We sell car tyres as 'new' if they are no older than two years
Within this time span, there are labelled (manufactured after 01/07/2012) and unlabelled (manufactured before 01/07/2012) tyres with the same item number by the same manufacturer available for purchase.
Tyres of the same item number can be combined onto one axle of a vehicle, regardless of whether or not they have a label, as they have identical efficiency classes. Each respective manufacturer provides us with a verification of this.
We are sent the efficiency class values for each tyre from the manufacturer along with the item number or the IP Code and we pass these directly on to the customer regardless of production date, unless the item is older than 2 years.
We would like to point out explicitly that you may receive an item with this item number that does not have a tyre label attached to it as it was manufactured prior to 01/07/2012.
In this case, the following performance classes are valid:
Roll resistance: F, Wet grip: B, Noise emissions: 70 dB.
If the tyre was manufactured after 01/07/2012, the tyre label displayed to the left is valid.
Choosing the right tyre depends on your vehicle, driving style and the conditions you will be driving in. It is also important to take into account how much mileage you do when choosing and buying tyres. If you do a lot of mileage, you will obviously need a highly durable tyre or you will have to replace them more often and this will end up wasting more money in the long term. Different weather conditions can often dictate the type of tyres you need. In times of extreme ice, you could buy tyres specifically for driving in those conditions.

The Load Rating for any tyre (Load Index) shows the maximum weight that each tyre is able to support. Ratings of Common Load Indexes are listed below.
The speed rating of any tyre is a measurement of the maximum safe speed the tyre can carry a load under specified conditions. It also shows how the tyre will handle at lower speeds. A higher rated tyre will give you better traction and improved steering response even at 50 MPH.
