Tread Labels Can Help You Ensure Compliance to Regulations

Many countries require manufacturers to clearly communicate specific performance and safety ratings for each individual tyre. Often this information needs to be available in multiple formats. One area this information is often required is on your tread label.

Each country has a different format for safety ratings and have chosen different features that need to be scored. The most common safety features included in tread legislation are fuel efficiency, wet grip/rolling resistance, and external rolling noise.

We are familiar with these regulations and can help you ensure your tread labels are compliant.

How much do Tread Labels Cost?

Since we tailor our labels to the needs of our customers, several factors come into play when determining the cost of your label order. Here are the major variables that will impact the final cost:

Label Materials

Certain materials are more expensive than others for a variety of reasons. One of the main reasons certain materials might cost more is related to their durability. Durable face stocks, stronger adhesives and special coatings may increase the cost in exchange for the extended lifespan of the label. If the lifespan of the label isn’t as much of a concern in your application you may opt for a less durable option.

Print Method

The print method you use will also influence the price. When you order pre-printed labels you gain access to extremely high resolution and colour-accuracy print technologies and utilising these technologies can affect the overall cost of your labels.

If you choose to utilise an in-house printing strategy, a few additional factors are added to the mix. You may choose to print your labels in black and white with thermal transfer technology, in full colour with inkjet print technology or in full colour by utilising a combination strategy combining pre-printed labels with in-house thermal transfer printing.

When considering a print method it’s always important to discuss your needs with your supplier so both your process requirements and budget can be met.


As with almost anything, as your order gets larger your overall cost will increase, however, consumables may be discounted if an agreement is made to purchase a certain quantity over time.

Application Method

Whether you choose manual application or automated application will affect the cost of your labels. We special engineer our labels to ensure they are optimised for their intended application method. Meaning your application process might require special materials or alterations that could add to the cost.

With these factors in mind, the average consumer can expect to invest about $50 or $60 per every 1,000 tread labels, but that is subject to change depending on any custom requirements necessary to fulfill your goals.
