Detail Introduction

What is a Tyre Label?

Tyre labels are specially designed labels that can be adhered to both ventilated and non-ventilated tyre treads. Our tyre tread labels utilize a robust rubber-based adhesive to meet these requirements. Tyre label materials are pressure-sensitive label materials specially designed for application to tyre treads. These label structures can be printed with specific digital and flexographic printing methods, with exceptional adhesion to breathable and impermeable tyre treads.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires tyre manufacturers to put a tyre label on every new tyre sold in the U.S. The label contains important information about your tyres including:

Manufacturer name and address

Tyre size (example: P195/65R15)

Maximum inflation pressure (example: 36 psi)

Recommended cold inflation pressure (example: 32 psi)

Service description (example: All-Season)

What are the Requirements of Tyre Labels?

The label is a part of the tyre that's attached to it by the manufacturer. It's designed to help you choose the best tyres for your car, and it gives you important information about the performance, durability, and safety of tyres before you purchase them.

In North America, the label consists of four pieces of information:

-The Uniform Tyre Quality Grade (UTQG), is a rating system developed by the Department of Transportation that gives consumers a way to compare tyres based on treadwear, traction, and temperature resistance.

-The service description, indicates how much weight each tyre can support (for example, 103V indicates a maximum load capacity of 1,874 lbs. per tyre).

-The maximum air pressure at which the tyre should be inflated. Note that this number is higher than what your owner's manual recommends. If you're not sure what to aim for when inflating your tyres, consult your mechanic or visit a tyre retailer.

-The speed rating, tells you at what speeds the tyre can safely operate. For example, an H-rated tyre can be run at up to 130 mph, while an R-rated tyre can only be run at up to 106 mph.

How Do I Read the Information on a Tyre Label?

Make sure your tyres are in good shape by keeping an eye on the label. The label is also known as the tyre Safety Group (TSG) Label, and it was designed to help you get more information about any particular tyre. It contains a wide range of information, from the tyre's weight and load capacity to its ride quality and fuel efficiency. Here are some useful tips for understanding how to read the label on your next set of tyres.

The following is a description of what you will find on a tyre label:

1. Tyre Identification Number (TIN)

2. Maximum Load

3. Treadwear Rating / Traction AA A B C D E or TBD (Treadwear)

4. Temperature A B C D or -M- (Temperature)

5. Speed Rating / Max Rpm X Y km/h (Speed)

Tyre load limit

The load limit is the maximum amount of weight that each tyre can safely support when fully inflated. You should always check your vehicle's owner manual to find out what its capacity is, as every make and model is different.

Tyre pressure

The pressure rating indicates the amount of air that should be used to inflate each tyre. Your car's manual will have a section explaining where you can find the recommended pressure level in your vehicle. This is important because over-or under-inflating tyres can cause premature wear and damage, so it's crucial to keep them at the right level.

Temperature resistance

Temperature resistance measures how well a tyre can dissipate heat and resist heat build-up when used under normal conditions. The temperature grade assigned to each tyre is established by the Federal Government, based on test results, or in accordance with standards established by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

Tread depth

Tread depth is another vital piece of information on your tyre label. It tells you how much tread is left on each tyre, which helps you determine when it's time to replace them. Tyres should be replaced when their tread depth reaches 2/32 inches (1/16 inch) or 4/32 inches (5/32 inch).


Tyre labels and fuel economy

The EPA estimates that tyres account for about 10% of the total fuel economy of a vehicle. However, this is average, and the actual effect will vary depending on your driving habits.

The most important thing to remember about tyres and fuel economy is that tyres are not just about how much gas you consume; they’re also about safety. You want to make sure that your tyres are properly inflated, have enough tread, and are in good condition.

Tyre pressure impacts fuel economy because when the pressure inside the tyre is too high or too low, the tyre will deform more easily and use more energy to roll down the road. Also, if your tyres are under-inflated by 10 percent or more, they can wear out faster because they deform more easily under load.

The tread depth affects fuel economy as well: Tyres with less than 1/16th of an inch of tread depth perform substantially worse than new tyres with at least 3/32nds of an inch (2 millimeters) of tread depth.


How is the Tyre Label Useful to Consumers?

The tyre label is useful to consumers because it provides information such as the tyre’s size and casing type, as well as its speed rating.

The tyre label also contains information related to the tyre’s load index and speed rating. The load index indicates the maximum weight that can be carried by a given tyre. The speed rating is based on how fast a particular tyre can be driven while still maintaining optimal performance.

The sidewall of every new tyre has a tyre Identification Number (TIN) that consists of three numbers followed by two letters or digits (see sample below). This number can be used to look up information about the specific tyre for which it was provided.

For example, if you have tyres with a TIN of "2917," you would look up the following information:

29 = Passenger Vehicle tyre Standard Service Code - this refers to how the tyre will perform when used in normal driving conditions on paved roads

17 = Maximum Loaded Trailer Weight - this refers to how much weight can be put on your vehicle's tyres before they are overloaded and cause damage.

What Are the Three Ratings on the Tyre Label?

The three ratings on the tyre label are maximum speed, traction, and temperature.

The maximum speed rating is the highest speed at which a tyre can be driven for extended periods without the risk of sudden tyre failure. The tyre's service description will provide details of how this rating was determined.

Traction refers to the tyre's ability to keep your vehicle going in adverse conditions. It is determined by how well the tyre conforms to the road surface and how well it grips the road when cornering.

Temperature refers to how hot the tyre can get before reaching its limits and becoming unsafe. This information is also based on testing done by experts, who understand what makes a specific tyre run safely at high speeds or in severe weather conditions.


Where is the Tyre Label located?

The tyre label contains important information about your tyres. It is usually located on the inside edge of the driver's side door. This label has a tyre identification number (TIN) and a DOT code, which indicates that it was manufactured according to U.S. Department of Transportation specifications. If you discover that your tyres do not have these markings, they may be counterfeit or illegally imported.

The tyre size is also listed on the tyre label:

The first set of numbers represents the width of the tyre in millimeters from sidewall to sidewall. The second set of numbers represents the height of the tyre from rim to tread surface inches. For example, size 205/70R15 means that this is a 205-millimeter wide tyre on a 70-series rim with 15-inch diameter rims for fitment purposes only.

What is a Tyre Label For?

Tyre labels are mainly used to identify new and used tyres, as well as tyre storage and inventory management. tyre labels are suitable for garages, car dealerships, auto service stations, tyre storage, and tyre scrap stations.


What Are the Characteristics of Tyre Labels?

Tyre labels have a particularly durable adhesive. tyre labels are built to last, even in the harshest environments the car is exposed. As a UL-recognized label supplier, we offer UL-compliant vinyl and polyester label face stock and adhesives for full automotive life cycle use. Our specialty adhesives are suitable for the most demanding applications.

tyre labels stick firmly to all types of rubber tyres (vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, airplanes, tractors, etc.) and any other rubber product. It is made of special paper that can withstand cold and very hot usage; it works just as well in water immersion as well as in high humidity and other harsh conditions, the adhesive stays sticky, and it is very resistant to abrasion.
