Tyre Labelling

  • External Noise: The external noise rating of a tyre is displayed as a small icon indicating the degree to which the tyre meets any current and new EU tyre noise legislation.
  • Wet Grip: The “wet grip” rating of a tyre tells you how quickly your car will come to a stop, when braking in wet weather. Like the fuel efficiency rating “wet grip” is displayed as a rating from A to G, with A being the highest grip and G being the lowest. A high wet grip rating means you can brake faster in dangerous situations - helping you avoid collisions and making your car safer to drive
  • FUEL EFFICIENCY: The fuel efficiency of a tyre will be displayed as a rating from A to G. Tyres rated “A” for fuel efficiency are the most efficient and tyres rated “G” are the least efficient. Using fuel efficient tyres will significantly reduce your car’s fuel consumption making it a lot cheaper to operate.

How to read a tyre

The markings on the sidewall of the tyre mean the following things

  • 235 (Width): The width of the tyre in millimetres
  • 55 (profile): Height of the tyre sidewalls as a percentage of the width
  • R: (radial): This means the type of tyre. Other letters you may see are ZR
  • 17: (Diameter): 17 is the diameter of the tyre’s inner rim. It is always expressed in inches. The number varies between 10 and 23 inches for passenger vehicle's.
  • 99 (Load Index): This is an index of the maximum load carrying capacity per tyre at the speed designated by the speed symbol
  • W (speed index): The last letter indicates the maximum speed for the tyre at full load. W corresponds to a maximum speed of 270 km/h. This should generally be higher than your vehicle's maximum speed, however, there are exceptions for winter tyres and exemptions in some countries.
