1. Wet grip
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tyre will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
2. Fuel efficiency
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tyres deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing all the way down to class E.
3. Noise level
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tyre, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A down to C.
Additional pictograms for snow and icy conditions
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tyres only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tyres.
