Tyre Labelling on our website

New EU rules on the energy labelling of road tyres, highlighting primarily the fuel efficiency, safety and noise performance of new tyres, start to apply at consumer level from 1 May 2021. Where possible we are displaying these new labels on our site.

We also advertise tyres that were manufactured before this date and therefore can only display the previous label information that was supplied, this is just a transitioning period and soon enough all labels on our site will be standard.

The introduction of the new labels does not affect the physical properties of the tyres you purchase.



Below shows a detailed breakdown of the new Label. 


Fuel Efficiency

Rolling resistance has a direct impact on fuel consumption. A tyre's rolling resistance score ranges from A to E. Over the life of the tyre, fitting an A rated tyre could save you up to 6 litres more fuel every 625 miles - when compared to a E rated tyre.


Wet Grip

A tyre's wet grip capacity is expressed in Grades from A to E. The difference in braking distances between each grade is roughly 3m - an average car length. This makes average stopping distance between an A and E rated tyre 18m.
That's 4 car lengths.


External Rolling Noise

The exterior noise grade of a tyre is expressed in decibels - accompanied by one, two or three sound waves, with one wave being the best noise level performance. To achieve the best grade, a tyre’s noise level must be at least 3dB under the legal limit set by the EU.
