GTÜ/ACE/ARBÖ: All-Season Tire Test R16 2019

Due to the fact that European winters become milder and milder, all-season tires sell better and better in this region. But are these tires a good choice or maybe a compromise in the conditions of global warming? This question was investigated by the expert groups of the German vehicle inspection organization GTÜ, German motoring organization ACE, and Austrian motoring club ARBÖ.

They tested eight all-season tire models in the size of 205/60 R16, which fits both midsized sedans, such as BMW 3 and Audi A4, and for vans, such as Peugeot Partner and Citroën Berlingo, as well as for minivans, such as Renault Scenic and VW Sharan.
