Beijing - Europe's tyre labeling laws have driven substantial improvement in the performance of tyres made in China. Triangle Tyres said a change in tread formulations have moved many of its products from an F rating up to B, C or E ratings. There is no D classification.
"Triangle tyres now exports almost all in compliance with EU regulations, passenger car tyre exports to the EU are all labeled, too." Said Xu Wendong, Triangle's maketing manager for Europe.
Xu said the ending of tariffs on tyre imports to the United States from China has also helped his company's business. Hile the tariffs were in force, Triangle built markets in Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia. These market will continue, while sales to the US will also increase now that the tariffs have been lifted.
