The annual ADAC test results have been released following a 12-month tyre test, concluding that both the Maxxis Victra Sport 5 and the Premitra HP5 are both ‘highly recommended’ and have achieved second and third place respectively in their separate tests.

The tyre test was carried out by ADAC, German automobile club, plus other auto clubs and consumer protection organisations globally. The test, lasting 12 months, took wet and dry handling, braking, comfort and noise into account, with a fuel consumption assessment and a wear percentage awarded based on over 10,000km of use.

The Maxxis Victra Sport 5 was tested, featuring in the 225/40/ R18 92Y category, and was again one of just four tyres to receive the ‘highly recommended’ rating. The VS5 scored well across the board, with excellence in wear and comfort/noise, earning the Maxxis tyre a joint 2nd place final grade in this test.
