Tyre Test Highlights

2014 ACE Summer Tyre Test - 9th of 11 tyres

2014 Test World Summer Tyre Test - 10th of 16 tyres

  • Positive - Good handling on wet roads, predictable in all conditions
  • Negative - Low level of comfort
  • Overall - A balanced tyre. The wet grip is slightly lower than the best tyres, but the Barum has good accountability in all situations without any major handling surprises. On dry roads the tyres react too slowly, and while they're stable the grip isn't great. Disadvantage - it's a hard tyre that becomes immediately apparent on uneven surfaces

2015 Test World Summer Tyre Test - 11th of 15 tyres

  • Positive - Good handling on wet surfaces
  • Negative - Poor resistance to aquaplaning. Handling not good enough in the dry
  • Overall - The Barum Bravuris 3 HM has short braking distance on wet roads, and generally cope well with emergency situations, despite the relatively low grip. However, the tyres are too easy to aquaplane. On dry surfaces they react slowly to steering and are vague, but at least they not prone to sudden loss of adhesion. Braking performance is only average. Comfort is low, and noise level is relatively high.

Top Barum Bravuris 3HM Review

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo v70 2.5 TDi (205/55 R16) on mostly country roads for 500 average miles
Usually I don't like Barum tyres for summer season but reviews are right. This tyre is silent, comfortable, grippy (considering for road tyre) and doesn't squeek even during spirited driving.. Man can trust them. Some tyres are like driving on jelly fish but this isn't. Considering price, it is great deal.

Given 88% (breakdown) while driving a (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 7,000 spirited miles
I put these on a 2005 MBZ c230 with 156000 miles on the car 225/40-17 front, 245/40-17 rear.. I purchased these for the price. Living in So California, I wasn't worried about rain. it rained the week after I got the tires.
They had good traction on our oil slick/wet roads and do a much better job of sticking to the road (wet or dry) than I expected. My morning drive is on a canyon road with nice twists and turns. With morning dew and/or rain, I can still drive with spirit. I've taken the road at 55- 60mph (limit is 40)in an old 1998 Ford Explorer just to give readers an idea of ehat I call "spirited". I was quicker than 60mph and these tires do stick. great value for a high mileage tire at a very affordable price. I've had the tires just over a month.

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A6 Avant 3.0 TDI Quattro (245/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 12,000 average miles
Ive just bought my second set of these tyres, they have lasted 13000 miles on front and the rears have 5mm left after 12000 miles. Ive done over 100,000 miles in the ownership on this car and have tried various tyres.These are great economical tyres for commuting, they provide more than enough grip in the wet and dry, they dont hydroplane doing 70-75 on a very wet motorway even while at 1.6mm on fronts and have great grip in the dry. Ive tried pirelli p7 which last about 8000 miles on front tyres and PS3 which last about 10000 miles on fronts if I recall. If you want a tyre to drive normally on a normal car then buy them you wont find any other tyre as good as these for the money. If you want a tyre for grip and performance for a high performance car (something with more than 400hp not your average 330d) then go buy a premium brand tyre for maximum grip. Ive also tried budget tyres on this car (landsail/accelera phi) and they are terrible in the wet, a 1.6mm pirelli p7 will out perform most 8mm new budget tyres in the wet! There is no point in buying them on a daily driver. These barums are not budget tyres they are mid range and honestly have more than enough dry and wet grip but it ofcourse wont be as grippy as most premium brand tyres. I hope my experience with trying many tyres helps someone unsure about trying these.

Given 97% (breakdown) while driving a BMW X5 3.0 diesel (255/55 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
Great tyre for the price, got them for 300€.
Very quite,good handling, i like the rim protection, it works perfectly when hitting a pothole or when just parking close to the sidewalks.
Will definitely buy them again.

Given 84% (breakdown) while driving a Nissan Micra (195/55 R15 V) on mostly country roads for 20,000 average miles
I have fitted those surprisingly good tires replacing some ridiculous narrow 175/60 R15 Maxxis something, now my Micra K13 (called March in Brazil) has as much grip as its power requires. I have been searching alot to choose those and I coudnt be happier with them! Its very silent and comfortable, the dry grip is what you would expect from a good non sport tyre but the wet grip is where u can see its quality!
