Fuel Efficiency

The energy lost when a tyre is rolling is expressed as 'rolling resistance' Lower rolling resistance reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions

  1. A is the highest performance tyre
  2. G is currently the least performing

Wet Grip

Provides you with information on the tyre's grip on wet roads Tyres with excellent grip in the wet have shorter braking distances on wet roads

  1. A indicates the highest wet grip performance
  2. G indicates the lowest wet grip performance

Noise Levels

  1. The tyre's exterior noise grading is expressed in decibels
  2. One black wave indicates the best noise level at least 3dB below the future legal limit
  3. Three black waves indicate the weakest performance
  4. New legal noise limits will be introduced between 2012 and 2016
