If you read German, you can read the test. https://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/verkehr/winterreifen-test-2020-225-50-r17-mittelklasse/. In our opinion, Europeans know more about winters and winter tyres, so we trust this top. The tests were carried out in October 2020 on a BMW 3er.
Winner: Bridgestone Blizzak LM-005.
Best value: BFGoodrich G-FORCE WINTER 2.
With the shortest braking distances on wet and snow, Bridgestone’s Blizzak LM 005 scored the points needed to win the test. Vredestein Wintrac Pro, which is available for 120 dollars and is therefore a real value for money tip, is curve-fast on wet roads and has good braking power on dry roads. Last year’s Goodyear winner is ranked in the midfield in this year’s test. The tail light is the Falcon Eurowinter, which lacks driving stability and efficiency above all else – but it was still enough for a satisfactory result.
The test results are not only applicable to the r17(225/50) diameter. They will be very similar to other diameters (r15, r16, r18, r19) but with a similar tyre width of 225.
