ENVIRONMENT. The European Commission is looking at devising environmental rankings for automobile tyre traction.

If every Swedish driver used the most effective tyres, they could lower fuel consumption by 5 percent and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1 million tonnes a year.In addition to traction, friction on wet roads, and noise levels may also serve as possible criteria.“Consumers are interested in these three characteristics,” said Ulf Sandberg of the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI).

Tyre makers have ­re­acted positively to environ­mental rankings, noting that better tyres may not necessarily be more expensive. And people who can’t wait for a ranking system do have other options.“Using the recom­men­ded [air tyre] pressure can save a lot in reducedfuel consumption,” said Sandberg.
