Tyre Labels to Show Fuel Efficiency, Safety and Noise

According to the European Parliament’s  Industry Committee,  Tyre buyers will be better informed about their fuel-efficiency, safety and noise performance thanks to a mandatory tyre label proposal they voted through on Tuesday.  Like the European energy label, the tyre label will use fuel-efficiency classes ranging from best-performance (green “A” class) to worst (red “G” class).
