Are you looking for Tyre Labelling for your vehicle?

The EU Tyre Label with every tyre provides information regarding various features of the same. This label helps customers distinguish tyres better and help them make better choices. It also compels manufacturers to produce tyres that benefit car owners.

At Garth Tyre & Auto Services, every tyre for sale comes with the EU Tyre label. You can purchase tyres Cardiff from us without worrying that they will go against you.

A brief history of the EU Tyre Label

The EU Tyre Label, first introduced with the Energy Efficiency Action Plan sanctioned in 2009, aimed to reduce energy consumption by 20% by 2020. Not just car tyres, but various other products, home appliances, and even buildings fall under this plan.

You will find the following information about a tyre on a typical EU Tyre Label:

Fuel efficiency/rolling resistance

Rolling resistance is the energy required by a tyre to propel your vehicle forward. Hence, higher rolling resistance will lead to more fuel consumption and vice versa.

The EU Tyre Label outlines the fuel efficiency of a tyre with grades “A” to “G”. A tyre with an “A” rating will deliver high fuel economy, while one with a “G” rating is the opposite.

A “G” rated tyre will consume 6 litres more fuel than “A” rated tyres for every 625 miles you travel.

Braking/wet grip

The second information you get with an EU Tyre Label on car tyres Cardiff is its braking performance on wet surfaces.

The grades are similar to fuel efficiency – ranging from “A” to “G”. “A” rated tyres will have a shorter braking distance compared to “G” rated ones. The difference is around 18m or the length of 4 cars.

Noise levels

An EU Tyre Label displays the noise levels produced by a tyre in decibels. One black wave indicates significantly lower noise than a tyre with three black waves.

The difference between each black wave is 3dB; a tyre with three black waves will produce 6dB more noise than one with a single black wave.
