Conclusion:

Among the tires with speed index V (up to 240 km / h) has the dimension 205/55 R 16 with more than 40% for years the largest market share. Therefore, had presented 15 summer tires of this size in the ADAC test their skills.

Through their balance have five of the 15 tires ADAC judgment "good" deserves. The Continental ContiPremiumContact 5 especially shines in all safety-relevant properties. The Goodyear OptiGrip has no weaknesses, though with an extremely high wear resistance. The qualities of the Dunlop SP Sport Fast Response are particularly under dry conditions, it is suitable for high mileage. Also, the Bridgestone Turanza T001 offers a high degree of safety and also helps to save fuel. The Semperit Speed-Life presents itself as a good and balanced in all criteria.

The ten other test candidates are less balanced than those mentioned above and get good competitors because of weaknesses in at least one criterion, the ADAC judgment "satisfactory". In most cases relate to the weaknesses of the moisture behavior, it is rarely the wear behavior, which leads to the devaluation. The Kumho Ecsta HM (KH31), however, has shortcomings in both criteria. The Nexen N800 lacks the potential for rolling resistance and wear resistance.

ADAC advice:

Who pays special attention to

  • good moisture properties should choose the 2 or the Uniroyal Yokohama C.drive RainExpert.
  • low fuel consumption, should the Pirelli P7 Cinturato or the Hankook K425 Kinergy Eco Select.
  • good wear properties, should the Goodyear OpiGrip, the Formula C or the Pirelli P7 Cinturato choose.
  • wind noise, should the Pirelli P7 Cinturato or Yokohama C.drive select 2.
