Since November 2012, on all new tires you can find the European tire label, as it is shown below:

European tire label

Fuel consumption

The upper left portion of the label provides information about the fuel consumption. The tire's rolling resistance affects the car fuel consumption. By reducing the tire rolling resistance we reduce the car fuel consumption and vice versa. More specifically, class A tires have a much better performance than class G tires.

Wet grip

The upper right portion of the label shows us information about the tire's grip on a wet road. Tires that have an excellent grip, have a shorter braking distance on a wet road. More specifically, class A tires have a better grip performance than class G tires.

Noise level

The lower portion of the label provides information about the tire's exterior noise. The tire's noise level is expressed in decibels (db).
