2017 Auto Bild Summer Tyre Shootout

This year Auto Bild have taken 52 summer tyres in 225/50 R17, put them through wet and dry braking, and taken the top 20 through to a full tyre test.

This year there are new tyre patterns by Continental, Bridgestone Fulda, Sava and Toyo. Sadly Michelin are being represented by the Primacy 3, not the new Pilot Sport 4.

Below is the result of the wet and dry braking, and almost unsurprisingly Continental win the first test of 2017 with the new Premium Contact 6.

The main surprises? Bridgestone have a really strong wet braking result, winning the wet test where usually they struggle to perform, Falken have upset some of the big brands with an excellent balanced performance, and the well regarded Nokian has been beaten by brands like Maxxis and Leao (who are a new brand for 2017!)

The full test result will be published in March.
