    Default New tyre legislation

    As of the 1st of November new tyre legislation came into effect detailling

    tyre noise
    wet grip
    fuel efficiency

    by law all retailers must inform you of the rating on the tyres that you buy the labelling looks like those on fridges and freezers ... But for example the difference on a A rated fuel tyre to a G rated one could be the difference of roughly £110 a year on fuel ( 10000 miles at £1-40 per litre) so it's worth being informed and making sure you buy a tyre that's suitable for your needs

    personally with the inclement British weather I would rather have a grip efficient tyre over any other rating

    I've been asking about this when purchasing tyres for the last 12 months maybe. One for the garages alerted me to this when i was complaining about road noise. You'll be surprised which tyres come out on top condidering some premium brands spend millions of pounds researching these areas!
