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.

I've used tires from well-known Pirelli, Firestone and Goodyear brands, and I'm pretty sure Barum is the best tire I've had since Michelin. A great tire for a great price!
They are not very beautiful but they are great.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat Punto Mk2b Sporting 1.4 (195/50 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 60 spirited miles
This is the initial review of them after driven 60 miles (30 on dry and extreme hot weather of Greece on a mountain road and 30 on a very wet motorway with lots of trapped water - perfect for testing aquaplanning).

I substituted 4 Michelin PS3 that had been on the car for 2 1/2 years and 47500 km (30000 miles). They were awful after 10-15k, although the thread depth was within the legal limit. Actually the rear had plenty left. They were really performing bad on the hot dry tarmac during the Greek summer. Were awful last year, still awful this year :p

Barum are as expected, not a sport tire, extremely good initial grip, good aquaplaning resistance and very comfortable ride as they are quite soft. You can easily drive fast with these, just the handling is not as great as with a stiffer sidewall tire.
