The Medallion All Season tyres are well suited to meet the demands of all four seasons. Their modern v-profile layout coupled with their micro-sipe design makes them perfectly suited for winter. This unique tread feature also ensures that the tyres have optimum contact with the road in snowy and icy conditions. The two large linear grooves in the tread help to ensure that the water drainage on the tyre profile is good. This is essential for ensuring safe driving in all kinds of summer weather, in particular rain. Their high wet grip performance is attributed to the advanced silica tread compound, which also helps to significantly improve the tyre’s rolling resistance values. This also means that the individual demands of a wide range of vehicles are met; from small and compact cars right through to top of the line models.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

30.01.2019 from Trevor Swanson Really happy with tyres they have made a difference to the way car drives. Far more confident in it.
14.01.2019 from M J Harrison Tyres fitted in advance of MoT in May. Since then they drive well. Had no snow experience so far this year so no input till then.
