Under new European Regulation (EC) No. 1222/2009,all new tyres for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles produced for sale in Europe will require a performance label for consumers to view and compare before purchase.
Each tyre manufacturer will be responsible for testing their own products using a strict set of guidelines under regulation and monitoring from their respective EU member state. As a consumer, you will now have a much clearer understanding of the products you are purchasing and be able to confidently compare tyres before purchase.
The Tyre Label Information for all Passenger Car / 4x4 / Van and Truck, that is supplied by R H Claydon can be found on our products page, and all our Invoices where applicable.
