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.

14.02.2015 from Marius Radoi good tyres, good price.
there are not so good as summer on dry but are good enough. noise level is low, maneuverability very good and resistance the same.
01.10.2012 from Mihai T Good tyre in snow,very low tyre wear.
24.02.2012 from Edward Excellent price/performance tyre. Rules in wet conditions, very good on ice and snow.
05.12.2010 from Brian I bought these tyres after a hard and long winter last year and getting stuck numerous times . I can not believe the difference these tyres have made this winter , I have not got stuck once and that's in 1ft of snow up here in Northumberland on a remote farm . The only limiting factor is the ground clearance of my car , I highly recommend these tyres you will be amazed of the grip on deep snow and ice
