What is the correct tire size for my vehicle?
Tyre labels begin with 3 digits followed by a '/' and then another 2 digits.
The first 3 digits are the tyre width in mm. The following 2 digits are the relative percentage of height to width.
Always refer to the vehicle owner's manual to identify the right tyre size for your vehicle.
EU Tyre label description
EU tyre labels cover 3 criteria.
- Fuel efficiency: Grade A is the best and grade G is the worst. The difference between them translates to up to 7.5% fuel consumption.
- Wet grip: Grade A is the best and grade G is the worst. The difference between them translates to up to 18 metres braking distance.
- Noise: 1 wave means ‘Quiet’ (at least 3dB below the European limit); 2 waves means ‘Moderate’ (between European limit and 3dB below); and 3 waves means Noisy (above European limit).
