Featured: 2020 Tyre Market Overview Braking Test

Every year the German publication Auto Bild performs the industries most comprehensive tyre test by putting a huge number of tyres through wet and dry braking, to find the best twenty tyres to progress through to a full tyre test.

For the 2020 summer season, Auto Bild have tested fifty tyres in 245/45 R18, which gives us an excellent overview of the UHP market for 2020.

Michelin X Ice Snow - Launched

The new Michelin X-Ice Snow replaces the Michelin X-Ice Xi3, and the Michelin X-Ice Snow SUV replaces the the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2.

The new X-Ice Snow is a Nordic compound studless winter tyre, designed for the more extreme winter conditions of Northern Europe and parts of North America. Thanks to the improvements in technology in studless winter tyres, the market share is going, with the Finnish studded market dropping from 50% of all winter tyres sold in 2013, to 37% in 2019.

In their second SUV / 4x4 all season tyre test of 2019, Auto Bild have tested ten all season tyres in 235/65 R17, and included the usual summer and winter tyre as benchmarks.

For their third winter tyre test of 2019, Auto Bild have stepped up the fun and fitted an Audi S5 with eleven sets of 255/35 R19 ultra high performance winter tyres, and included the usual set of reference summer tyres!

Following on from a win in Auto Express, the new Goodyear UltraGrip Performance+ takes its second win of 2019, once again proving to have a near flawless blend of qualities. Vredestein have also continued their run of good results with a very strong second place for the Wintrac Pro. This tyre is significantly cheaper than the premium winter tyres in the UK, so is probably the best choice if you need to save a few pounds.

The weekly UK publication Auto Express has just published their 2019 all season tyre test! This year Auto Express tested nine all season tyre patterns in 205/55 R16 using a VW Golf.

As in previous years, Auto Express have included a summer and winter tyre as reference. Shockingly, the summer Continental PremiumContact 5 was the best in dry overall, near the best in wet, and fell apart in snow. Things get more interesting when we compare the winter Continental WinterContact TS860 to the all season tyres on test.

It's winter testing time, and as always, Auto Bild are leading the way! Following on from the 53 winter tyre shoot-out, Auto Bild have taken the top twenty 225/45 R17 tyres through to the full test, along with a summer tyre as reference. Each set of tyres has been tested in the dry, wet and snow using a RWD BMW 1 Series, and Auto Bild are one of the few publications which test for wear. It's an exciting test! (if you're into tyres...)

Following on from the All Season tyre market overview, Auto Bild have published their winter version of the shootout style braking test.

For the winter test, Auto Bild have tested 53 winter tyres in 225/45 R17 in wet and snow braking. The two braking distances are combined, and the top twenty tyres go through to a full test covering all aspects of a tyres performance.

For the first time in 2020, Tyre Reviews will be performing its own all season tyre test, but until then, the Auto Bild all season tyre test is the best you can get! Testing ten sets of all season tyres in 225/45 R17 using a BMW 1 Series, and including a summer and winter tyre as reference, Auto Bild have done as thorough a job as ever for their 2019 all season tyre test.

The most notable performances follow the trends other tests have shown during 2019. The new Bridgestone WeatherControl A005 couldn't deliver on the foundations laid by the strong wet and dry braking performance in the shootout test, finishing ninth overall due to a very average snow performance, but more importantly for UK drivers, very high wear.

This year the German motoring organisation ADAC have tested sixteen winter tyres in the popular 185/65 R15.

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, the excellent German publication Auto Bild publish the results of their pre-tests, in order to 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.

2019 AMS Winter SUV Tyre Test

Warning, lots of data ahead! For the 2019 winter, Auto Motor und Sport have tested eleven of the best winter tyres in the 215/55 R17 crossover SUV size.

The biggest plus of this test is the sheer amount of data they've produced, as they've rated the tyres both objectively and subjectively in a lot of categories.

Earlier this year Auto Bild published their 2019 SUV all season tyre test, using an Audi Q3 wearing the popular 235/55 R19 all season tyre size.

As usual, all seven tyre patterns were tested in the dry, wet and snow, and as a reference, Auto Bild included a premium summer and winter tyre.
