You need good tyres to drive safely. They affect the steering, braking and acceleration of your vehicle. Faulty tyres work less efficiently and don’t last as long; they could also result in a heavy fine and penalty points on your licence.
Where to find your tyre size:
Remember that tyres fitted to your vehicle may not actually be the correct ones for your vehicle.
If in doubt call us on 01726 814400 we can easily check and advise you.
It’s against the law to have:
- Car tyres with a tread worn to below 1.6mm
- A mix of radial and cross ply tyres
- Tyres with cuts, lumps, bulges or tears
Understanding EU tyre labelling legislation
All new tyres must meet European standards for load/speed performance, shown by an ‘E’ or ‘e’ mark on the sidewall.
Similar to labels already used for white goods (fridges, freezers and dishwashers) the tyre label provides objective and comparable information for 3 key areas relating to tyre safety, performance and environmental impact.
Fuel efficiency / rolling resistance
A rolling tyre deforms and dissipates energy. The energy that’s lost is known as rolling resistance and directly impacts on fuel consumption and the environment. With lower rolling resistance, the tyre uses less energy, less fuel and in turn, less Co2.
Graded A (most efficient) to G (least efficient).
Wet Grip / Braking performance
Tyres with excellent wet grip have shorter braking distances on slippery roads, essential for keeping you safe in the rain. These ratings are measured from the distance travelled by a car after braking at 50mph in the wet. There’s roughly 30% shorter braking distance between best and worst class for a full set of tyres fitted to an average car.
Graded A (shortest braking distance) to G (longest braking distance)
External Rolling noise
A tyres exterior noise grading is expressed in decibels (dB) and accompanied by one, two or three sound waves on the label.
Graded 1 wave (quieter tyre) to 3 waves (louder tyre)
