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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
We're going to let the test do the talking for this one. The excellent Swedish testers at ViBilagare have tested eight SUV studless friction winter tires, included the new Nokian Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV and Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V3 using a Volvo V40 wearing 235/55 R18 tires. Fortunately, where the tire patterns match those in the Tire Reviews Nordic Winter Tire Test, the results are very similar!
Sadly here at Tire Reviews we've not had time to do a studded tire test for 2022, but fortunately the excellent testers at the Nordic publication Vibilagare have tested eight sets of studded winter tires to show us which of the studded tires on the market are the best! While the test size is an SUV size (235/55 R18) and the test vehicle a Volvo XC40, these results should give you an idea of the balance between the tires in all sizes.
As you would hope, the tires have been tested in the dry, wet, snow and ice. Which is of course the reason studded tires exist.
The data is interesting, and in full below, but as we saw in the Tire Reviews Studless Winter Tire Test there is a pretty clear inversion between the tires which priorities wet performance, and the tires which priorities ice performance.
In this mini test I compare the plus version of the best ultra high performance all season tires on the market, the Bridgestone Potenza RE980AS+, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 Plus, the Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 and the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus in the dry, wet and snow to see which is the best tire overall! Can the current champion, the Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 retain it's lead? Only one way to find out!
The 2022 Auto Bild Sports Car UHP Winter Tire Test has tested nine popular performance winter tires in the large 245/40 R19 size using a Cupra Formenta.
The testing heros at Sport Auto have answered a question we've all wanted to know the answer to! Just how good are all season tires in large wheel sizes on a performance vehicle?
To answer this, Sport Auto have tested six of the best all season tires, and included a NAMED summer and winter tire, the Bridgestone Potenza Sport UUHP summer tire, and the test winning Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 winter tire.
It's a good test.
