Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: EU tyre label, objectives

Reducing fuel consumption
Increasing road safety
Reducing traffic noise
The EU tyre label provides the end-user with important information on the properties of the tyre. It does not illustrate, however, all decisive safety criteria.
The explanation of other properties of the tyre may influence the decision to purchase.
The customer should be advised of the limited information on the label of tyre properties, such as no information concerning winter properties for winter tyres.
Tyre tests are another source of information for specialist dealers and end-users.

Aquaplaning properties
Driving stability
Steering precision
Service life
Braking properties
Behaviour in winterly conditions
