FUEL EFFICIENCYLower Rolling Resistance saves fuel. The values A to E indicate the effect on fuel consumption from low to high respectively. The difference between an ! and E rating could mean a reduction of fuel consumption of up to 7.5% for passenger car tyres.
WET GRIPIn the category 'Grip on a wet road surface', the classification A to E indicates the relative braking distance respectively from short to long on a wet road surface. A set of A-rated tyres will brake up to 18 metres shorter than a set of E-rated tyres.
NOISE RATINGThe exterior Noise level is measured in dB, divided into three classes, ranging from A to C, whereas A stands for low-Noise and C for high Noise pollution for the environment. NB: External Noise does not fully correlate with the interior noise of the vehicle.
SNOW GRIPIf applicable, the ‘Three Peak Mountain Snowflake’ symbol (also referred to as 3PMSF) indicates that the product has been classified as a tyre for the use in severe snow conditions in accordance with strict European legislations (R117). All Vredestein winter and all-season tyres show the 3PMSF marking.
ICE GRIPTyres with Ice Grip classification are specifically designed for driving on roads with ice and packed snow and may only be used in extreme weather circumstances.
