XL stands for Extra Load. They use a more reinforced compound to carry heavier loads, but are the same size as normal tyres. If your car had XL tyres factory fitted then you must choose XL tyres for any new ones you buy.
Summer tyres offer optimal safety performance above +7 degrees celsius. The compounds used are meant to facilitate good handling and grip, on dry and wet roads alike.
These types of cars require special tyres to ensure even tyre wear throughout the lifetime of the tyre and to be able to perform on off-road conditions.
In November 2012, a standard label for vehicle tyres will be mandatory throughout Europe: based on three criteria, the EU tyre label provides information on the environmental and safety characteristics of a tyre with the aim of increasing road safety and reducing pollution.
