AUTOBILD 2023 - 225/45 R18

Autobild tested the stopping distances of 54 winter tyres, with Bridgestone, Michelin, Goodyear and Kleber among the best

Autobild magazine's annual winter test has tested 54 tyre treads, both in the wet when braking from 80 km/h and in the snow when braking from 50 km/h. The result is a unique overview of models that we wouldn't normally see in tests. So let's have a look at the most complex tire test of 2023.

ADAC 2023 - 225/45 R17

ADAC published it’s winter tyre test for 2023, Continental won, Michelin was second

ADAC has published its annual winter tyre test, which has changed its methodology since last year and focuses much more on the environment and sustainability, which makes up 30% of the overall score now, which is a lot. Due to the different criteria, the results tend to be different compared to other tests and this year is no different in the 225/45 R17 size.
