2023 ADAC 16 Inch Tyre Test - 16th of 16 tyres

  • Overall - The AUSTONE ATHENA SP-901 provides barely adequate steering feedback and is imprecise on dry roads, requiring constant corrections. It tends to oversteer early in dynamic maneuvers, earning it a barely adequate rating for limit behavior. Its braking performance on dry roads is average but rated as good. On wet roads, the tyre struggles significantly. Its braking distance is rated as barely adequate, and while it earns a satisfactory rating for longitudinal aquaplaning, it performs poorly in lateral aquaplaning and handling due to low grip levels and early understeer/oversteer tendencies. On winter roads, however, the tyre excels, showing the best behavior in the test. It handles securely and precisely on snow, with good results in braking and traction tests. Its ice braking performance is rated as satisfactory. Environmentally, the tyre misses a good rating. Its projected lifespan is rated as satisfactory, and although its wear is rated as good, its high weight results in an adequate efficiency rating.

    Top 3 Austone SP 901 Reviews

    Given 44% while driving a Toyota RAV4 (225/60 R16) on a combination of roads for 19,000 easy going miles
    Tires feel fine on dry roads but on wet roads they fall off. Snow grip is good, ice grip is non-existent. Tires wear pretty evenly and probably have another 20-25 thousand miles on the road. Tires are noisy, especially in the wet. Bumpy roads are a nightmare. Would not recommend as you can get something much better for a few more bucks.
