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.

06.02.2013fromPaul Hemmerdinger Excellent tyre always feels like they are gripping the road in all weather conditions.
Car stops well, will be using this tyre choice again.
09.12.2011fromTim Good all rounder, ideal for normal all weather driving.
19.01.2011fromAlexis Bad sense of steering. Once I went a few meters in very poor mud, then I moved about 4-5Km with low speed -because of courves-to have them clean again.No noises,very good grip in dry conditions. not so good in wet.Snow traction bad.
05.11.2010fromRodders Front tyres scrubbed on edges bald on inside plenty tread left in centre inspite of raising pressure to max for last 6000Km. Not normally a heavy tyre wearing driver. Bad suspension set up or bad tyres??? Suspension set up not covered by nissan warranty so having to pay to get it checked. Replacing worn pair as rear look close to new to keep a 'set' and will rotate often to even out wear and decide if worth buying again after front suspension re-alligned.
