Deciding what new tyres you need to fit on your vehicle can be baffling because there are so many to chose from. But do you know about the tyre labelling law which gives you the chance to make a much more informed choice about which new tyres to chose?
The tyre label that now accompanies all new tyres is similar to the energy label already used on white goods such as washing machines and fridges. The tyre label carries three key pieces of information about the new tyres.
1. Wet Grip – the most important safety characteristics of a tyre. New tyres with good wet grip have a shorter stopping distance in the rain.
2. Fuel Consumption – this relates to the rolling road resistance, the less rolling resistance the better the fuel economy.
3. External noise – this measures the amount of noise made by a tyre when it rolls along the road surface. The tyres exterior noise is expressed in decibels (dB) and is depicted by a series of black waves.
At etyres Wymondham we have found that the new tyres labelling system has made it much easier for customers to get to grips with the characteristics offered by the tyres they are considering buying. Ultimately the aim is to help motorists make the right choice of new tyres to suit their vehicle, personal needs, driving style and budget.
For example, a 205/55/16V Bridgestone EP001S has an A rating for fuel economy, A rating for wet grip, and has two black waves which indicates a noise level of 70dB while a Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance tyre has a low noise level of 68dB.
The whole experience of buying tyres from etyres Wymondham could not be simpler. All you need to do is look up your tyre size by using the box on the left and then find the tyre with the best labeling and price to suit you. You can order online or by calling etyres Wymondham on 01953 861330 or 07810561031 and we will arrange a time and location to suit you to come and fit your new car tyres.
