Abstract [en]

The EU regulation (EC) 1222/2009 concerning tyre labelling has now been effective in Europe since 2012. This regulation specifies limits and mandatory label values for fuel efficiency (rolling resistance), safety (wet grip) and noise (external tyre/road noise level) for new tyres of categories C1, C2 and C3. The label values of these three parameters must be visible on each tyre on a specially designed sticker. The main purpose of this regulation has been to inform the customer about the performance of the tyre regarding the three properties. The paper will discuss the principle behind the tests for each of the properties and the experience so far. A wide range of measurements results, both road and laboratory measurements of noise and rolling resistance, are presented. For the regulation to be effective and fair, the correlation between labelled valued and on-road performance should be reasonably good. Unfortunately, the few studies conducted so far show a poor correlation between labelled values and road measurements. The reason for this lack of correlation may be related to the test track used for measurements and the measurement methods not always being the same. Furthermore, influence of temperature, load and tyre pressure as well as which tyres that are selected for labelling tests may contribute to the poor correlation. It is necessary to identify the problems and their causes and to rectify the problems, since it is believed that in principle the labelling system is an excellent tool to promote high quality tyres that are both safe and environmentally friendly. Possible improvements of the labelling system are discussed in the paper.
