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.

26.08.2018 from Mike Bought these to replace the OEM Goodyear wranglers as they were avalaible, price and reviews were good, and the Goodyear’s wear wasn’t up to scratch in my opinion.
They didn’t transform the handling of the car, but it’s a 7 seat giant of a SUV and so not too sporty in the corners anyway. The grip in both dry and wet wasn’t significantly worse than the Goodyear’s, and probably a little better in all but dry conditions.
Had a few days use on snow / ice on treated and untreated roads, and combined with the electric wizardry of the Discovery, seemed to cope a lot better than the 1.8mm Goodyear’s i’d Just taken off. Whether the reed depth made more of an impact than brand i’m Not entirely sure.
Seem to be lasting well after 12,000m
I certainly would buy them again.
06.09.2015 from Mr Paul Hamilton I was a little worried about purchasing tyres from the internet at first, however mytyre were very professional and delivery was prompt, however I recommend you check your tyres carefully on delivery as one of my tyres was the wrong size, however it was rectified promptly. Although I paid for fitting which usually costs around £10 to £15 a tyre I still saved £180. The tyres were deliverd packaged and looked great, the EU standard efficiency marking was very helpful in choosing the tyres, I had great tyres and great service from Mytyre.
