EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.

Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.

Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

I bought 2 Falken FK452 275/40ZR17 & 2 Falken FK452 225/40ZR17 for my 2001 Porsche 986 Boxster. I had been running a Falken ZIEX ZE-912 195/55-16 on my GL1800 Goldwing for a number of years and was impressed with ride quality, build quality, & most of all its good adhesion. The tires on my Porsche are phenomenal. My p-car is a 150 mile per day daily driver. Lot's of twisties getting from the coast to the interior everyday. I do triple digit speeds on them daily. Can throw them into corners at 80-100+ on dry days and the same turns at 80+ with pouring rain. I love these tires! And when I think of the $ saved from buying a much more expensive tire, I am even more pleased. Besides Dunlops, these have some of the best adhesion out there IMHO. I believe the FK-452 is discontinued. I look forward to my next set of Falkens.

great tires extremely good in the rain I drive quite aggressively and they have surpassed my expectations I've been a falken user for many many years for street tires I wouldn't get anything else price performance and longevity I don't think they can be beat
