Breakdown of the label
Fuel efficiency/rolling resistance
A tyre which is more fuel efficient helps you to reduce your driving costs and CO2 emissions. It is rated from A to G, A being the best in fuel effiency and G being the worst
Wet grip/braking performance
Wet braking performance is a critical safety feature and relates to how quickly you will be able to stop in wet conditions.
Tyres play a crucial role in a vehicles stopping distance and those with excellent wet grip have shorter braking distances on slippery roads, which is essential for keeping you safe in the rain.
Noise emission/exterior noise
What is it?
The final element of the new tyre label measures the amount of noise made by a tyre when it rolls along the road surface.
The tyres exterior noise is expressed in decibels (dB) and is depicted by a series of black waves.
