What is the EU tire label?
European Regulation (EC) no. 1222/2009 requires that all tires for passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles and buses that are produced after June 2012 should carry a sticker or be accompanied by a clearly visible label at the point of sale. Based on three aspects, the label gives a better insight into the tire's characteristics.
Tire tread depth
Tires will always remain the determining factor in the contact between the car and the road surface. The optimum functioning of tires is strongly influenced by their tread depth.
