2013 54 Tyre Braking Test

54 tyres summer touring tyres in 195/65 R15, wet and dry braking, measure the distance. A very simple test gives us a very good overview of the market.

Points to note? The new Dunlop continues to score extremely well, surprisingly Viking manages to get into the top 15, there's a few terrible budget tyres we'd never heard of, and the inclusion of four all season tyres show exactly how much braking you're giving away in the summer months if you chose to run one year round.

All the results below are based on how much further than the benchmark tyre they took to stop. The best in the dry was the Dunlop at 35.5 metres, and the best in the wet was the Continental at 42.5 metres.

Enjoy the big table. Any questions / comments, feel free to post below.
