EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

13.01.2011fromJez Almost the only brand left in the UK and I'd never heard of them, but I purchased anyway. They are excellent, almost as quiet as the standard Pirelli summer tyres + excellent grip in the snow, ice and slush.
05.12.2010fromERic 1984 Very impressive for the money. This tyre was all that was available to fit my car, normally I prefer named brands. Yet it has surpassed all my expectations and performs far better than I expected. Would certainly purchase again as it's excellent value for money.
13.07.2010fromJon Marshall This tyre is fantastic... I drive to ski slopes every weekend in Winter and it has helped keep me on the safe. Also my parent live off road with a 1 in 5 gradient track even with 40 cms of snow this tyre got the xtrail up the hill.
09.07.2010fromSteve R First time i've used winter tyres (I am in the UK don't normally need them but was a bad winter)After a nasty experience on black ice fitted the Master steel Winter + tyres. Grip on Ice very good, excellent in snow. Slight increase in tyre noise but acceptable. Would buy again.
