This is the most in depth tire test Tire Reviews has ever performed! This UHP summer tire test will compare six of the very best ultra high performance tires, and including a full wear test, some cooler temperature testing, and worn state testing!
On test we have the latest and greatest 18" sports tires from Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear, Hankook, Michelin and Yokohama. As usual we'll be covering every aspect of the tires performance, including the wet performance, dry grip, internal noise, comfort, rolling resistance and the all important wear!
Times are hard, and now more so than ever people are asking me what the best budget tire they can buy is. As these have never been tested against each other properly, I usually don't have an answer, but all that is about to change!
Sadly I've not been able to test every budget available, there are literally hundreds of tire brands coming out of the far east, most of them from just a handful of factories. In fact, I've got over 300 tire brands on the tire reviews website, and as much as I love big tests, even that's too much for me.
Instead, I've bought eight of the most common and cheapest tires available I could find, and because I've never tested a retread tire, I bought one of those too. Naturally they'll all be going through a full tire reviews tire test to see which is best.
In this test, we'll be finding out what the best premium touring summer tires on the market are!
I'm going to try and keep this as condensed as I possibly can as we have 13 sets of tires in this test including the newest and best from Continental, Michelin, Hankook, Pirelli, Bridgestone, Vredestein, Kumho, Toyo, Nankang and more! This should also be the world's first test of the Continental PremiumContact 7!
All season tires are trying to be one tire for every situation, but as we know no tire can excel in every category, meaning tire manufacturers often take away from one area to be better in another.
So, which all season tire is best for YOUR own needs? To find out Tire Reviews has ten of the most popular all season tires on the market, and will be testing them in the snow, dry and wet, noise, comfort and rolling resistance!
The tire size I'm testing is massively popular 225/45 R17, and while there might not be any new names in the test this year, a different size and different testing location means we're likely to get some interesting results! The Michelin Crossclimate 2 stormed to victory last year in 16", will this year be any different?
In this test we'll be testing nine of the most popular all terrain tires to see which has the most grip in the dry, wet, AND offroad, and also to see which uses the least gas, and which has the best comfort and lowest noise in the real world. Basically, everything you'll ever need to know about these all terrain tires!
It's the 2022 Tire Reviews Ultra-Ultra High Performance Summer Tire Test! You can watch the video here, or scroll down for the full write up and data!
In this tire test, I'll be testing ten of the most popular ultra-ultra high performance tires on the market to find out exactly what tire is best at what.
Continental has unveiled its latest all season product, the Continental AllSeasonContact 2. This new all-season tire is a significant upgrade from its predecessor, offering enhanced safety, balance, and efficiency, making it Continental's best all-season tire to date.
The AllSeasonContact 2 is designed to provide the best possible driving control in any weather situation. The tire is compatible with all types of vehicles, including electric vehicles, making it a versatile choice for drivers.
Bridgestone has just unveiled its latest premium product: the Turanza All Season 6. This all-season tire is designed to redefine year-round performance and safety for both electric and gas-powered vehicles for the Bridgestone brand.
One of the key improvements Bridgestone have made with the replacement to the Bridgestone WeatherControl A005 EVO is the braking performance across all weather conditions. The independent automotive testing institute, TÜV SÜD, confirmed its best-in-class wet braking ability and impressive dry and snowy condition performance. When tested against other leading brands like Michelin, Continental, and Goodyear, the Turanza All Season 6 consistently demonstrated great results.
When it comes to tires, there are countless options available on the market, making it a challenge for consumers to choose the best one for their needs. In April 2023, tire-reviews.com revealed the top 10 most-viewed tires on their website, showcasing a range of products that cater to various driving preferences. This article will provide an overview of these top 10 tires, discussing their key features, performance characteristics, and what sets them apart from the competition.
When shopping for new tires, you've probably noticed a series of numbers and letters printed on the sidewall of each tire.
These alphanumeric codes provide important information about the tire's specifications, such as size, load-carrying capacity, and maximum speed capability. Decoding these numbers and letters can help you choose the right tires for your vehicle and ensure a safe, comfortable, and efficient driving experience. In this article, we will explain how to interpret tire size, load index, and speed rating using the example size 225/40 R18 92Y.
At Tire Reviews, we frequently receive inquiries from electric vehicle (EV) owners about whether they should continue using the original equipment (OE) tires designed for their EVs, switch to a newer specific EV tire, or opt for a standard aftermarket tire. It seems that German publication AutoBild has encountered similar questions, as they recently conducted a test comparing three tire types on a Tesla Model S.
In this test, AutoBild compared the OE Michelin Pilot Sport 3, the latest aftermarket version (Michelin Pilot Sport 5), and the new EV-specific aftermarket tire, the Hankook iON Evo. This examination addresses numerous concerns and provides valuable insights for EV owners.
