So, external the tread block is made for convincing control of a car in the dry the weather, while the inside prevails in case of rain and wet trails.

Official tests on the track showed that the braking distance Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV is about 1 meter shorter than that of previous generation bus – according to the developers, this is the result painstaking work and enumeration of the tread pattern “from scratch”. Most the main advantage of the model over the others was the active resistance to lateral rolling and axle drift during sharp maneuvering. Despite the high cost of the Pilot Sport 4 SUV will be the perfect choice for those who love total control and handling as well as high-speed amateur and pro level.

From here the inability arises inherent in all models of this class ground driving at the mercy of excellent performance traction and stability on the pavement.

The central part of the tread Toyo Proxes STIII is made in the form of cone-shaped and arrow-shaped checkers that are positive affect the course stabilization of the car, and also respond for a hook on a wet track. A series of lamellas cut using technology 3D Multiwave, as well as the tilt of the side blocks, contribute to reduction of uneven wear due to limitation of displacement and deformation of the tread during braking and rapid acceleration. All this contributes to fuel economy (4.1% compared to the previous iterations of Proxes), and an increase in the allowed speed limit, and noise reduction while driving (although this indicator received an average user rating of 3 out of 5).

Advantages

  • extremely stable behavior on the track;
  • cutting of lamellas and bevels of side blocks are oriented to minimization of deformations and uneven wear;
  • high degree of profitability;

Yokohama Parada Spec-X has a unique, very atypical figure – one concentric groove in the center and deep curves lamellas designed for instant removal of slurry and water from under zone of contact of the wheel with the road. Price, when compared with others representatives of the class, stands at a level slightly above average, but at painstakingly looking for a distributor can cost up to 1000 rubles per each wheel. Therefore, the only drawback of the model is in an extremely detrimental effect on fuel consumption during installation does not recommended height / width configuration (for spacers and etc.). Also, despite good stability road, accelerate more than 150 kilometers per hour, we would not recommended.

Advantages

  • extremely efficient lamella and groove configuration on a tread that provides reliable traction with asphalt expensive;

Despite Continental’s excellent grip ContiSportContact 5 SUV has higher resistance rolling, which somewhat eliminates the gain in consumption. However savings are still present, albeit at 1.4% relatively old company comparison patterns. Noteworthy is that the fact that Continental is seriously concerned about the problem of eliminating defects arising during the operation of rubber. To this end, with This tire model was manufactured using ContiSeal technology – a means of sealing the tread when cut or puncture. When breaking the wheel, the viscous base inside will create an elastic layer, preventing air from escaping at a certain speed (60 km / h). This is enough to get to the nearest point. maintenance and eliminate annoying malfunction.

Advantages

  • very high safety standards;

The famous predecessor was a very strong market player, however Could not stand out in any specific characteristics – success was due solely to a single set of parameters. And here Alenza 001, by contrast, can be compared individually indicators. So, the comfort of the model felt in practice the vast majority (about 85%) of users: the reason for this lies in four longitudinal grooves with small regular lamellas. The contact patch remains effective, and the excess moisture is regularly brought out.

According to the test results of Bridgestone Alenza 001 contributed to more economical fuel consumption than previous iteration of SUV rubber – about 2.9%.

Advantages

  • extremely resistant to wear;
  • reinforced lateral part, practically immune to penetration or off-road cuts;
  • high off-road conditions, but acceptable indicators use on the highway;
  • moderately soft rubber composition, eliminating the “solidification” of tires with exploitation in frost;

The second line of the rating goes to TIRE DYNAPRO MT RT03 tires from Hankook. Its main feature is versatility, albeit to the detriment patency on total off-road. However, to this there is also a predisposition, and when etched, it is capable of crawl where access is less than “prepared” competitors.

Noise when driving on asphalt, as such, is not observed – if everything is fine with the insulation component in the cabin, then nothing annoying you will not hear. Due to the high enough checkers and deep tread the car is not subjected to aquaplaning: comfort and handling when driving on a wet track provided. Knead dirt at the drain pressure (1.4-1.8 atmospheres) good, but much better when etched to 0.9 atmospheres With an operating mode of 50/50 (asphalt / off-road) and timely replacement closer to the winter season Hankook TIRE DYNAPRO MT RT03 covers approximately 70-80 thousand kilometers.

