    Default Tyre efficiency labels

    Did not know this:

    Would come in pretty handy when trying to choose new tyres. Although TBH my wash machine has these and can't say I paid any notice when choosing.

    Tyre label / efficiency classes

    We (mytyres.co.uk)sell car tyres as 'new' if they are no older than two years.
    Within this time span, there are labelled (manufactured after 01/07/2012) and unlabelled (manufactured before 01/07/2012) tyres with the same item number by the same manufacturer available for purchase.
    Tyres of the same item number can be combined onto one axle of a vehicle, regardless of whether or not they have a label, as they have identical efficiency classes. Each respective manufacturer provides us with a verification of this.
    We are sent the efficiency class values for each tyre from the manufacturer along with the item number or the IP Code and we pass these directly on to the customer regardless of production date, unless the item is older than 2 years.
    We would like to point out explicitly that you may receive an item with this item number that does not have a tyre label attached to it as it was manufactured prior to 01/07/2012.
    In this case, the following performance classes are valid:
    Roll resistance: F, Wet grip: E, Noise emissions: 71 dB.
    If the tyre was manufactured after 01/07/2012, the tyre label displayed to the left is valid.
    Please note: manufacturers advise that the tyre label only offers a restricted overview of a tyre’s performance, particularly in regards to winter tyres, as no form of performance in winter conditions is displayed on the label.

    Default

    The labels are on the tyres
    These labels are useful on some goods, but have you ever looked at the labels on tyres prior to this change?
    However some retailers do include this information on the product description online, but there is no requirement to do so
    It will really only be of benefit if the information from the labels is also applied to product descriptions you can view online
