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.