A set of fairly cheap mud rubber, which often comes with successfully applied on off-road vehicles in the domestic circle motorists. It has perhaps the most pronounced balance of price and qualities: the whole comparison will be built with reference to the “national” Forward Safari. So, from the key advantages we can distinguish soft rubber composition: even at -30 degrees Celsius is not lost elasticity, which allows to do without cracking and kinks for a whole year. They are less noisy, which makes them use more comfortable even in urban driving conditions tracks.

In addition, the COMFORSER CF3000 does a great job of off-road, and if necessary, more confident hitch etched in 0.7 atmospheres without any negative consequences. Of poor wear resistance: the same Safari is felt to have a higher margin of safety in long term. There are also complaints about keeping the car on straight and on high gauge exit.

Forward Safari 540

We’ll give the fourth line of the rating to the “popular” Safari 540 tires, which is a cheap alternative to the very good BFG Mud kit Terrain KM1. But its advantages include not only the parameter prices: the presence of lateral reinforcement with a deep tread for digging in the mud are also worthy of mention. She holds the road well, not subjected to lateral drift, but at the same time quite noisy when driving on asphalt.

In fact, noise problems are limited by the stiffness of the rubber, from which the parameters of “durability” during the late shift “suffer” kit for the winter. Already at -20 degrees Celsius on the steering wheel begins loss of control is felt as the rubber rises and after several such races begins to “creep”. But the tread retains depth for a long time, which can also be attributed to the pluses. Thus, for every significant drawback there is a significant dignity, and the national factor preferences speaks clearly in favor of Safarey.

Velcro is very soft, quiet and economical due to lightness – factory calculation and sensibility affect Japanese engineers. In addition, the magnificent balancing – at the Blizzak DM-V2 level.

But, no matter how powerful the advantages, without disadvantages, too not done. The fact is that, like all Velcro, Yokohama Geolandar I / T-S G073 rolls pretty well on ice, but with braking distance the real trouble is happening.

Area of ​​contact with ice increased, corresponding reliability indicators, because of which both braking and rental for the ice surface turned out to be much more manageable. Somehow inexplicably they managed to drive into the range of acceptable values and noise, creating ideal comfortable driving conditions.

But the engineers at MICHELIN went further, reworking the already good rubber. The introduction of a portion of new elastomers presented X-Ice North 4 more softness and caused a pronounced manifestation of elastic deformations to minimize uneven wear of rubber by outbursts and friction.

As the experts explained, the minimum gap (two tenths of a point from X-Ice North) is associated with more effective indicators of braking and handling on ice. But noise was predictably a minus – with this component Finns did not reach the optimum. Indeed, the number of spikes per the tire is significantly larger than the designated competitor.

In essence, apart from the high noise level in Nokian Tires Hakkapeliitta 9 SUV nothing to highlight with a minus sign – according to users, and lateral stability, and patency great. The standard “Christmas tree” in the central part is active removes snow and porridge from the contact area of ​​the tire with the road, and the side surfaces serve as support. Finnish tires worth expected expensive, but subscribing to every word of experts, put it taller GOODYEAR Ultra Grip Ice Arctic SUV.

GOODYEAR Ultra Grip IceArctic SUV – a combination of deep tread without pronounced Separation into the central and lateral parts, with a unique formula the location of the spikes is from the periphery to the middle. It seems to be nothing Noteworthy, but this arrangement has one very important plus: low noise caused by stiffness, and mutual selection of the levels of the spikes relative to rubber.

Be prepared for the fact that during the break-in the behavior of the car will be not up to expectations – this is one of the oddities of Ultra Grip Ice Arctic.

Thanks to such a study, the tires were able to transfer optimal traction, and the gain is to keep the car in compared with others, tens of percent are calculated. Plots overcome by competitors in winter at a speed of 80-90 km / h, with this rubber passing at around 110 km / h … and this is far from limit.

According to the owners, the Continental IceContact 2 SUV is excellent holds spikes – after the first season the number of drops does not exceed 1-2 pieces from one wheel. Again, getting into balance affects softness / rigidity. Another thing is that they cost accordingly: the market price from the very moment of release does not fall below 10 thousand rubles. However, for the quality and reliability the price is quite acceptable.

