Our famous annual assessment is the industry leading tyre test, helping you to buy the best rubber for all conditions.

This year we put 16 of the best-sellers through their paces. Even the industry’s specialist engineers can’t tell how well a tyre performs just by looking at the tread, no matter how dramatic the water-shifting pattern. And as we have proved before in our product tests, a top name does not guarantee top performance.

A top name on the sidewall does not guarantee top performance. Nor is price or reputation a determining factor when it comes to tracking down the best tyre.
Nor is price or reputation a determining factor. That’s why Auto Express leads the way among UK magazines in giving you all the information to pick the right rubber for you, your car and your budget. Each year we test at least one popular size to let you make an informed decision when buying.

This year is no exception, as we have gone for one of the biggest-selling 16-inch tyres in the UK – 215/55R16 – with either V- or W-speed rating (up to 150 and 168mph).

We put 16 big brands to the test at Bridgestone’s proving ground just south of Rome in Italy. A number of different assessments were carried out in the wet and dry, and our scoring system was simple. In each category the winner was ranked at 100 per cent, with the others rated relative to this depending on performance.

All tyres were supplied by the makers, but to ensure what we were sent are the same as you can buy, we bought four sets at random, and tested them back-to-back on the wet braking strip, which reveals major differences in construction or compound. So which is the one for your car?
