Test and evaluation procedure
This method was developed by the Automobile Club of Europe( ACE) in cooperation with the German Technical Supervision Organization( GTU).
Location: Pirelli training ground in Italy. Braking on dry and wet asphalt from 80 to 20 km / h with determination of the brake distance. Test hydroplaning on the track with 7-mm.layer of water. The wet grip value is estimated by the average speed of a circle with a diameter of 80 m. The noise level is evaluated in accordance with the ECE R117 standard. The cost of the tires was also evaluated by the price / quality ratio.
1 - longitudinal. 2 - transverse .

The reinforced construction of the tire guarantees the stability of the contact spot for any maneuvers. The rubber mixture is characterized by a high content of silicon dioxide.
8. Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 K117
The wide longitudinal grooves on the tread ensure unimpeded movement over the wet surface. Step grooves on the tires serve as indicators of wear, and also help self-cleaning the tread.
7. Barum Bravuris 3 HM

4. Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2
The latest developments of Goodyear technologists have allowed to reduce noise level, improve grip and reduce fuel consumption, becauseThe lightweight construction of the tire helps to reduce the energy consumption for overcoming rolling resistance.
3. Pirelli PZero
Originally these ultra-low profile were developed for sports cars and only later went into mass production. The rubber compound from which the protector is made is characterized by a high content of synthetic polymers and silicon dioxide, which provides a reliable grip.
2. Dunlop Sport Maxx RT
The test of summer rubber carried out by professionals allowed selecting the most reliable models of famous brands. Sport Maxx RT is a novelty that combines the best practices of the company's technologists. The adaptive rubber compound provides grip, and the massive outer blocks of the tire shoulder increase the handling and stability of the car.
