Summer tyres offer the best possible performance for the road. Tech editor Mike Hawkins takes us through seven of the best
We often end up pointing out that none of the products featured are duffers, and that?s never been truer than with this summer tyres test.
Even the Michelin, which scored seven, is a brilliant tyre; it?s just less versatile and best suited to certain conditions.
When it comes to all-round summer performance, we found the Ultremo to be the best here.
This tyre covered every base well, with no low points, and offered a great blend. Coming a close second was the Challenge Elite, which offers good value, but the odd puncture ? quite literally ? let it down.
Likewise, the Fortezza offers a good mix of attributes and throughout the test proved particularly strong at resisting debris.
