The German magazine Auto Bild has published in their current issue September/2020 the Super All Season Tire Test 2020.
The tested tire size was 205/55 R16 91/94 V, test vehicle was a VW Golf 7/8.
This test is a special test with 32 participating products. The evaluation consists of 2 parts:
Part 1: Wet braking and dry braking test: selection of the best 14 products (finalists)
Part 2: Complete test only of the finalists including wear performance and price.
For the first time Auto Bild is publishing the weight loss of the tire in g/1000 km for all finalists. This criteria is not part of the evaluation.
The test was conducted by Auto Bild on following proving grounds:
IFV Institute for road wear test (Harz, Germany)
Contidrom, Jeversen, Germany (dry and wet tests)
Test World Ivalo/ Finland (winter tests)

Secure grip in wet conditions is crucial for safe driving. Performance is graded into classes, A to G (although D and G are not currently used). The stopping distance between a class A tire and a class F tire can be as much as 18 metres.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with each subsequent class through to G increasing fuel consumption by between 0.42 and 0.56 mpg for a car which does 36 mpg.
This is the external noise made by the tire and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tires.
