Robust and economical
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tyre will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tyres deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing all the way down to class E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tyre, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A down to C.
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tyres only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tyres.

Professional tyre regrooving is a sensible and economical option to prolong the life of your tyre. In fact, regrooving pays off twofold: firstly, because you can drive the tyre for longer, and secondly because the lower profile thickness reduces rolling resistance, which in turn reduces fuel consumption.
On top of that are the environmental benefits. A tyre that can go longer before being replaced saves valuable resources, the tyre must of course be labelled as regroovable in which to exploit this added potential fully without damaging the casing.
