What Is Speed Rating?
The speed rating of a tyre is displayed on the sidewall. You will find it at the end of the tyre's size. It is always represented by a letter - in the following example the tyre speed rating is "V". Speed ratings are based on tests in which engineers run the tyre at 6.2 mph steps, in 10 minute increments, until the required speed has been met. The following is a table with each speed rating:
What Is Tyre Labelling?
EU Legislation came into force in 2012 which requires every new tyre sold within Europe (with some exceptions) to be labelled based on the performance of specific criteria. On the label there are grades given to 3 important categories that should be considered when choosing a tyre:
- Fuel Efficiency
- Wet Grip
- External Rolling Noise
How do I know my Tyre Size?
Your tyre contains a lot of information about it. The image below will help you decipher that.
Do my Tyres need changing?
You should be checking your tyres and pressures at least every 2 weeks and before undertaking long journeys. If there is evidence of any of the following then it may well be time for them to be changed
- Reduced Tread depth
How to Check you Tread, use the “20p Test”
- Cracks and splits in the sidewall
- Blisters and Slits
- Vibration whilst driving
- Weird noises
- Tyre Age
You can check the age of your tyres by looking for the DOT markings on the side of the Tyre
These give you the week and year that your tyres were made. If your tyres are over 5 years old you should consider replacing them.
