With summer sadly coming to an end, now is a great time to start thinking about switching to all season or winter tyre options.

To help this purchase decision, German publication Auto Bild publish the results of their pre-tests, which are designed to help them select the best all season tyres to send through to their full all season tyre test.

This year Auto Bild have tested 31 all season tyres in 225/45 R17 in wet and dry braking, and the top ten will go through to the full test due next month.

Notable Performances

Once again, the new Bridgestone Weather Control A005 looks to be a great choice in the UK, with the shortest wet and nearly the shortest dry braking distances, even beating the dry optimised specialist of the Michelin CrossClimate+.

The new Vredestein Quatrac Pro also had an excellent result, finishing third thanks to an extremely strong wet result, and the Maxxis AP3 was the strongest tyre in the dry, finishing fourth.

Sadly the Falken and Nokian didn't make the top ten. The Nokian WeatherProof in particular is a heavily snow bias all season tyre, so it's no huge surprise it struggled in wet and dry testing.

It's also worth noting, the best tyres on test stopped the vehicle in less distance in the wet than the worst tyres did in the dry, and with a near 20 meter spread in the wet, it goes to show that cheap all season tyres are more dangerous than cheap summer tyres.

Results below, and be sure to come back in a few weeks for the full all season test results.
