2018 New and Worn Summer Tyre Test


This year the Hungarian publication Auto Navigator have tested fourteen 205/55 R16 summer tyres, but also included an all season tyre (the Michelin CrossClimate), a full winter tyre, and most interestingly worn summer and winter tyres.

It's important to note that the worn winter tyre used was from last years test, whereas the worn summer tyre was 7 years old and had been stored in "sub optimal conditions" which put the tyre at a huge disadvantage. While the tread depth of each of the worn tyres wasn't listed, the magazine article indicated the tyres still had good tread depth, rather than at the legal limit of 1.6mm.

All tests were performed around 15c air temperature. Sadly aquaplaning wasn't tested by the magazine.
