The ACE / GTU tyre test is always a funny one, as they go to a lot of effort to test the tyres, but then provide no data at all, only the overview scores.

For this reason, we always keep the commentary low, but it's important to have the test results on Tyre Reviews, as the more tests published the better right?

This year, ACE have tested nine 205/55 R16 patterns using a Skoda Octavia Estate. ACE put a large percentage of the score weighting on wet performance, which has led to the first victory for the new Nokian WetProof!

The full results of the test are super close, so keep in mind just because a tyre is mid-table, doesn't make it a bad tyre.
