Linglong Green-Max HP tire rated for high wet trip by Test World

Linglong Tire’s Green-Max HP 010 (205/55 R16 91V) model received points for high wet grip in recent tests conducted as part of the 2017 Test World Tire Test Report, which assessed 17 different branded summer tires.

Linglong Tire scored a total of 8.3 points in the test, ranking number one among the five Chinese brands involved in the tests, which were conducted in France.

The Test World report said, “The Linglong Tire has shown surprisingly good results in this test. Its performance on wet surfaces is better than that on dry surfaces. It has particularly high grip on wet surfaces, especially in cold conditions, and can make driving easier and safer. Its noise is low and its rolling resistance is average.”

Performance on wet surfaces accounts for more than 55% in summer tire testing. With regard to this index, the braking distance of the Linglong tire on wet surfaces was just 1.5m more than Michelin, which came in first place, and was shorter than that of Goodyear, Pirelli and Maxxis. With regard to maneuverability on wet surfaces, the tire performed better than some of the world’s top brands, including Bridgestone and Yokohama.
