How to decode a tyre label?

A tyre label mainly consists of three types of information: fuel efficiency, wet grip, and noise emission. Here is a detailed understanding of these parameters.

Fuel efficiency: This is denoted by letters ranging from A to E. A-rated tyres deliver the best fuel efficiency, courtesy of reduced rolling resistance, and are marked in Green. On the other hand, E-rated tyres deliver the lowest fuel efficiency and are marked in Red.

The difference in output between A- and E-rated tyres is nearly 7.5% in terms of fuel efficiency.

Wet grip: This rating depends on the stopping distance on wet surfaces. Tyres are rated between A and E. The ones rated ‘A’ deliver the best wet grip performance, while tyres rated ‘E’ deliver the worst wet grip.

Noise: External noise emission by tyres is now rated between ‘A’ and ‘C’. While A-rated tyres emit noises measuring between 67dB and 71dB, C-rated tyres are the noisiest (72dB-76dB).
