EU Tire Labels For Truck and Bus Tires

EU tire labels help you choose SAFER AND MORE FUEL-EFFICIENT TIRES

New EU tire label requirements will be widened to cover also truck and bus tires starting May 1, 2021.



The label renewal aims to make the choice for safer, eco-friendlier and fuel-efficient tires even easier.
The new label includes a classification for rolling resistance, wet grip and external rolling noise. The classes in wet grip and fuel efficiency are renewed to be similar to those of other household appliances. The labels will include a scale from A to E. In addition, there is a new way of marking noise class with letters from A to C, and the decibel level must also be mentioned.

Tires approved for severe snow conditions (3PMSF) can include information on snow grip whereas the ice grip marking used with passenger car tires, is not applicable for truck and bus tires. The new label includes a QR code that can be scanned to see more information on the tire in EPREL, European Product Registry for Energy Labelling.