Tire rating for SUV: 4.6

Hankook Tire ipike RW11

Studded tire Tire ipike RW11 takes the fifth line of the rating not by chance – the appropriateness of its use on ice and in snow porridge is questioned by many owners. But first about the good. In case all operation is limited to movement in deep snow, as well as riding on clean asphalt, then no you won’t feel any problems – a combination of thin slats and blocks with going out, as well as spikes, helps get the most out of hook.

But as soon as a snowy road gives way to ice or snow gruel, driving performance drops sharply, exposing the weakest places constructions. The lamellas here are made in such a way that they do not lend themselves to self-cleaning when intensively filled with snow-water mixture, due to bringing the entire braking load to the spikes. On the ice, sometimes, thorns do not help either – with careless action there is everything chances to go into a skid, and well, if it can be controlled. Therefore, if the winter in your area is harsh, snowy, and does not throw surprises in the form of temperature fluctuations to positive, then Hankook Tire The ipike RW11 is the perfect choice.

Advantages

  • good quality rubber;
  • does not harden and does not lose elasticity due to softness;

The best all-season tires for SUVs

Yokohama Geolandar A / T G015

SUV tire rating: 5.0

Yokohama Geolandar A / T G015

Very evil and cheap tires of the Geolandar series, providing excellent movement control in all phases – from rental to direct to turns and off-gauges. Last at A / T G015 really a very valuable skill, since winter in Russian cities rarely does without a large gauge on bypass roads. All this provided by a very pronounced sidewall reinforced yet better than with Toyo. True, about any slowness out of the question: not a single rubber owner shared negative experience cornering.

But the level of its noise was noted by many as incompatible with the concept of “comfort.” As well as softness: it seems, not the most poor quality, but in the long run it may lead to rapid wear and lack of kit for the winter. By the off-road Yokohama Geolandar A / T G015 is active and effective, but serious off-road is unlikely to overcome. So Thus, the cheapest rinks proved to be most healthy than earned the first line of the rating.

SUV tire rating: 4.9

Cooper Discoverer A / T3

The downside of Cooper Discoverer A / T3 tires, according to users, is a very large mass – everything else is restored parity in quality. Traditionally powerful model with good, reliable sidewalls intended for driving on light dirt off-road and asphalt – what else is needed for an all-weather season. Thanks coarse-cut lamellas, she has a tendency to self-cleaning, only occasionally throwing trouble in the form of stuck pebbles of gravel or crushed stone. By the softness of the course, the buyers also had no complaints, as she drags the car well, leveling the irregularities of the path.

Minor wobbles in Discoverer A / T3 rut are characteristic, but not say that they look and feel like an opportunity to stall in uncontrolled torsion or cause to throw into an adjacent lane. Deceleration is decent, and not only on dry asphalt, but also on ice, which not all Velcro is also bright. Generally, the rollers are really decent and accessibility problems they don’t experience – you can purchase in any specialized catalog or at the nearest car market, since in Russia the model is very running gear.

Toyo Open Country H / T

SUV tire rating: 4.8

Toyo Open Country H / T

Toyo’s all-season is a typical off-road tire which is not averse and climb on the road, for which he receives a third line of our rating. The main difference between Open Country H / T from competitors – wide grooves highlighting the central unit in the background total wheels, as well as those responsible for the proper withdrawal of water and snow porridge from the contact zone. You can also select almost flat side part serving as lateral support for good keeping a direct trajectory of movement. But in spite of everything positive nuances of such a step, on the road the impression that the engineers overdid it a bit. No car not wags from side to side, it does not rearrange on speed … it just feels like cornering at speed he comes reluctantly, turning up a little bit relative to the real driving directions.

Along with the strange behavior of Toyo Open Country H / T owners rubber notes its noise and softness – there is every chance that after several seasons, it will turn into exclusively summer, because asphalt will “eat” all the tread blocks. For the rest same – complete satisfaction of the choice, and even for an acceptable amount.

Advantages

  • excellent road holding due to the presence of lateral supports;
  • good dirt and deep snow drips;
  • low price;
  • acceptable appearance and quality.
