Motor: All-Season Tire Test R16

After completing a series of comparison winter tire tests of the 2020 season, the Motor magazine experts focused on all-season tires. Which manufacturer was able to design the best-balanced tire for various weather conditions? In order to answer this question, the experts from the Polish motoring weekly purchased from independent tire dealers about a hundred all-season tires of different brands in size 205/55R16, which can be fitted on such popular passenger cars as Audi A3, Ford Focus, Opel Astra, Renault Megane, Skoda Octavia, and Volkswagen Golf, and tested their performance on snow, as well as on wet and dry pavements.
