Featured: The Best All Season Tyres for 2024

For the longest time the Michelin CrossClimate 2 has been the best all season / all weather tyre on the market, winning more tests than any other tyres in its category, including my tests for the last 3 years!

However, since last year's test there have been not one, not two, but three new premium all season tyres launched, all looking to dethrone the CrossClimate 2 from its category top spot. 

Naturally I had to find out whether any of these new tyres from Bridgestone, Continental and Pirelli can match the Michelin, so as usual I'll be testing everything, including wear, to see which is best! And I've also thrown in a couple of tyres Dunlop and Yokohama, because why not.

Can any of these new tyres really challenge the CrossClimate 2, or are they all going to be left wanting for more?

Featured: 2023 Tyre Reviews Performance Tyre Test

This is the most in depth tyre test Tyre Reviews has ever performed! This UHP summer tyre test will compare six of the very best ultra high performance tyres, and including a full wear test, some cooler temperature testing, and worn state testing!

On test we have the latest and greatest 18" sports tyres from Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear, Hankook, Michelin and Yokohama. As usual we'll be covering every aspect of the tyres performance, including the wet performance, dry grip, internal noise, comfort, rolling resistance and the all important wear!

Featured: 2023 Tyre Reviews Best Summer Tyres

In this test, we'll be finding out what the best premium touring summer tyres on the market are!

I'm going to try and keep this as condensed as I possibly can as we have 13 sets of tyres in this test including the newest and best from Continental, Michelin, Hankook, Pirelli, Bridgestone, Vredestein, Kumho, Toyo, Nankang and more! This should also be the world's first test of the Continental PremiumContact 7!

Featured: 2022/23 Best 9 All Terrain Tyres

In this test we'll be testing nine of the most popular all terrain tyres to see which has the most grip in the dry, wet, AND offroad, and also to see which uses the least gas, and which has the best comfort and lowest noise in the real world. Basically, everything you'll ever need to know about these all terrain tyres!

2024 ADAC All Season Tyre Test

Famously, ADAC are not fans of all season tyres, seeing them as too compromised for year round motoring and insisting that a summer and winter tyre combination is superior.

This means ADAC have not tested all season tyres since 2020, so lets see if the modern batch of all season tyres can change ADACs mind!

The BEST Track Day Tyres for 2024

If you enjoy going fast, the Porsche 992 911 GT3 RS is the track car to own, and what use is the best track car without the best track tyres?

Porsche offers six different tyre options specifically homologated for the GT3 RS, and the wonderful people at Autobild have tested them all! 

The tyres on test are the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R, brand new Pirelli P Zero Trofeo RS, and Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport RS - and the three more street-oriented options - the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2, Pirelli P Zero Corsa, and Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport R.

Fastest tyre in the world

While the tyres were tested in the wet, most of the scoring was based on the dry performance. The tyres were tested on both a single lap of the long punishing Nardo test facility, and long six lap runs.

We're finally going to find out what the fastest tyre in the world is, and the result might surprise you!

Best Motorcycle Tyres for 2024

As motorcycle enthusiasts, we all know that choosing the right set of tyres is crucial for a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable ride. Sadly, I'm not a good enough rider to do motorbike testing myself, so that's where the annual Motorrad motorcycle touring tyre test comes in.

For the 2024 edition, Motorrad has put six of the most popular touring tyres in the 120/70 ZR 17 front and 180/55 ZR 17 rear sizes to the test. The contenders are the Bridgestone Battlax T 32, Continental RoadAttack 4 GT, Dunlop Roadsmart IV GT, Metzeler Roadtec 02, Michelin Road 6 GT, and Pirelli Angel GT II.

2024 EV Tyre Test

The Auto Bild 2024 summer tyre test for electric vehicles (EVs) in the 235/55 R19 size aimed to compare the performance of standard and specialized EV tyres to determine if EV-specific tyres offer significant advantages over their conventional counterparts. The test included eight tyre models: the Continental PremiumContact 7, Falken e.Ziex [ev specific], Hankook iON evo SUV [ev specific], Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6, GT Radial SportActive 2 EV [ev specific], Bridgestone Potenza Sport, and Goodride ZuperEco Z-107.

