On 1st November 2012, the EU regulation on labelling of tyres is applicable. The label provides information on fuel efficiency, wet grip and external rolling noise through clear pictograms. The label will allow consumers to make informed choices when buying tyres, ranked on a scale from A (best) to G (bad).

The Regulation (EC) No 1222/2009 on the labelling of tyres (amended by Regulation 228/2011 and Regulation 1235/2011) aims to provide end-users of vehicles with clear and relevant information about the quality of the tyre, and to guide them towards choosing a product which is more fuel efficient, has better wet braking and is less noisy.
