How to understand a tyre label?

Prior knowledge about these labels helps make an informed decision when you buy car tyres.

The labels currently include three icons that denote three features –

    • Fuel economy
    • Wet grip rating
    • Noise rating
    • Fuel economy

It contains a colour-coded scale with an alphabet, which ranges from A to G. Tyres with the best fuel efficiency have a green ‘A’ rating. On the other hand, tyres with lower fuel efficiency receive a red ‘G’ rating. Please note that the rating D is not used for passenger cars.

Wet grip

A tyre’s wet grip ability is rated on a scale of A to F. Here, ‘A’ is the highest rating while ‘F’ stands as the lowest. Passenger cars are not rated D or G.

Noise levels

    • The EU rates a tyre’s external noise emissions in decibels. You can identify it from the symbol with three ‘sound wave’ bars:
    • One black sound wave signifies a quiet tyre with 3dB or more noise.
    • Two black waves indicate that noise is moderate and meets the current regulations.

Three black waves mean that the tyre is noisy, and therefore, above the permissible limit.
