ADAC: Test of 215/55 R17 Summer Tires for Compact Crossovers (2024)

The ADAC summer tire test series for 2024 kicks off with an examination of 16 current tire models in the 215/55R17 size, suitable for small crossovers and mid-size passenger cars.

In its inaugural 2024 test, ADAC scrutinized the characteristics of these tire models, which play an important role for drivers of small crossovers and mid-range cars. Unlike tires designed for high-performance or specialized vehicles, these models aim to offer a balanced mix of efficiency, comfort, and safety, without a focus on extreme performance metrics. The tests were conducted across various locations in Europe, assessing dry asphalt performance at Bridgestone's Italian test track and ADAC's own facility in Bavaria. Wet grip and noise levels were evaluated at Continental's proving ground in Germany. Additionally, tire wear resistance was tested on public roads near Landsberg am Lech, Germany, and on a certified Bridgestone rig.

All tire models were tested in terms of driving and safety features as well as for comfort and economic efficiency. Additionally, sustainability criteria are included in the standard evaluation of the tire test. Therefore, starting with the summer tire test of 2023, ADAC has adopted a new evaluation scheme for its tire tests: The final grade now consists of individual scores for driving safety and environmental impact.

The roster for this test included:

The key test metrics on wet surfaces encompassed a variety of assessments. Braking tests measured the stopping distances with ABS from a speed of 80 km/h on both asphalt and concrete surfaces. For longitudinal and lateral hydroplaning, the tests determined the speed at which tires begin to hydroplane and measured the lateral acceleration force before hydroplaning in water layers of 7 mm and 5 mm, respectively. Handling was evaluated by the fastest possible navigation of a winding course by two test pilots. Lastly, lateral stability was tested through the maximum speed maneuvering on a wet, circular track.
