Recently, test results of the 2017 Test World Tire Test Report of summer tyres, conducted by Finnish Test World, was published. The test was carried out in France by experts from professional Finnish Test World. Seventeen tyre brands and products across the world were involved. Linglong Tire won a total score of 8.3 points, ranking it No 1 among the five Chinese brands.
Founded in 1991, Test World Tire Test Report of Finnish Test World specialises in automotive and tyre testing and publishes summer and winter tyre test reports regularly every year. The organisation provides global tyre brands with professional European and other markets access standards testing service. Its key test fields are in Helsinki and Ivalo in Finland.
In this test, Linglong Tire’s Green-Max HP 010 (205/55R16 91V) received a total test score of 8.3 points out of 10, and Test World Tire Test Report gave it this assessment: Linglong Tire has a surprisingly good result in this test. Its performance on wet surfaces is better than that on dry surfaces. Linglong Tire has particularly excellent grip on wet surfaces, especially in a rather cold condition; it will make your driving easier and safer. Its noise is low and its rolling resistance is of the average level.
The performance on wet surfaces accounts for more than 55 per cent in summer tyre testing. In regard to this index, the braking distance of Linglong Tire on wet surfaces is just 1.5 metres behind Michelin, the top tyre in this test, and shorter than that of Goodyear, Pirelli and Maxxis. As to the manoeuvrability on wet surfaces, Linglong did a better job than some famous brands like Bridgestone and Yokohama, demonstrating that the gap between Chinese independent brands and overseas premium brands has continued to narrow.
