2022 Auto Bild All Season Tire Test

Auto Bild tests are always amongst the best in the industry, and this year Auto Bild have taken things a step further. Not only did Auto Bild start with 25 all season tires in the popular 195/55 R16 size and test them in dry and wet braking to get the best 15 for the full test below, they've also tested things Tire Reviews was unable to test in the Tire Reviews 2022 all season tire test, including real world fuel use, the all important wear test, and new for this year, they tracked the abrasion of the tires to see which tire gives off the least particulates to the environment, which is separate from projected tire life!

Wear and Abrasion

Starting with wear and abrasion, there's a few surprises. Big surprises. 

Firstly, the top three. Goodyear performing well isn't unusual, but Nexen and Toyo having the best projected mileage is very impressive. But more shocking is that the  traditional kings of wear, Michelin, performed poorly, finishing third from last, and the Continental AllSeasonContact, which historically has done very well in wear tests, also performed badly.

Knowing the wear and price of the tires allows us to calculate a value score, based on Euros per 1000km, and given Michelin and Continental are some of the most expensive tires on test, this is an extremely poor result for both brands, and deranks them heavily in the final results.

The results of this wear test certainly doesn't align with previous tests. If true, it's a big shake up we've not seen before, but there's always a chance it might be specific to this size, or it might be an issue with how the wear tests was measured.

New for 2022 is the abrasion tests, which is measured by weighing the tire before and after the wear test and seeing how much weight was lost. This doesn't track with wear because some tires have more void ratio in the tread pattern, and some tires have narrower profiles overall, both meaning less material in the tire.

In this test, the Michelin did lose the least amount of weight, which is the best result for the environment. This also shows the Michelin compound is still performing well.

Surprising Real World Fuel Use Results

The other new interesting dataset in this test was the real world fuel use, which was measured during the wear test. When we compare this against the bench measured rolling resistance data, there's another surprising inversion with Michelin.

This is harder to explain. Theories in the comments please!

Best Tires

Now we know Michelin and Continental have been deranked due to low value scores, this leaves the top few positions open to a surprise result. Sadly, we don't get one.

The Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 continues to be an outstanding all season tire in nearly all conditions, the Vredestein Quatrac also does very well, and the Hankook Kinergy 4S2 rounds out the top three spots, all tires which performed well in the 2022 Tire Reviews All Season Tire Test. It's always nice to get parity amongst tests.

Dry

Fortunately for Michelin the dry braking of the CrossClimate 2 is still class leading, with the Kleber Quadraxer 3 (a Michelin tier 2 brand) placing second.

The Dunlop Sport All Season was the best around the dry handling lap, with the Goodyear and Hankook close behind.

In both dry tests the summer tire was significantly better than any of the all season tires, and the winter tire was narrowly last place.

Wet

Bridgestone took the lead in wet braking with the WeatherControl A005 EVO being the only all season tire able to get close to the summer tire in braking performance.

Wet handling had the impressive Vredestein Quatrac be the fastest tire around the lap, with the Goodyear and Dunlop once again performing well.

Goodyear had the best straight aquaplaning performance with the Vector 4Seasons Gen-3.

Snow

Snow braking was led by the winter tire, but the margin was small with the best all season tire, the Nokian SeasonProof less than a meter behind.

The CrossClimate 2 was the only all season tire able to offer better snow traction than the dedicated winter tire!

The winter tire had an advantage during snow handling, with the Nokian and Hankook Kinergy 4S2 proving to be the best of the all season tires.

Environment

The Nokian had the lowest external noise, but the whole group was spread by just 1.9dB.

The excellent wearing Nexen N Blue 4Season was not only the best wearing tire on test, but also the cheapest, with the Continental and Michelin the most expensive.
