2023 AutoBild UHP Summer Tyre Test

Following on from the fifty tyre braking shootout, Autobild have put the best twenty summer tyres through a full tyre test and included a budget reference tyre, which performed terribly!

The biggest advantage of an Autobild tyre test? They include a wear test, this year done on a machine, so scroll down the page to see each tyres estimated mileage and take note of how that affects the overall result!

There are some very interesting points to note from this test:

  • The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 not only won overall, but had the lowest wear of all twenty tyres, performing even better than the new Michelin Pilot Sport 5! This proves the Asymmetric 6 is an incredibly balanced tyre.
  • The Linglong Sport Master surprising appearance in the top twenty can now be understood, it had the highest wear on test, predicted to be worn out in just 27,600km compared to the Goodyears 63,200km.
  • GT Radial will be both surprised and impressed with the SportActive 2 finishing in fourth place overall! The sister Giti GitiSportS2, which should be very similar, could only finish seventeenth.
  • We had high hopes for the new Yokohama Advan Sport V107, but it disappointed in fifteenth overall. It performed well in the grip tests but was deranked due to high wear / cost.
  • Like the Yokohama, the Hankook and Pirelli both performed really well in the grip tests, but were degraded due to very high wear.
  • Conversely the new Bridgestone Turanza 6 finish fifth overall, with a pretty average performance all the grip tests.

Perhaps the thing to watch for the most, is if you want grip, or wear, or rolling resistance, or everything. Tyres like the Pirelli, Hankook and Yokohama were at the front for almost all the grip tests, but were massively deranked due to a bad score in one category. 

Wet

Hankook and Pirelli led wet braking, with the new PremiumContact 7 in third. The new Yokohama Advan Sport V107 performed well in fourth overall.

The unnamed cheap tyre was a total disaster, stopping in almost twice the distance of the best!

Wet handling had similar leaders, with the Pirelli, Goodyear and Continental proving to be the fastest around the lap.

The Uniroyal RainSport 5 was the best in the deeper water of straight aquaplaning.

Dry

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 was back at the front for dry braking, with the Hankook, Yokohama and Continental rounding out the top four.

The Pirelli, Goodyear, Continental and Yokohama were also at the front for dry handling.

Environment

During the tread life test, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 beat the new Michelin Pilot Sport 5 and Continental PremiumContact 7 to have the best wear overall. The new Falken Azenis FK520 also performed well.

The Yokohama, Pirelli, Toyo, Giti and Linglong all performed poorly.

The value score, which is the treadwear against purchase price resulted in the Goodyear being the best value for money costing less than half that of the Pirelli P Zero PZ4.

The tyre purchases prices can be found below for reference.

The new Bridgestone Turanza 6 had by far the lowest rolling resistance.

The Kleber Dynaxer UHP was the quietest tyre on test in the passby noise test.
