ADAC: Summer Tire Test R17 2020

Last year’s test of commercial tires in the dimension 215/65 R16C, which ADAC performed by the same procedure that it used for testing passenger-car tires, elicited mediocre results from most of the models. This is why this year the publication’s experts decided to conduct a test of summer tires in size 235/55 R17, which can be fitted both on midsize SUVs and light minivans.
