New Tyre Labels In India To Be Based on Fuel Efficiency

The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) and automobile testing agencies are planning to label tyres as per their rolling resistance and wet grip.

The rolling resistance rating of the tyre will indicate fuel consumption, while wet grip rating will indicate the tyre's braking ability on a wet road.

However, bringing these reforms in tyre labelling will be a challenge for the agencies, as India does not have enough testing facilities. AT present, testing wet grip of tyre is only available at ICAT Manesar. Also, we do not have any testing facilities for rolling resistance.

Currently, the European Union and countries such as Japan and South Korea have similar labelling programmes for tyres.

What is Rolling Resistance?

The most basic know-how revolves around bringing a steady car into motion. The amount of energy it requires to bring and keep a vehicle in motion is distributed among its four wheels. This energy, consumed by the tyres for keeping the vehicle running, is known as rolling resistance. In simpler language, it is just the energy that is needed to keep your tyres rolling at a steady and straight pace.

Rolling-resistance

In India customers do not have the option to select tyres while buying a new vehicle, however, tyre labelling will play a major role in the aftermarket or replacement market which is larger than new-vehicle market.
