Are the tires in the US the same than in Germany?

hello,

i´m thinking about ordering some 35" BFG AT tires in the US.
they only cost 40% of our german price.

but before i have a question:
here in germany we have stupid laws and they say hat all allowed tires must have some special signs on their side.

we need the EU sign (4 on the pic below) and the EU number (5 on the pic). we also need the DOT sign (7).

i don´t think that they produce different tires for the US end the EU, but i don´t want to order wrong tires.

so could you please look at your BFG AT tires if you have these signs on the side of your tires? perhaps you can make a pic for me?

thanks in advance.

thats how a tires side must look here in europe...

My Goodyear MT/R's have an E13 on them 33x12.50-15. So I guess mine are not Germany friendly.

does it have the E14 with the circle around?
that sounds good.
the E stands for europe and the number for the european country where it was tested.
E14 means that the tire was tested in switzerland.

could you pleas make pic of that E14 sign?

thanks.

the E13 means that it was tested in luxembourg.

Ah...don't you need the "Z" on them for the autobahn?

Now there's a scary thought.... 220 clicks/hr in a Jeep. Is that possible?

I can't say I would either. 80 MPH is too fast...much less 100 +
