SMOOTH ROLLING SAVES FUEL AND PRESERVES THE ENVIRONMENT
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

24.05.2023fromDanny Floyde Ive always liked nokians and when going on honeymoon to the arctic circle in north sweeden at christmas (driving from the uk) i didnt hesitate to buy more. Surrounded by studded tyres and other nordic snow tyres once into the snow these performed as good in everyway and i always felt in full control never actually needing the tyre chains despite -23C weather and many inches of snow fall, we rode snow mobiles on the same road we had been driving on without issues. I even somehow managed to drive across an ice covered parking lot that was impossible to walk on, was like glass, yet we drove across without issue, We made it up some really steep hills and unploughed side roads (front bumper acting as a snow plough, really shocked me how good they was) and still returned over 65mpg over the 5000 mile trip. The rear set has been on for around 25k km and still have plenty of tread left. The fronts being on around half that. As a member of 4x4 response (volunteer responders who help out in times of adverse weather) i love snow driving and was abit hesitant about taking my wifes 2wd car on such a trip when my 4x4 wasnt proving to be reliable enough but i needed not worry. Didnt need the snow chains or any of the extra equipement id been adamant we would need when not if we got stuck. But these tyres proved how good nokian really are and i was a lifelong fan before.

Excellent in ice and snow.
