2011 European Summer Tyre Test - 175/65 R14

Below are the 175/65 R14 results from the ADAC test. As usual with ADAC tests, the results are based on pure data with no subjective scores included. The tests are weighted in favour of wet grip, which is awarded 40% of the overall score. A further 20% is given to the dry weather tests, 10% based on how noisy / comfortable the tyres are, 10% on the rolling resistance of the tyre and 20% based on the wear.
