Wear: Consistent results

Wear is a particularly important criterion. Beyond the purely financial aspect, it evaluates the tendency of a tyre to maintain its level of performance.

Wear measurement

After the track performance test, tyre comparisons continued by measuring tread wear - Copyright © : rezulteo

After our tests, where each tyre covered the same mileage and was driven in the same conditions, it only remained to measure tyre wear. Again, a very important parameter given that buying tyres represents a substantial budget for sports car enthusiasts, especially if they indulge in track driving from time to time. It goes without saying that good performances are only of value if sustained over time. 

After each test, the tread depth was measured at four points and each tyre was weighed. Again, results are impressive but are finally in line with the behaviour of tyres on the circuit. With the best lap time, the Yokohama also shows the least wear. After being driven, it only lost an average of 277 grams for the four tyres: It is both the fastest and most durable tyre. Conversely, the Nexen leaves almost 600 grams of rubber on the track, slightly less than Toyo and Continental. The uniformity of tread wear also varies a great deal from one tyre to another. On the Vredestein, the inner tread is reduced by 2% but on the Toyo, the figure reaches a staggering 22%.
