TYRE LABEL ACCORDING TO REGULATION 2020/740
The new tyre energy label, active from May 1st, 2021, provides a common classification of tyres’ performance on rolling resistance, braking on wet surfaces and external noise. Additionally, it provides indicators for its performance on severe snow and ice. The label helps consumers to make informed decisions when buying tyres as they can easily compare and set their priority choice based on these given parameters.
The correct tyre pressure
Correct tyre pressure is crucial for safe and comfortable driving. A tyre can only perform at its best when it is able to ensure sufficient stability and load capacity. And that is where having the correct tyre pressure comes in.
Tyre tread depth
Tyres will always remain the determining factor in the contact between the car and the road surface. The optimum functioning of tyres is strongly influenced by their tread depth.
Storing summer and winter tyres
The lifespan and performance of tyres can be increased by correct handling and proper storage when not in use. It is very important therefore that everyone is aware of how to do this.
When should I replace my tyres?
It makes good sense to have your tyre specialist regularly check your tyres. This allows defects to be identified at an early stage, which can extend tyre lifespan and prevent many dangerous situations.
