Autonavigator: Summer Tire Test R16 2019

Summer tire test 2019: measuring the skills of the most popular tires. Spring is here, so we set out to compare 18 sets of tires to be able to demonstrate why you should switch to summer tires and what are your best options, by relying on our own results.

We set out to do some testing, using 205/55 R16 size tires. Initially, our tests looked at the 195/65 R15 size, being the most widely sold tire size (in Hungary), whilst today 205/55 R16 is the basic size of the compact segment, implying the highest number of tires sold. We again used the popular Skoda Octavia model for the test.
