The EU Tyre label is designed to show information regarding three main criteria - wet grip, fuel efficiency and exterior noise. Anyone buying a tyre should be shown the tyre label before so you can understand more about the tyre's performance prior to purchase.
However, at Continental we believe there are many other important performance factors to consider when choosing a tyre. We work to develop safe tyres that perform when you need them to, and that's why we supply our tyres to testers who independently review the tyres performance in many conditions including:
Tyre tests are regularly undertaken by well regarded consumer organisations and automotive magazines in both the UK and throughout Europe. We believe published tyre tests take these performance factors into account and therefore are an excellent source of independent information regarding the total performance of a tyre.
