What is the EU tyre label?
European Regulation (EC) no. 1222/2009 requires that all tyres for passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles and buses that are produced after June 2012 should carry a sticker or be accompanied by a clearly visible label at the point of sale. Based on three aspects, the label gives a better insight into the tyre's characteristics.
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.
