The current summer tire test results at a glance.

The “O-to-O” rule of thumb serves as a motto for drivers when changing tires: Winter tires should be installed on the vehicle from October to Easter, and summer tires from Easter to October.

This also means that vehicle owners will soon have to change their tires again.

If you want to buy new summer tires at the same time, you can use current tests to find out which ones are considered safe.

Summer tires in the ADAC test 2024: Three models performed “good”.

A summer tire test from 2024 by the ADAC also refers to the tire size 215/55 R17.

It is primarily found on lower mid-range SUVs, but also fits mid-range vehicles.

It turns out: Continental and Michelin are once again ahead with their products and achieve a test grade of “good”.

The “Kumho Ecsta HS52” model was also able to secure the same grade.

There were no real failures in this test: another 12 out of a total of 16 tires tested all received a grade of “satisfactory”, only the “Vredestein Ultrac” model only managed a “satisfactory” rating.
