fuel efficiency is also estimated within a range of A to G, but is also colour-coded for better understanding. Therefore, an A-rated tyre with green colour label indicates that the unit is extremely fuel-efficient. On the other hand, a G-rated tyre with red colour will indicate poor fuel efficiency.
Noise levels of car tyres are indicated by 3 sound wave bars, as mentioned below.
- 1 bar: indicates that the unit is highly noise efficient, and the emission rate is below 3dB.
- 2 bars: indicate that the unit just fairly satisfies the current EU standards but may fail to meet future regulations.
- 3 bars: indicate that the unit is extremely noisy and does not meet the EU standards.
