The parameters that are considered while providing tyre labels to a tyre are as follows:
Fuel efficiency/Rolling resistance
Most of the drivers believe that it is only the engine that maintains the fuel efficiency of a car. But that is half true of a statement. The rolling resistance offered by the tyres is also highly responsible for the fuel efficiency of a vehicle. Therefore, tyres are labelled from A to G. A is on the good side while G is the bad side of the tyre for fuel-efficiency. If you are looking for a fuel-efficient tyre, make sure to buy a tyre with the grade of ‘A.”
Wet grip/Braking performance
Just like the grading of tyres on fuel efficiency, wet grip is also rated from A to G in the same manner. In case you drive mostly in wet conditions, ensure to buy a tyre with A rating. It will help your tyre with better braking distances. The tyre with A grade for wet grip is bound to have a lesser grade on fuel efficiency. Therefore, make sure to consider this trade-off before your purchase.
Noise emission/Exterior noise
The tyres are also rated on the noise emission levels they induce in the passenger’s compartment. The lesser the decibels level on the markings, the better the tyre in the reduction of noise.
