Tire Reviews is the leading source of independant tire information in the world. Every year, Tire Reviews conducts detailed summer, all season and winter tire tests, which can be found in the tire test section
The Tire Reviews website also has over 4 billion miles of tire reviews covering more than 3000 different tire patterns, and has databased over 400 expert tire tests from across world.
For the 2023/24 season, Tire Reviews has tested ten of the very best all season tires available. Following on from last years test in 17", this year we focused on the smaller 15" wheel size, and included summer and winter reference tires to highlight exactly what the best all season tire is for your driving, and where summer and winter tires fit into the overall performance.
As always, this is one of the most in depth all season tire tests on the internet, and each of the ten sets of tires are tested in the dry, wet and snow, plus the tires subjective noise and comfort and rolling resistance (energy use) is also tested.
As everyone's driving situation is a little different, you can also adjust the overall score weighting of the test below so you really can find the perfect tire for your own driving needs.
Last year the Michelin CrossClimate 2 won for the second year in a row. Can it make it three of three?
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!
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.
Annually, the team at the German outlet Auto Bild conducts comprehensive tests on all-season tires, focusing on wet and dry braking performance, and this year is no different!
Below are the braking results for 35 all-season tires in the 225/45 R17 size. The top 15 will proceed to the complete evaluation, which will be published on the site next week.
The 2023 AMS SUV winter tire test not only aims to answer what the best winter tire in 255/45 R20 is, but also to find out if swapping from a regular diesel Kia Sorento to a fully electric Kia EV6 will make a difference to the results.
All season and winter tire testing season is upon us! The first test of the season is the excellent AutoBild AllRad SUV all season tire test, which tested ten of the latest all season tires in 235/65 R17, and included a reference summer and winter tire to see what the differences are between various tire options.
Autobild conducted the test using an Audi Q3, and are the first publication to test the new Bridgestone Turanza 6 All Season! Can the new Bridgestone take on the established king, the Michelin CrossClimate 2 SUV? Read on to find out!
Bridgestone, the world's largest tire and rubber company, has rolled out a new addition to their Potenza series: the Potenza Sport AS. Developed by a 400-member team in Akron, Ohio, the tire aims to set a new standard in the ultra-high performance all-season segment. The Potenza Sport AS is initially available in 48 sizes, targeted at sports sedans and sports cars, with an expansion to 76 sizes planned for 2024.
Just days after Tire Reviews tested the General G-Max AS05, General Tire has unveiled its latest version of the ultra high performance all season tire, the G-MAX™ AS07.
Designed for a wide range of vehicles including passenger cars, crossovers, light trucks, and SUVs, this new tire represents a significant advancement in traction, durability, and performance. Replacing and merging two earlier models, the G-MAX AS05 and Grabber UHP, the G-MAX AS07 offers an extensive size lineup and incorporates cutting-edge features which means, at least according to General's internal testing, best-in-class braking and snow traction.
In this test I'll be comparing 7 of the most popular ultra high performance all season tires to find out which tire is best for you.
If you've read any of my previous all season tests, you'll be happy to know that six of the tires in this test I've never tested before, and they include the brand new Pirelli P Zero AS 3 Plus and the brand new Falken Azenis FK460AS. The tire I have tested before is one of the benchmarks of the segment, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS06+, so if you want to, you'll have a cross reference points to compare the tires in this test to the tires in the previous tests.
As always I'll be digging into the dry, wet, comfort and noise performance of the tires, then in a later test I'll be looking at the snow performance, to give you a really complete overview of the tires performances.
Pirelli has just launched the P Zero Trofeo RS, a new iteration of the semi-slick tire for automakers focusing on the performance optimization of their sportiest models. For instance, the Pagani Automobili requested a customised version of this tire for the Utopia, their latest hypercar.
The P Zero Trofeo RS signifies a technical progression from the P Zero Trofeo R, and is differentiated by its marketplace role. While the Trofeo R was crafted as an aftermarket product to enhance track performance, the Trofeo RS targets primary use as original equipment, enabling car manufacturers to equip vehicles ready for a sporty drive experience right from the factory floor.
In a significant announcement, Bridgestone Americas has launched the Turanza EV grand touring all season tire, a first of its kind offering from the company dedicated to premium electric vehicles (EVs). The tire has been designed to cater to North America's top-selling EVs, namely all Tesla models and Ford Mustang Mach-E. The launch took place at the Electrify Expo in Long Beach, California.
The Turanza EV incorporates Bridgestone's novel ENLITEN™ technology, designed to enhance all-season performance, provide a longer wear life, and pave the way for incorporating renewable and recycled materials in tire production. Additionally, the tire marks the debut of the company's new PeakLife™ polymer, a cutting-edge polymer technology aimed at enhancing tread resistance to wear, thereby extending tire life.
The ultra high performance all season tire category is having a very interesting 2023! The category is currently led by the Continental ExtremeContact DWS06+ and Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4, but there's now a new contender for the top spot - the new Pirelli P Zero AS Plus 3. The new UHP AS tire brings significant updates when compared to its predecessor, which gives it a real chance of upsetting the current status of the market.
For the launch of the new Bridgestone Turanza AllSeason 6, Bridgestone had the independent test body TÜV SÜD Automotive GmbH conduct a comprehensive test of the new all season tire, and compare it to the leaders in the all season category, the Continental AllSeasonContact, Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3, and Michelin CrossClimate 2.
While this isn't a traditional magazine test, it is interesting data, and as many of you have questions about the performance of the new Turanza AllSeason 6, we believe it's worth including on the site.
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.
