  • Different ratings in EU Tyre Label

An EU Tyre Label primarily consists of three classifications:

  1. Rolling resistance: It signifies the fuel efficiency of a set of tyres
  2. Braking performance: Indicates the wet grip
  3. Noise emission: Exterior noise produced by your car while driving.
  • Rolling resistance

Rolling resistance of a tyre is the energy lost during its movement. It impacts your car’s CO2 emission and fuel consumption. If rolling resistance of a set of tyres is low, the energy lost is also less. Thus, the fuel economy of your vehicle improves, reducing CO2 emissions considerably.

The EU Tyre Label rates the rolling resistance with grades. The highest grade, ‘A’, signifies the lowest rolling resistance, thus the best fuel efficiency. Similarly, lowest grade ‘G’ shows the lowest performance regarding fuel economy. Whenever you buy tyres from Totton Tyre & Exhaust, you should check out these ratings first. It will help you find the most fuel-efficient tyres for your vehicle.

  • Braking distance

It indicates the grip of the tyre on wet roads. Similar to rolling resistance ratings, braking distance of the tyre is also rated in anA to G scale.

  • Noise Emission

An EU tyre label displays the exterior noise of a tyre in decibels. It is graphically represented with the help of three sound waves. Single sound wave indicates best noise performance. A quieter tyre is considered environmentally friendly.
