On November the 1st 2012 the European Union brought in a legal requirement on tyre labelling for manufacturers and retailers of tyres. All labels must display fuel consumption, wet grip and noise classification for that tyre.
Each label includes a classification from the best performance (green Category ‘A’) to the worst performance (red category ‘G’).
All tyres must have an EU Tyre Label displayed on it when it is manufactured and sent out to the garage or the customer.
This indicates the energy lost when a tyre is rolling ie. rolling resistance. The lower the rolling distance the less fuel is consumed and less CO2 emissions are released.
Wet Grip (Braking Performance)
Indicates how effective the tyre is on wet roads. Tyres that have a good grip in the wet will have shorter braking distances on wet roads. A indicates the best grip on wet roads, whereas G means very little grip in wet conditions.
This is the exterior noise grading in decibels. On the black waves, one coloured indicates the best noise level at 3db below the legal limit in the future. When all three waves are coloured it means a high noise level.
Amazing service. I was left stranded with a flat tyre and Jon arrived within 15 minutes and was able to repair it. Friendly and reliable, I won't be going anywhere else for tyres. Thank you so much, I would have been stuck without your help.Lynne Hughes - 5 ★ Google

Contacted this company at 4pm on a weekday as noticed i had a puncture and spoke to Jon. Needed the car to be back on road for work at 7am the following day, from that first phone and 5.30pm the tyre was replaced and car was back on road. Absolutely top notch service and will definately call this company again. You have a new customer and will definately recommend. The company is local which makes it better, thank you.GarethL-79 - 5 ★ Yell
