The EU tire ratings can help you to make an informed choice when selecting tires. They work in a similar way to the energy ratings found on kitchen appliances.
Fuel efficiency. Fuel efficiency is a measure of the tyre's rolling resistance. A tyre with low rolling is more fuel efficient since it requires less energy to roll. Fuel efficiency is rated from A (highest rating) to E (lowest rating).
Wet Grip. Wet grip is a measure of tyre’s braking ability on wet roads. Wet grip is rated from A (highest rating) to E (lowest rating).
External noise. The external noise generated by the tyre, measured in decibels. The noise class is rated from A (quiet) to C (noisy).
EU ratings for a tire can differ from one size to the next. If you have not specified your full tire size, we display the range of values for all sizes of that particular tire.
We test our tires on over 50 aspects of tire performance in all types of road conditions. The additional performance ratings indicate the tire's capabilities in areas that are not addressed by the EU ratings.
