EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

12.07.2015 from Mr Francis not covered enough miles to comment but seem okay - perhaps could do with more of a shoulder to protect alloys more. Bit limited as they are one direction tyres but seem good value.
03.11.2014 from M Pitt Got fed up of paying almost £200 for continentals / good years that never wore out but got damaged by potholes.
So did some research online and these came out with good reviews.
So I bought two for the fronts - drove on them for a couple of months and was very impressed - could not tell the difference
So much so a couple of months later when the goodyear rears were fading I swapped them for Nexen N6000
At around £90 + fitting they are great tyres... no issues with them at all.
18.10.2014 from David Eyre Good all-round tyre, good grip in the wet. Tested on road and track. No noticeable road noise. Good value.
27.09.2014 from Peter Videan An exceptional quality dry weather tyre, particularly at your price!

What tyre size do you require? The exact size of a tyre can be found on its sidewall. The following chart shows you how to read a tyre size.
1. The width in mm 2. The height as the ratio between the width and the height in % 3. Construction type: "R"= radial (often seen), "D" or "-"= diagonal (rarely seen) 4. The required rim diameter (in inches) for this tyre 5. Load index 6. Speed index
