Auto Bild: All-Season Tire Test R16 2020

Auto Bild: All-Season Tire Test R16

The thirty-two sets of all-season tires, which the German magazine experts anonymously bought retail, were first subjected to an elimination test of emergency braking from 100 km/h on dry and wet pavement. The main test involved only those models, whose combined braking distance was less than 95 meters. As for the tires, whose combined braking distance is over 100 meters, the Auto Bild strongly recommends avoiding using them for your own safety.
