Maxxis Victra Sport 5 Impresses Again in AMS 2020 Tyre Test

08 June 2020

German motoring publication Auto Motor und Sport, conducted a tyre test of 11 premium and mid-range 225/45 R18 summer tyres to determine how they compared to each other. The Maxxis Victra Sport 5 rivalled its premium competitors in most areas and was the most affordable set of tyres in the top half of the leaderboard.

The AMS tyre test was conducted with a 3-Series BMW across a range of test areas from wet and dry braking, handling and subjective driver feedback to aquaplaning, comfort, noise and rolling resistance, finally taking the price into consideration too. 

These tests results show a higher dry average handling speed than the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5; higher subjective driver scores in handling and comfort than the other mid-range tyres in the test, faster average wet handling speeds than the Continental PremiumContact 6, Pirelli P Zero PZ4 and Bridgestone Turanza T005, all for 15% less than its nearest premium rival, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5, and a whopping 43% less than the most expensive tyre on the test. 

This makes for an affordable ultra-high-performance tyre perfect for sports cars, hot hatches or even daily drivers, for fractions of the cost of its rivals.
