Decoding the EU tyre label
- Wet Grip
Reputed brands sell models with adequate wet grip that is a crucial metric of their safety. Wet grip is rated from ‘A’ to ‘G’.
Whenever you are buying car tyres Southampton from Auto Trade Tyres Ltd. , ensure that you purchase units which have grades closer to ‘A’. Models with high wet grip are often a bit more expensive; however, they also provide impeccable safety.
- Fuel Efficiency
It is perhaps the most critical metric that is measured. It is also denoted on a scale of ‘A’ to ‘G.’ Models from category ‘A’ consume the least amount of fuel every kilometre you drive; units with grades of ‘D’ and above consume more fuel.
- Noise Emission
The EU tyre label denotes noise emission with 3 black waves. Any tyre which has a single wave has the lowest decibel rating, between 67 and 71.
