Test 1 - Street Drive
Today I tested the following tires on a warm and sunny day here in Indiana:
I personally found the Sumitomo and Yokohama to be the best overall tires for handling and ride quality. The Michelin and Firestone were not as smooth or quiet and the handling was not as good. I didn't find any of them to be exceptionally noisy though. This is just the first part of our test. During part two we'll tes their handling and braking limits on our track.
Official results will be online soon but here is a more information on our testing program.
