The 3/15/50 approach reflects the different numbers of performance criteria that our tires are tested for.
Introduced in 2012, the standardized EU tire label analyzes each tire under 3 key performance criteria:
Fuel efficiency – A measure of the tire’s rolling resistance, which has an impact on your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. Rated from A (highest rating) to G (lowest rating).:
Wet grip – A measure of the tire’s braking ability on wet roads. Wet grip is rated from A (highest rating) to F (lowest rating).:
External rolling noise – A measure of the external noise generated by the tire, in decibels. The black sound waves indicate the :
noise class of the tire, from 1 (quiet) to 3 (loud).
