2018 27 All Season Tyre Shootout

As with the Auto Bild winter tyre test, the excellent German publication have placed a large number of all season tyres through wet and dry braking tests in order to find the top ten tyres for the full all season tyre test, which will include broader wet and dry testing, plus the inclusion of snow running.

In total 27 all season tyre patterns were tested in the popular 195/65 R15 size, and the spread of best to worst proved to be worringly large!

The best in the wet and dry proved to be the new Bridgestone Weather Control A005, beating the dry master Michelin CrossClimate by 1.4 meters in the dry, and a huge 2.9 meters in the wet!

The rest of the premium players proved to be more evenly matched, with Michelin, Goodyear, Hankook and Continental all covered by just a few meters. Vredestein, Falken and Nexen were all inside a comfortable window too.

The further down the table you go, the more worrying (or dangerous) some of the results get. By 18th place the combined wet and dry stopping distance is already over 15 meters more than the best on test, and the worst tyre on test is a combined 22 meters behind the winning Bridgestone. The majority of this disadantage is in the wet, which again highlights the importance of fitting the RIGHT all season tyre for the rainy UK climate.

The full list is below, and be sure to come back to the Tyre Reviews website in a few weeks for the results of the top 10 shootout. Also, don't forget to watch our "Top 7 All Season Tyres" video!
