What we rated

Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

ALL tyres were the same size: 205/55R16. Speed rat­ings were H (up to 130mph) and V (up to 150mph) and weight rat­ings were 91 or 94. Be­low, we also list each of our tyres’ EU com­pul­sory tyre rat­ing for fuel econ­omy (FE), wet grip (WG) and pass-by noise (N). The first two are ranked from A down to G. Noise is mea­sured in deci­bels, so the lower the num­ber the bet­ter.
