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.

01.06.2022fromNeil Cooper These tyres replaced Continental Contact tyres that were 8 years old, still had some tread on them but the sidewalls were cracking. We wanted All-Season tyres because the roads around us are slippery with mud in the winter. Very happy so far, there is a particular stretch of road we would avoid because the Contis set up a cabin resonance at about 300Hz and with the Celsiuses the noise is much reduced. Ride comfort is a bit better, dry and wet grip seems to be slightly better and muddy road grip is definitely better. Fuel consumption on our A/B/C road journeys is about the same. Can't properly comment on snow grip as we haven't had any, but Tyretest.com insist we put in a rating!
With regard to my experience of the life of Toyo tyres, I fitted a set of Toyo Proxes TR1-R to my Mazda MX-5 eight years ago and they show no sign of cracking.
I would buy these again if they were available at the competitive prices I was able to obtain on mytyres.com. Delivery was fast with no ciustoms delays ....which is of course now a risk for any tyres not already in a UK warehouse than to the post-Brexit need for customs paperwork.
03.01.2022fromMark I drive predominantly on dirt tracks and the tyres have held there own esspecially for the price. I wanted to get a tyre that was good on road also. With 2 younger children i wanted the ability to stop and control in the wet.
Very good tyre and very little wear for the usage. Will buy again next year.
