Are you looking for Tyre Labelling for your vehicle?

tyre-labelling

Tyre labelling was mandated following EU legislation and was brought into action from 1st November 2012. It was introduced to inform consumers more about tyre safety and its impact on the environment. A new European tyre label will come into force from 1st May 2021 as the UK Government has embarked on “improving vehicle safety and environmental compliance”.

At Turnpike Tyres, we stock an extensive range of car tyres Fareham, which includes budget, premium and mid-range units from all the leading brands in the world.

Understanding the EU tyre label

The EU tyre label rates units on the basis of fuel efficiency, wet grip and external rolling noise.

  • Fuel Efficiency : Fuel efficiency refers to the amount of fuel consumed while driving, which depends on the energy used by the tyres to roll.

The fuel efficiency rating ranges between A and G and is colour-coded. 

  • A = Highest fuel economy
  • G = Lowest fuel economy
  • Rating D isn’t applicable to passenger cars

The difference from A to G is equivalent to nearly 7.5% decreased fuel economy.

  • Wet grip : Wet grip refers to a tyre’s braking capacity on wet roads.

The wet grip is rated between A and F. D and G aren’t applicable to passenger cars.

  • External noise : A tyre’s noise level is measured in decibels (dB) and is depicted in the form of sound waves. External noise refers to the sound that generates when a vehicle runs in its normal driving condition.

The rating is as follows :

1 wave: Quiet (Under the EU limit)

2 wave: : Moderate (between the EU limit and below 3dB)

3 wave: Maximum Noise levels (above the EU limit)