In this article I'll be sharing exclusive information about the brand new Michelin Pilot Sport S 5!
If you're reading this article I'm 100% sure you will already know all about the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S, which is still, after 6 years, one of the best ultra high performance tires you can buy today.
The PS4S has such a HUGE amount of popularity online, I get asked almost daily when the replacement for this tire will be launched, and I'm really happy to stay, NOW is that TIME! Well, sort of… The new tire we're talking about today is the Michelin Pilot Sport S 5, and yes there's subtle change in the naming scheme, more on that in a bit.
It's not often I'm completely shocked by a tire test, but this years AMS EV tire vs normal tire test has me stumped.
Why? Let me run a few things past you. The Michelin e.Primacy was best in wet braking, beating both the Continental SportContact 7 and Bridgestone Potenza Sport, which usually ace that test. The Michelin e.Primacy also beat the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV overall, which has won every other test it's featured in, and Continental won the test twice!
The concept for the test seems relatively straightforward - get a bunch of the best performance tires on the market and test them against the newest ultra low rolling resistance / EV tires, the Michelin e.Primacy, the Falken eZiex and the Pirelli Scorpion Elect.
The 2023 Sport Auto summer tire test has set out to discover what the best UHP summer tire is by testing eleven summer tires in the popular 225/40 R18 size using an Audi S3.
Once again the Continental SportContact 7 won the test with a strong performance in the dry and wet, with the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 close behind in second place.
Sadly Tire Reviews isn't performing an SUV summer tire test this year, but luckily the German publication AutoBild once again have us covered if you want to know what the best tire is for your SUV!
This year AutoBild tested twelve SUV tires for the crossover SUV segment in the 225/65 R17 tire size.
As usual, all the tires were tested in the dry and wet, and had their rolling resistance and noise / comfort levels graded, but as this category of tire is also intended for some "light off-roading" they tested the twelve SUV tires in mud, sand, dirt and even on wet grass! This means this really is the best test this year you show you what the best tire is for your SUV!
Following on from the fifty tire braking shootout, Autobild have put the best twenty summer tires through a full tire test and included a budget reference tire, which performed terribly!
The biggest advantage of an Autobild tire test? They include a wear test, this year done on a machine, so scroll down the page to see each tires estimated mileage and take note of how that affects the overall result!
The 2023 Auto Zeitung Performance Summer Tire Test included nine of the very best UHP summer tires in the popular 235/35 R19 tire size, and also included the Michelin CrossClimate 2 all season / all weather tire so show us how one of the best all season tires compared to some of the best summer tires. The test car was a 280bhp Ford Focus ST which will give the summer tires a good stress test, let alone the all seasons!
If you've ever dreamed of seeing the Michelin Pilot Sport 5, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6, Continental SportContact 7 and Bridgestone Potenza Sport in the same test, your dreams have just been answered with the 2023 Auto Bild Sportscars Summer Tire Test! They even included the new Falken FK520!
The German publication tested thirteen of the most popular UHP tires in 225/40 R18 using a Toyota GR Yaris, and yes you read that right, the SportContact 7 is now available in some 18" wheel sizes!
Want to know which of the UHP titans is best overall? Read on!
It's the 50th anniversary of the ADAC tire test, and to celebrate the German automotive body have tested fifty summer tires in the popular 205/55 R16 tire size, and have included wear testing for every tire!
There's a lot to unpack in this test, so we'll dive straight in! Headline notes, there are two Michelin tires in this test, the Michelin Primacy 4+ and the energy saving Michelin e.Primacy, the Continental on test is not the new PremiumContact 7, it's the previous model, the Continental PremiumContact 6, and Continental also have the new Continental UltraContact in the test, which is meant to be a lower rolling resistance and higher mileage tire for those who drive a lot of distance!
Every year it becomes harder and harder to argue that the German publication AutoBild aren't leading the tire testing game, and once again they seem to be a huge step ahead of everyone else.
For their 2023 summer tire test, AutoBild have started with fifty 225/45 R18 tires, mostly ultra high performance tires but also some touring bias rubber, and put them through a huge dry and wet braking test.
As always, the real fun will be published in the full review in a few weeks where the top twenty tires from this test will be put through a full examination, but this braking data does give us some interesting insights.
The first summer tire test of 2023 has been published, the Gute Fahrt / ACE Europe UHP tire test in the popular 235/35 R19 size using a Golf GTI.
Unfortunately the details of the test are somewhat limited, and this isn't a test that shares any data or percentage results. Instead they use a positive or negative scoring system, which really doesn't satisfy our geeky desire for data, so this write up will be limited.
