Tyre labeling is too vague for modern tyres
Brain twister labeling is fraternal against the taxidriver.: .RXP http://t.co/3ZC6K6aCDx
Tyre labeling does not affect tyre virtues
What do i mean ?. Manufacturers have always been torn between two things, Good grip or high mileage. it is very difficult to get the correct balance, we all know about the Michelin “X” when it came out ? it knocked the socks off mileage compared to all the other manufacturers, but also became famous for not been very good in the wet.
This is a great example of the imbalance that can take place between the two things that the tyre makers are trying to achieve. With today’s modern tyre testing techniques these companies have a much better chance of getting the balances correct. So much so that tyres can now be made for specific car models such as BMWs and Mercedes, who have their own specific ones to aid the cars performance.
What i am getting at is that in my opinion tyre labeling is not a good way of determining how good a tyre really is and is just another piece of bureaucracy that came from the European Union. The tyre companies are way ahead of these stupid labels, that really tell the motorist nothing. Also how true is the tyre labeling on imported economy brands ?
