Goodyear Dunlop EMEA marketing director of truck tyres Boris Stevanovic has claimed that the firm have been providing tyres with an A rating for fuel efficiency for some two years.
The assessment comes as compound manufacturers across the world prepare for the introduction of a new labeling system within the European Union which will see tyres given a grade or rating for a number of factors including wet grip and fuel efficiency.
Keen to impress motorists, Michelin has previously claimed that several of its passenger car tyres have offered an A grade for wet grip, as dictated by the new rules set to come into place.
Goodyear Dunlop has now entered into the debate, with Mr Stevanovic claiming the firm's LHT II trailer tyres, which have been on the market for two years, carry an A label rating for fuel efficiency.
"We have offered these performance levels for years proves once again our commitment to our customers’ needs in providing tyres that cut fuel consumption and have excellent wet braking capabilities," he told Tyrepress.
"There are many other performance areas that we concentrate on; not least mileage, retreadability and durability, to ensure that our tyres provide excellent value for money.”
The firm is set to unveil a new range of Goodyear Dunlop tyres at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hannover next month.
