Tyre Reviews: Summer Tire Test R17

The new models from Goodyear and Michelin finally came up against each other in one test.

The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 and Michelin Pilot Sport 5 — two of the main newcomers of the summer season 2022 — already participated independently in a few tests, each scoring their own wins, but so far they have not been confronted with each other within one test, and the Tyre Reviews portal decided to finally find out, which of the two will make a better impression on dry and wet pavement. In addition to the new Goodyear and Michelin models, the test also involved seven models from various price brackets, including the budget Rotalla tire produced by the Chinese company Shandong Yongsheng Rubber Group.
