We're going to let the test do the talking for this one. The excellent Swedish testers at ViBilagare have tested eight SUV studless friction winter tyres, included the new Nokian Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV and Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V3 using a Volvo V40 wearing 235/55 R18 tires. Fortunately, where the tyre patterns match those in the Tyre Reviews Nordic Winter Tyre Test, the results are very similar!
Sadly here at Tyre Reviews we've not had time to do a studded tyre test for 2022, but fortunately the excellent testers at the Nordic publication Vibilagare have tested eight sets of studded winter tyres to show us which of the studded tyres on the market are the best! While the test size is an SUV size (235/55 R18) and the test vehicle a Volvo XC40, these results should give you an idea of the balance between the tyres in all sizes.
As you would hope, the tyres have been tested in the dry, wet, snow and ice. Which is of course the reason studded tyres exist.
The data is interesting, and in full below, but as we saw in the Tyre Reviews Studless Winter Tyre Test there is a pretty clear inversion between the tyres which priorities wet performance, and the tyres which priorities ice performance.
In this mini test I compare the plus version of the best ultra high performance all season tires on the market, the Bridgestone Potenza RE980AS+, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 Plus, the Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 and the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus in the dry, wet and snow to see which is the best tire overall! Can the current champion, the Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 retain it's lead? Only one way to find out!
The 2022 Auto Bild Sports Car UHP Winter Tyre Test has tested nine popular performance winter tyres in the large 245/40 R19 size using a Cupra Formenta.
The testing heros at Sport Auto have answered a question we've all wanted to know the answer to! Just how good are all season tyres in large wheel sizes on a performance vehicle?
To answer this, Sport Auto have tested six of the best all season tyres, and included a NAMED summer and winter tyre, the Bridgestone Potenza Sport UUHP summer tyre, and the test winning Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 winter tyre.
It's a good test.
Following on from the fifty six winter tyre braking shootout, these are the top twenty winter tyres in the full Auto Bild Full Winter Tyre Test!
As with the Auto Bild All Season tyre test, Auto Bild have performed one of the best winter tyre tests of the year, and have even tested wear! Overall the results are going to cause a little confusion, as the Michelin Alpin 6 wins this test overall, after performing relatively poorly in the 2022/23 Tyre Reviews Winter Tyre Test.
While the test sizes are similar, both 17" wheels, it's important to note that the Tyre Reviews test was 225/45 R17 and this test 215/55 R17. This result for the Alpin 6 is far more in line with the norm for the French winter tyre, which makes us further believe there was a problem with the tyres we tested this year. In short, there's no need to avoid the Michelin Alpin 6!
The 2022 Auto Bild SUV tyre test has tested ten sets of performance suv winter tyres in the popular 225/45 R19 size using a BMW X1, and included a reference summer tyre so we can compare the differences.
Auto Bild tests are always amongst the best in the industry, and this year Auto Bild have taken things a step further. Not only did Auto Bild start with 25 all season tyres in the popular 195/55 R16 size and test them in dry and wet braking to get the best 15 for the full test below, they've also tested things Tyre Reviews was unable to test in the Tyre Reviews 2022 all season tyre test, including real world fuel use, the all important wear test, and new for this year, they tracked the abrasion of the tyres to see which tyre gives off the least particulates to the environment, which is separate from projected tyre life!
Snow tyres, studless friction tyres, extreme winter tyres, nordic winter tyres. This category of tyre goes by many names, and they have one design goal, to be the very best on snow and ice for harsh winter climates, where studded tyres aren't appropriate, or for people who don't want studs.
To find out which is the best, Tyre Reviews has taken 7 of the most popular tyres available to both the North American and Nordic markets, and will be putting them through a full range of tests, including ice, snow, wet and dry testing to find out which is best at what. Also, to help you understand where these tyres fit in the market, I'm also including the very best of the central european and studded winter tyres, the Continental WinterContact TS870 and the studded Nokian Happapelliita 10.
Once again the German publication Auto Bild have tested more winter tyres than anyone else in 2022! This years Auto Bild Winter Tyre Test starts with 56 winter tyres in 215/55 R17 which are all put through a wet braking test, with the top 30 also placed in a snow braking test, then the top 20 will be carried over to the full test.
For this year's Tyre Reviews winter tyre test, we've got nine sets of the most popular winter tyres, half of which are brand new tyres for this year!
As always I'll be testing in the snow, wet and dry, and looking at rolling resistance, noise and comfort, to ensure you get the best overview of all the new winter tyres!
The 2022 Auto Zeitung performance winter tyre test has tested eight popular winter tyres in 225/45 R17.
Continental, Bridgestone and Michelin all perform well, with the Continental WinterContact TS870 taking another win in 2022 winter tyre tests thanks to a well balanced performance in all conditions, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 performing extremely well in the dry and wet, and the Michelin Alpin 6 offering good grip in all conditions.
Once a year, the wonderful people at the German publication Auto Bild take a huge number of all season tyres through a wet and dry braking, to find the very best to include in their full test.
Fortunately, this year is no different, and below you'll find the wet and dry braking results of thirty five all season tyres, and a summer and winter reference tyre, with the top fifteen going through to the full test which will be on the site next week.
