Other performance criteria

The EU tyre label is a useful guide to three important aspects of tyre performance. However, there are additional criteria you should consider when choosing truck tyres.

Important factors include:

  • mileage
  • retreading
  • durability
  • stone holding
  • dry handling
  • traction
  • internal noise
  • braking on snow and ice
