Event Tyres, the surprise of the test!

Tyre magazines often publish tyre tests in which they compare premium brand tyres, occasionally adding one budget tyre to see how it differs from the premium brands. Alternatively, in the Quattroruote test that appeared in the November issue of the Italian magazine, 4 budget tyres were tested and compared to one premium tyre, to see if a lower price also really means lower level of quality.


For this reason Quattroruote purchased 4 budget tyres online, namely the Event Futurum Hp, the Goodride RP28, the Radar RP X20 and the Star Performer UHP 1, as well as the premium Pirelli Cinturato P, all in the size 205/55R16. After fitting the tyres on a BMW 118d, the tyres were tested on the track on dry breaking, wet breaking and wet handling.


The magazine writes that in dry conditions there were already some differences, but in the wet the differences became more obvious: between the Pirelli and the Goodride breaking from 100 km per hour showed a difference of 10 meters.


While looking at the results, in which the Pirelli serves as a reference, the Event tyre is clearly the best of the tested budget tyres, with impressive margins. In the dry breaking the Pirelli breaks 2,1 meters in front of the number two, Event Futurum HP (36.9 meters). Followed by the Star Performer, with 37,6 meters, the Radar with 38 and the Goodride with 38.9 meters.


In the wet Pirelli uses a breaking distance of 49.6 meters, while the Event needs 51.2 meters. The 1,6 meter is not a slight difference, but both certainly break free from the other test products: 56.7 meters for the Star Performer, 57.9 meters for the Radar, 59.6 meters for the Goodride. This is also the situation in case of the wet handling test. The difference between the first two and the other three is embarrassing. 1'50''8 for Pirelli, 1'51''7 for the Event, while the third classified 1'59''9