2024 Sports Car All Season Tyre Test

This year Autobild has published a second all season tyre test, this time in their sports car specific publication. The test uses a sporty Subaru BRZ to test eleven sets of 225/40 R18 all season tyres in the dry, wet and snow.

To help illustrate the differences between all season, summer and winter tyres the tester included a reference summer and winter tyre. Overall the tyres performed as you would expect, the summer tyre was by far the best in the dry and wet, but dangerously unusable in the snow and had the highest rolling resistance (which was a bit of a surprise), whereas the winter tyre was almost last in every dry and wet test, but performed much better in the snow (but not the best in snow braking or snow handling!)

BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO3 Sizes Unveiled for 2024

Continuing from it's OE only launch in 2023, new aftermarket sizes of the BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO3 will finally start hitting tyre shops in 2024!

The KO3 promises to build upon the legendary KO2, bringing enhanced off-road toughness and improved on-road performance, and here at Tyre Reviews we're very excited to test it.

2024 Summer SUV Tyre Test

In a data-extravaganza, Autobild have taken eleven SUV summer tyres in the popular 235/55 R19 size, and even though this size is an ultrahigh performance fitment, and is fitted to soft-roaders such as the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Honda CR-V and many others, tested them exhaustively in off-road tests along with the usual dry and wet testing!

2024 Sport Auto Summer Tyre Test

The 2024 summer tyre test conducted by Sport Auto magazine compared five premium-category summer tyres against an all-season tyre on a Hyundai i20 N. The test aimed to determine if the all-season tyre could compete with the best summer tyres had to offer during warm (approximately 25c / 77f air temperature) conditions.

2024 Sports Car Tyre Test

Every year Autobild Sports Cars aims to go big, and this year they've literally have, testing UUHP summer tyres! In search for the sportiest performance tyre, they used a Mercedes AMG test vehicle which is fitted with 265/35 R19 front and 295/30 R20 rear tyres.

As usual the excellent drivers at AutoBild put seven sets of UUHP / maximum performance tyres to the test in the dry and wet, as well as testing the rolling resistance and noise levels of the tyres.

It's a good bunch of tyres, and includes the brand new Vredestein Ultrac Pro (which replaces the Ultrac Vorti) against the very best in the category.

2024 AutoBild Summer Tyre Test

The 2024 AutoBild Summer Tyre Test reviewed 20 premium touring summer tyres in size 205/55 R16. The test focused on several key performance indicators including dry and wet braking, handling, noise, wear, value, and rolling resistance. 

Michelin Primacy 4+ ranked first, demonstrating a balanced performance with short braking distances and high efficiency. Continental PremiumContact 7 and Bridgestone Turanza 6 followed, showing strong wet and dry road performance and low wear levels.

2024 ADAC Summer Tyre Test

The 2024 ADAC summer tyre test tested sixteen tyres in the popular 215/55 R17 size.

2024 Summer Tyre Market Overview

One again Auto Bild prove that they're one of the best in the game, this year testing 55 different summer tyres in a wet and dry braking test to find the best twenty summer tyres to take through to their full test!

This year they've tested the most popular size on the market, 205/55 R16 which comes fitted to a huge amount of vehicles, including the ever popular VW Golf.

Nokian Remedy WRG5 - Launched

Nokian Remedy WRG5As the popularity of all-weather tyres rapidly grows in many areas of North America, Nokian has refreshed its offering to cater to this market. The new Nokian Remedy WRG5 replaces the much loved Nokian WRG4, and offers improved snow and ice traction, and higher levels of wet grip over the WRG4, without sacrificing rolling resistance or dry/wet handling.

Falken Wildpeak AT4W - Launched

One of the most popular all terrain tyres on the market, the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W, has just been replaced by the Falken Wildpeak A/T4W, and it looks to be an exciting update!

With the A/T3W being such a popular tyre, Falken have smartly decided to go with an evolution rather than revolution. This means Falken have kept what we love about the all terrain tyre, such as the excellent wet grip, and the snow performance of the tyre, and added where they believe customers will get the most benefit - even more off-road ability and another 15,000 miles on the tread life warranty, totalling 65,000 miles!

