Auto Bild 2023: Summer Tire Test R18 2023
For next big tire test 2023, the Auto Bild experts chose the tire size 225/45 R18, suitable for many compact cars such as Renault Megane, Volkswagen Golf, Toyota Corolla, and others. To qualify for the main part of the test, the participants first had to demonstrate effective dry and wet braking performance.
20 tires reached the final, and the Auto Bild experts noted that, although there was a correlation between the tire’s performance and its cost in the qualification round, there were a few exceptions, and, for example, the cheap Linglong tire was able to make it to the main part of the test, while the more expensive Vredestein and Firestone tires could not. It is also worth noting that two new products of the season, the Bridgestone Turanza 6 and Continental PremiumContact 7, met in the final round.
