ADAC tyre test: Why Pirelli’s results were missing

This year’s ADAC test of 15-inch tyres for small and compact cars included the comment that a Pirelli tyre took part in the test, but was not included in the final results table as the testers noticed “marked variations” in performance for a number of test criteria.


This caused a few raised eyebrows, given its publication on the very day that allegations of tyre test rigging by Nokian Tyres surfaced, so contacted the ADAC to find out more.
