New tyre labeling comes into force on 1st november 2012
From 1 November 2012, all tyres produced on or after July 1st 2012 must carry, or be accompanied by, the new labelling information to help you compare brands more easily.
You will be able to compare tyres in three catergories easily with the new label.
This part of the label covers Fuel economy
See this diagram to see how a tyre performs on fuel consumption. Fuel-efficiency is graded from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient).
Save up to £110 or 80 litres of fuel over the life of the tyres. That’s for a car fitted with four A-rated tyres driving at 50mph – it uses 7.5%1 less fuel than with G-rated tyres.
Results can vary with type of car or climatic conditions but the performance gaps are proven
Compare braking on wet roads
This chart grades a tyre on how well it brakes in wet conditions. Performance scales from A (the safest, stopping in the shortest distances) down to G (least safe, with longest braking distances).
Stop up to 4 car lengths shorter. For a car fitted with four A-rated tyres driving at 50 mph, stopping distance can be up to 18 metres or 30%1 shorter than with G-rated tyres
Compare external noise level
This diagram shows you a tyre’s noise level in decibels (dB). The 3-wave pictogram tells you
how it rates in relation to future European mandatory limits. Tyre noise heard outside the car doesn’t necessarily relate to what you hear inside the car.
3 black waves = Noisier tyre
. Level greater than the future limit but complies with today’s noise regulation
2 black waves = Average tyre
. Noise level equal to or below future limit by up to 3 dB (A)
1 black wave = Low noise tyre
. Noise level 3 dB (A) or more below future noise limit
3dB doesn’t sound much but it is actually double the noise level!
