Triangle Tyre impresses in Hungarian Winter tire test

Over the last 5 years we, at Triangle Tyre Co, have been focusing on re-vitalising our product portfolio in line with our brand promise – TiresforLife. and delivering our positioning of Safe, Value.

We are pleased to receive some external validation for the hard work we have put it to deliver against our promise.

With the winter season arriving in Europe and this being the period where we change from Summer tires to winter tires, the team of nonstopgumi.hu and Groupama Tanpálya in Hungary conducted its 10th annual tire test using the most popular size (205/55R16) in Europe. The test is completely independent and tires were sourced from the market.

This year the test compared 13 sets, 8 winter tires, 3 four-season ones, a used (9 year old) winter set and a 5 year old summer set to determine the best choices for the coming season.

What was measured in the test?

“The test was conducted in domestic conditions, that is, exactly the conditions we drive at home (Hungary), that's why we call our test a reality test”., said the team at Autonavigator.hu. “The Groupama Course in Mogyoród gave us great conditions for our usual rubber test with the team of nonstopgumi.hu”  they went on to say.
