Test your tyres to optimum standards
Manufacturers that export tyres to the EU face increasingly stringent quality and safety requirements. Following the introduction of EU tyre labels, new regulations now enforce this additional requirement. Today’s consumers have become more knowledgeable about tyre safety and efficiency. The EU tyre label makes it easy for customers to compare tyres in terms of wet grip, fuel efficiency and noise. Access to the results of tyre benchmarking tests featured in automotive publications is adding to consumer awareness and sensitivity to tyre safety and performance.
TÜV SÜD is a leader in tyre testing. We are the largest independent institute for tyre and wheel technologies in Europe. As a certified test lab for tyre properties, we provide the full scope of tyre tests according to standards, regulations and customer-specified requirements. We also provide tyre benchmarking and the TÜV SÜD tyre test mark for products that meet the required standard of quality and safety.
