ADAC/Wolfgang Grube© www.de24.news The  wet brake test is once again an important part of the ADAC summer tire test this year

Every year the ADAC tests tires for the coming summer. This year 32 tires for mid-range and lower mid-range vehicles. Overall, there were few outliers, up or down – the grade “very good” was not given at all.

 The  result: predominantly “good” and “satisfactory”, only once each “sufficient” and “poor”. However, there were outliers in the respective individual disciplines among the total of 32 tires for mid-range and lower-mid-range vehicles: Many tires were not particularly convincing on wet roads and some tire treads were worn out very quickly when it came to wear.

Firestone Roadhawk fails completely!

In the category of tires for mid-range vehicles (tire size 225/50 R17), the Firestone Roadhawk failed completely with a 4.9 and thus the worst mark in the test. © www.de24.news

 The  reason for this was the poor performance on wet roads: when braking wet from a speed of 80 km / h, it came to a stop almost two vehicle lengths later than the front-runner Semperit Speed-Life 3 in this discipline. © www.de24.news

 The  Firestone Roadhawk, however, is the only tire that the ADAC cannot recommend at all.

Continental and Bridgestone ahead in both categories

 The  four tires rated “good” in this dimension were the Falken Azenis, the Continental PremiumContact 6, the Kumho Ecsta PS71 and the Bridgestone Turanza. All of them are characterized by all-round qualities and are convincing in both wet and dry conditions. © www.de24.news

 The y were also economical in terms of wear and tear.

 The  ADAC ranked the Semperit Speed-Life 3 between the two. All three performed well in the various individual categories.

At the bottom of this category was the only retreaded tire in this year’s test: © www.de24.news The  King Meiler Sport 1 not only has the second longest dry braking distance, but also shows poor performance, especially on wet roads. It is also very loud. “Although a reconditioned tire scores with resource conservation and a low price, this model is at the expense of safety,” explains ADAC test manager Dino Silvestro. A further development of the retreaded tires is therefore necessary.

 The  ADAC advises that when buying tires, make sure that all four tires have the same production date and thus the same technical standard. It is also advisable to take a close look at the performance in the individual disciplines and choose a tire according to your own driving profile.
