EU tyre label
Safety, savings and environmental efficiency
Starting in November 2012, buying new tyres in the European Union will be made easier by the new tyre labels that are similar to the energy labels for household appliances. The labels will guide consumers towards acquiring tyres that are of higher quality and, therefore, safer. In the future, the classifications will be clearly visible in all tyre-related materials and at points of sale.
The classification criteria simplify and guide the tyre purchase decision. Standardised classification information is available to consumers on a label attached to the tread or through another means of communication.
The new tyre label simplify the selection of tyres for consumers. Although the new label make it easier to compare tyre models, you should also support your decision by consulting the following, for example: tyre retail experts, independent magazine test articles and tyre manufacturers.
