EUROPEAN Tyre labels

EU Regulation 1222/2009 will apply from 1st November 2012 for all passenger car, light and heavy commercial vehicles tyres produced from 1st July 2012 (Date of Production Code "2712").
The goal is to improve the safety, the economic and environmental efficiency of road transport by promoting fuel-efficient (related to rolling resistance) and safe tyres (related to wet braking) with low noise levels. This Regulation allows end-users to make more informed choices when purchasing tyres by considering this information along with other factors normally considered during the purchasing decision process.
