The truck tyre label gives you details about the manufacturer and internal product code, as well as adescription of the tyre size and class.
Tyres are graded on four performance criteria:
For fuel efficiency and wet grip, performance is expressed in five classes ranging from:
A (the most efficient) to E (the least efficient).
For noise, the value is presented on the label together with the letters A, B, and C (A being lowest noiserating and C is the highest).
Fuel consumption is influenced by the rolling resistance of the tyres caused by tyre deformation when rotating, resulting in energy losses in theform of heat. The higher the deformation, the higher the tyre rolling resistance andconsequently the more fuel is requred to move the vehicle forward. In other words,lower rolling reistance means lower fuel consumption andtherefore lower vehicle emissions, including CO2.
The label displays different “rolling resistance” grades, where A is the most “fuel eficient" and E the least eficientin class. The black arrow next tohe grading indicates the perormance evel of the product. Customers should be made aware that actual fue savings and road satery depeno heavily on the behavior of drivers. It should be noted that
environmentally friendly driving can significantly reduce fuel consumption; thus, tyre pressure needs to be correct andregularly checked for optimum fuel efficiency.
The most important role of a tyre is to provide safety -in al weather conditons. Wet traction or grip is one of the most important performancecharacteristics of any tire.
There is typically a performance trade-off when combining noise, fuel efficiency and a safety performance like wet gripThe labeling will allow customers to prioritise for themselves their preferred type of performance.The label displays a range of five grades, where tyres with an "A" provide the highest levels of wet grip, while "E" provide the lowest.
When the label has the 3PMSF symbol, it shows that the tyre has passed a regulated, objective test, indicating it has a minimum 25% better snow traction than a Standard Reference Test Tyre (SRTT)
Exterior tyre noise levels are split into three categories and measured indecibel (dB) in comparison with the EU Requlative noise levels (ECE117)
A = 3 dB less than the current EU limit value for this product
B = Compliant with the current EU limit value for this product
C = Non-compliant with the current EU limit value for this product
