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.
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.
