What is the tyre label?

First introduced in 2012, the tyre label provides consumers across Europe with essential information on fuel efficiency, safety and noise by detailing the tyres’ rolling resistance, wet grip, and external rolling noise. By using this common scale, the aim of the EU tyre label is to make it easier for consumers to make an informed choice when buying new tyres. As of the 1st May 2021, the revised tyre label came into effect.
