Following on from the massive 53 tyre braking test, Auto Bild have taken the best twenty 205/55 R16 tyres through to further testing, which includes wet and dry handling, aquaplaning, rolling resistance, noise, and a rarity in tyre testing, wear!

As the 2021 Tyre Reviews summer test is covering UHP and SUV sizes, this will be the most complete reference we have this year for the 16" summer tyre market, however if you'd like to watch a 16" summer tyre test, you can check out ours from last year here.

Wear

Wear is a key part of a tyres performance, but due to the time and costs involved in conducting accurate wear testing there aren't many publications which regularly test the tread life of the tyres. Auto Bild are one of the few magazines which conduct wear testing, but even this is still drum testing on a bench and not real world road wear testing!

The wear difference between the best and worst tyre on tests is huge, with the best on test projected to cover 47,940 km, and the worst 26,180 km. That's a 60% difference in tyre life!

The best on test wasn't the usual Michelin Primacy 4, that had to settle for a very respectable second place overall, but instead the new Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 made good on its promise from 2020 and aced the test. Goodyear made some bold claims about the tyres mileage in 2020, and it's great to see them backed up with further data.

The newly updated Kumho Ecsta HS51 finished third, just ahead of the Continental PremiumContact 6 in fourth, once again confirming that the wear issues Continental have experienced in the past are long behind them.

The losers of the test were sadly Pirelli, Hankook, Dunlop and Nokian, which all performed badly in the wear test. This was compounded when Auto Bild combined the projected tyre life with the purchase price to give you a price per 1000 kilometers driven, meaning the Pirelli Cinturato P7 C2 was almost twice the cost per mile driven compared to the Goodyear.

One final thing to note, tread life is only one aspect of wear, the other is how the tyre performs when worn. This isn't something Auto Bild have tested, but is something Tyre Reviews hopes to test in the near future!

Dry

In the dry, the Hankook Ventus Prime3 has a significant advantage in both dry braking and dry handling. The Pirelli Cinturato P7 C2, Kumho HS51 and Maxxis Premitra HP5 also performed well.

Strangely, some of the tyres that did well in dry braking, didn't perform too well in dry handling. The second placed Pirelli could only manage a midpack result during the dry handling lap, the the BF Goodrich Advantage performed really well over the handling lap, in spite of being one of the worst during the dry braking testing!

Wet

Hankook again proved its calibre as a good braking tyre, finishing first in the wet braking test, while the Continental PremiumContact 6 and Pirelli rounded out the top three positions. The new Toyo Proxes Comfort seemed to struggle in the wet, but not as much as the Fulda EcoControl HP2.

In a change of form for the Firestone Roadhawk, it found itself as the fastest tyre around the wet handling lap, tying with Kumho. Again, Pirelli proved to be an impressive tyre finishing in third place.

As we've come to expect from aquaplaning, the Uniroyal Rainsport 5 won the straight aquaplaning test, and impressively the Kumho was second place, which is surprising for a tyre with so much dry and wet grip.

Environment

If you're looking for a quiet and comfortable tyre, this test has the Kleber Dynaxer HP4 and Michelin Primacy 4 leading the way.

Bridgestone offered the lowest rolling resistance.

Results

It's an interesting result overall. Clearly the Kumho Ecsta HS51 has had a big update this year, and Continental will be happy with second and third place overall (Semperit is owned by Continental.) Unfortunately for Goodyear, their sub brand Debica beat the main brand, with the Presto HP2 looking to be a tyre which offers exceptional value.
