How can any car enthusiast take such nonsense ratings in any way seriously.
Performance degredation over life of tyre?
Also. All the tyres have a db rating between 67 and 73 which is ridiculous. What speed was the test done at? Surely it should have been done at a higher speed so it makes more sense.
And how was it tested? Sensor in the tyre? Or in the car?
Is the environment for every single tyre test ever done exactly the same? The same RR with the same noise itself being made on the same car in the same building so similar ambient noise? I find it unlikely.
It's good to know that my Contisport 5Ps get an A rating in the rain, but I'm not sure the rating would lead me to drop down to some Kumho tyre and I don't understand at all how you can say premium tyres aren't worth it based on these ratings??? I guess you've never driven the car hard then....
