ADAC: Summer SUV Tire Test R16 2017

15 summer tires for light SUV in the dimension 215/65 R16 H has been tested by the ADAC. Two very well-balanced tire models achieve the ADAC judgment "good", "eleven models show slight or significant weaknesses in one or more criteria and therefore get the ADAC judgment" satisfactory ". Due to pronounced weakness in the criterion of wetness, a tire model does not go beyond an ADAC judgment "sufficient". A test participant performs so poorly on wet that it receives the ADAC rating "poor". Six of the summer tires tested carry an M+S flank identification, which has some justification on two models for satisfactory braking and traction on snow.
