Runflat tyres have reinforced sidewalls that reduce deformation if the tyre sustains damage or a puncture; they can thus continue to be driven for at least a further 80 km at a maximum speed of 80 km/h. Falken Runflat Tyres combine this ‘limp-home’ mode with top performance in all areas. Incidentally, manufacturers specify that runflat tyres must be used with a tyre pressure monitoring system because the tyres are so effective that drivers may not actually notice their tyre has a puncture.
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
Falken Tyre Europe GmbH is the European subsidiary of Japanese tyre manufacturer Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd. From its headquarters in Offenbach
am Main, Germany, Falken Tyre Europe oversees the marketing of a complete portfolio of tyres for cars, trucks, vans and SUVs as supplier of OEM products
and for the European aftermarket. The company has built up a sales network of around 8,000 tyre dealers throughout Europe, which act as our partners for
sales and fitting of our quality products.
