Tyre Fuel Savings

    Tyre Fuel Savings

    Doing Your Bit

    Fuel savings and Road Safety depend heavily on the way you drive.

    Eco Driving can significantly cut fuel consumption:
    Maintain a steady speed at low revs per minute and shift up early.
    Tyre pressure affects both wet grip and fuel efficiency; regularly check your tyres and make sure that they are at the recommended pressure.
    Make sure you allow yourself time to stop. A safe stopping distance should always be maintained.

    Maxxis is developing tyres that meet safety and environmental standards while continuing to offer incredible driving and riding performance. If you have any further questions please contact us at Maxxis.

    The new mandatory European tire label must be displayed on the tire or at the points of sale of all C1, C2 and C3 tires produced from 1 May 2021. The label (label) shows to what extent the tire is economical, environmentally friendly and safe. It also displays the performance of tires specifically designed for use in heavy snow and ice conditions. The tire label allows for comparison of tires with the aim of encouraging the use of safer, more economical and quieter tyres.

    However, the label lists only 5 performance criteria while there are as many as 50 performance criteria to judge the quality of a tyre. Examples of these are: wear resistance (kilometre efficiency), braking on dry surfaces, traction on snow, lateral grip on ice, noise production in the vehicle, handling and aquaplaning.

    Why Regulate Tyre Labelling?

    Tyres make an important contribution to road safety and to the environmental impact of road transport. However, all tyres don’t offer the same performance.

    The Regulation enables consumers to make more informed choices when buying tyres. The EU’s targeted outcome is that road safety will improve and that the environmental impact of road transport will be reduced.
