In 2012 the European Union introduced a new tyre label, in order to provide standardised information on 3 specific performances; fuel efficiency, wet grip and external rolling noise.
Tyre labelling for passenger cars and light trucks took effect from November 2012, for tyres on sale in the EU under European Regulation (EC/No. 1222/2009) which were
manufactured after 1 st July 2012.
The label is accompanied on the actual tyre and gives consumers useful information to
assist them when purchasing new tyres.
On the right you can find an example of the new EU tyre label. These graphics on the labeare similar as those already used for household appliances and more recently new cars.
