Keep your car up and running!
Keeping your tyres in good condition is vital for the smooth running of the car and for the safety of the driver and the passengers. For optimum performance, check your tyre pressure every two months. And to look after your tyres better, you need to know them.
And to do this, it’s important to know how to read the size and label of your car’s tyres:
How do you read tyre sizes?
Size 205/45R17 88V (example)
205 – Width (tyre width in mm) 45 – Aspect Ratio (tyre height pertains to 45% of the width) R – Symbol for radial tyre 17 – Diameter of the rim in inches 88 – Load index V – Speed rating
How do you read the tyre’s label?
Energy Efficiency: The rolling resistance influences fuel consumption. The lower the rolling resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and the more reduced the carbon emissions are. The energy efficiency difference between class A and G tyres may be as much as 7.5% for a light passenger vehicle consuming an average of 0.65l every 100km.
Adhesion on wet surface: Braking response is a vital element for the performance of your tyres on wet surfaces and it is essential for your safety. The difference in braking distance between Class A and Class G tyres may be as much as 30%.
External noise: external noise levels are measured in Decibels (dB) and compared with the new external noise levels for European tyres. Note: external noise is related with the internal noise of the vehicle.
