Every year, the German publication Auto Bild selects a tyre size, finds as many winter tyres as possible in that size, and tests them all in wet braking. The top thirty tyres proceed to snow braking, then the top twenty overall to the full winter tyre test.

For the 2020 winter tyre test, Auto Bild rounded up fifty one winter tyres in the rather huge 245/45 R18 size, and a summer tyre as reference.

This is the best overview of the winter tyre market we will get all year, and make sure you come back to Tyre Reviews tomorrow for the full test, where the top 20 will be put through a full range of dry, wet, snow and ice testing.
