eric roberts‘s insight: Since this post was first release. Hence, I have now changed my opinion. As a result of  regarding tyre labeling. For this reason, at first i did not think that the buying public. Would take any notice of the tyre grading’s. But now we are getting many drivers. That are comparing the makes of tyres. Thus, before they make their purchase. Consequently, I did not think that this would ever happen. Therefore, I thought that most people would  buy on price alone. But I admit that i was wrong. I would say that out of all of our  purchasing customers about a third now compare the Tyre labeling ratings. We now show all the different Tyre labeling ratings of all the tyres that we offer on our website, so that our customers can look at the different labels and make a more informed choice of tyre for their cars.

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 ?

Tyre labeling

Tyre labeling with the tyre attributes are now becoming more and more popular with the public and to my surprise some drivers are specifically targeting the best advice from these labels and it will make the tyre manufacturers open their eyes to making a better product.
