The rules for tyres have been redefined in the latest statement by the central government.

Vehicles Are Set To Become More Fuel-Efficient And Offer Better Performance From October – Here’s Why

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is set to enforce new regulations regarding tyres starting this October. All the newly designed tyres after October will have to comply with these regulations to sell tyres in the country. This new law will apply to tyres made for passenger cars (Class 1), light trucks (Class 2), and heavy trucks and buses (Class 3). The new regulations have been introduced to meet the safety standards of tyres and will have an impact on the rolling resistance, wet grip and sound emitted by rolling vehicles.

Rolling Resistance Impact On Vehicle’s Performance 

Those tyres which have already been designed and developed and are currently on sale in the country will need to comply with the new regulations for rolling resistance and wet grip by April 2023, and the rolling sound emission rule by June 2023. In terms of performance, the rolling resistance of the tyre has a major impact on fuel economy, while the wet grip influences the braking performance during driving in damp conditions and enhances safety. The rolling sound emission means the sound produced when the tyre contacts the road surface while in motion.

As per the new statement, the tyres shall meet the rules for wet grip, rolling resistance and rolling sound emission norms of stage 2 limits as stipulated in Automotive Industry Standard (AIS). With these regulations in place, India will be in-line with the UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) regulations.

New Rules For Tyres Will Go Hand-in-Hand With Airbags Regulation

It is also important to note that the central government is also planning to introduce a new rule wherein all passenger cars with less than and equal to 8 seats, must be equipped with six airbags. This new rule will come into force starting from October 2021, and post this, cars failing to comply with the said rule will not be registered. This new regulation is the same as introduced earlier for the BS6 vehicles. So, it will be interesting to see how the new regulations will impact the automobile industry, as a whole.
