We’d like to ask you for 5 minutes of your time to help us with a new feature that is coming to the world of tyres. From 2012 every tyre will have a label on it which shows how it performs against certain criteria.
To begin the process, please click the "Begin This Survey" button below
Please remember that these are relative measures of performance. An ‘A’ rating is an exceptionally high performing tyre in a given category. This does not mean that tyres rated ‘D’ or below are poor tyres or deliver a notably poor performance might adversely impact driving. It means that they are less good than an ‘A’ or ‘B’ tyre in that area of performance but might well have other compensating factors which make them suitable for other types of driving styles or conditions.
Which of the two tyres below would you choose? For more information on the labels, read the key at the bottom of this page.
Which of the three tyres below would you choose? For more information on the labels, read the key at the bottom of this page.
Thank you for completing this survey. Your responses are very valuable and will help us implement the new labelling in 2012.
This is the measure of fuel efficiency – A and B are for tyres which have a low rolling resistance and mean your car uses less fuel. Tyres rated F or G will use more fuel in the same driving conditions.
This is a measure of Wet Grip - a rating of A or B means that this tyre will stop your car more quickly on a wet road. The lower ratings (F or G) will mean that the car takes more distance to stop on a wet road.
The final measure is road noise. This means how noisy a tyre is over the road surface. Low readings (at the top) mean a quieter tyre, louder readings (at the bottom) mean a more noisy tyre.
