2015 Market Overview - Braking Test

53 summer Tyres for small to medium cars in 185/50 R15. The top 18 go through to the full Auto Bild test.

There are the wet and dry braking results from 62mph.

As always, the gap in the dry isn't too large, with the best to worst being seperated by under 5 metres when stopping from 100 kph. In the wet however the range is much larger. When stopping from the same speed on a wet track, the difference is over 38 meters!  

In fact, the best tyre in the dry, the Nankank XR611 beats the test winning Pirelli by nearly 2 meters in the dry, only to stop 26.6 meters after the Pirelli in the wet! Proof it's easy to make a tyre work in the dry, and must harder to make one work in the wet.
