WIN­NER Maxxis Premi­tra HP5

Wheels (Australia) - - 2017 Wheels Tyre Test -

With the taps on, 1.6 me­tres sep­a­rated the Maxxis’ av­er­age brak­ing dis­tance from that of the sec­ond­placed Con­ti­nen­tal. At 23.2m, the Maxxis also stopped 2.5m shorter than the av­er­age tyre, and 4.6m shorter than the wooden-spooner. It also stopped bet­ter in the wet than the dry, and it wasn’t the only tyre to dis­play this un­ex­plained phe­nom­e­non. In fact, ev­ery tyre bar the Dun­lop per­formed bet­ter in the wet than the dry, with the Con­ti­nen­tal claim­ing sec­ond place and the Kumho ris­ing to score its sole podium. As for the win­ner, the Maxxis is a sure stop­per, whether the road is wet or dry.
