Tyres and regulations
Summer is finally behind us and winter is fast approaching. Before the cold weather sets in, here is an overview of what tyre equipment British drivers require to handle winter conditions.
From 1st November 2012, all new car models will be equipped with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (or TPMS). From 1st November 2014 all new passenger vehicles will have TPMS installed. A step forward for safety and the environment.
In the next 3 years European consumers will benefit from a labelling system providing information about the tyre efficiency and performance. This will facilitate consumers in making their choice before purchase.