2023/24 Tyre Reviews UHP Winter Tyre Test

The 2023 Tyre Reviews UHP winter tyre test was an unusual test for Tyre Reviews. Due to travel schedules I was unable to drive the snow part of the testing, and as these tyres have been tested before this year I wouldn't have usually run such a similar test again, but this one had the possibility of a real world wear test which is hard to say no to. 

The results, well they are very interesting and shine a new light on some of the products tested.

Nokian Outpost nAT vs Hakkapeliitta R5 vs WRG4 vs One

The new Nokian Outpost nAT claims to be an all terrain tyre you can use in snow, but how good is it? Nokian invented winter tyres, so they're pretty confident, so confident in fact they suggested we test it against the king of winter tyres, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R5, along with their much loved all weather tyre, the Nokian WRG4 SUV, and their high mileage all season tyre, the Nokian One SUV.

Before we start, it's worth noting that three of the tyres are 3PMSF marked, which is the 3 peak mountain snowflake symbol, sometimes called "severe snow rating". The Winter, All Weather and All Terrain tyres carry the 3PMSF marking, but the all season does not. The test size was 265/65 R17, and we used a Toyota Hilux for the test in RWD only mode.

2023/24 Best All Terrain Tyres In Snow

Following on from last years on-road and off-road test of nine all terrain tyres, we've taken seven of them through to a full snow test, and tested them against the one of the best rated US all season tyres, the Michelin Defender LTX and our favourite winter tyre, the Michelin X-Ice Snow (SUV variant).

As the group of all terrain tyres is a mix of snow rated and non snow rated all terrain tyres, it means we'll not only know what the best all terrain tyre is on snow, but we can also answer whether a snow rating is worth purely basing your purchase decision on, AND we'll be able to find out if a very good snow rated all terrain tyre is a safe replacement for a winter tyre in the snow.

2023 Auto Bild All Season Tyre Test

Following on from the 35 all season shootout, Autobild have placed the top 15 through the usual array of tests, including dry, wet and snow testing, plus they've tested wear!

Unlike the Tyre Reviews test this year, they also managed to test the new Bridgestone Turanza All Season 6 and Continental AllSeasonContact 2! Can either of these new tyres displace the Michelin CrossClimate 2 at the top of the results? Read on to find out!

2023 Tyre Reviews UHP All Season Tyre Test

In this test I'll be comparing 7 of the most popular ultra high performance all season tires to find out which tire is best for you.

If you've read any of my previous all season tests, you'll be happy to know that six of the tires in this test I've never tested before, and they include the brand new Pirelli P Zero AS 3 Plus and the brand new Falken Azenis FK460AS. The tire I have tested before is one of the benchmarks of the segment, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS06+, so if you want to, you'll have a cross reference points to compare the tires in this test to the tires in the previous tests.

As always I'll be digging into the dry, wet, comfort and noise performance of the tires, then in a later test I'll be looking at the snow performance, to give you a really complete overview of the tires performances.

Michelin Pilot Sport VS EV Specific Performance Tyres

At Tyre Reviews, we frequently receive inquiries from electric vehicle (EV) owners about whether they should continue using the original equipment (OE) tyres designed for their EVs, switch to a newer specific EV tyre, or opt for a standard aftermarket tyre. It seems that German publication AutoBild has encountered similar questions, as they recently conducted a test comparing three tyre types on a Tesla Model S.

In this test, AutoBild compared the OE Michelin Pilot Sport 3, the latest aftermarket version (Michelin Pilot Sport 5), and the new EV-specific aftermarket tyre, the Hankook iON Evo. This examination addresses numerous concerns and provides valuable insights for EV owners.

Exclusive: The Michelin Pilot Sport S 5 is here!

In this article I'll be sharing exclusive information about the brand new Michelin Pilot Sport S 5!

If you're reading this article I'm 100% sure you will already know all about the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S, which is still, after 6 years, one of the best ultra high performance tyres you can buy today.

The PS4S has such a HUGE amount of popularity online, I get asked almost daily when the replacement for this tyre will be launched, and I'm really happy to stay, NOW is that TIME! Well, sort of… The new tyre we're talking about today is the Michelin Pilot Sport S 5, and yes there's subtle change in the naming scheme, more on that in a bit.
