Gute Fahrt: Compact SUV Summer Tire Test R18 2020
In its March issue (№ 3/2020), the German publication Gute Fahrt announced the results of its comparative tire test that was performed for 215/50 R18 tires designed to be fitted on compact SUVs, such as VW T-Roc, Audi Q2, Seat Ateca, and Skoda Karoq.
What made this test different was the fact that it involved original equipment tires as the reference, which were Bridgestone Turanza T001. These were fitted on an extra VW T-Roc that was going through all of the test disciplines simultaneously with the contestants.
But then again, this is not the first time Gute Fahrt is doing it: in the 225/40 R18 summer tire test 2019, the contestants were tested against the Bridgestone Turanza T005, which, according to some experts, ensures a reliable and well-balanced performance in all areas.
The test was performed in the fall of 2019 at the Pirelli tires test facility in Vizzola, Italy, at a constant temperature +18°C during the day.
