You have to pay attention to it.

The tyre marking ordinance defines the obligation to provide information on fuel efficiency, wet grip and external rolling noise of tyres.

The aim is a higher degree of safety, environmental protection and economy in road traffic by promoting fuel-saving, safe and quiet tyres. The marking allows consumers to inform themselves on a wider basis before purchasing tyres and to include these criteria in their purchase decision alongside those of other tyre tests.
The new EU ordinance for tyres also applies to winter tyres. The tested criteria for winter tyres are likewise rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise. An additional criterion especially for winter tyres – e.g., snow grip or braking on ice – is not taken into account. Special marking of winter tyres is currently being discussed within the appropriate EU committees.
The consumer must be aware of the fact that actual fuel consumption and safety in road traffic depend heavily on driving behaviour. Ecological driving can significantly reduce fuel consumption. The prescribed tyre pressure must be complied with and periodically
checked in order to reach optimum fuel efficiency and wet grip. Always pay strict attention to a sufficient braking distance.

  • Classes from G (lowest efficiency) to A (highest efficiency)
    Fuel savings basically depend on the vehicle and driving conditions. If the vehicle is fully equipped with tyres of class A, a consumption reduction of up to 7.5%* is possible in comparison with class G. For commercial vehicles, it may be even higher.
