New rating for tyres

I had to get a new tyre a couple of days ago as I thought it had a puncture, but when the guy took it off, he said it must have been running under inflated as on the inside of the tyre it had three handfuls of what looked like grated rubber. So he said he couldn't re-fit it. Anyway tyres now have ratings like energy, A-F on fuel economy and wet and grip handling, also the amount off decibels for road noise. So now it's quite interesting to see how tyres vary, surprisingly some of the more expensive tyres don't have very good ratings.
