The ESA+Tecar Spirit Pro has been tested by the ADAC and was found to have strengths and weaknesses in different areas. The tyre performed well in wet conditions, with short braking distances and good handling, earning it positive reviews. It also had a good environmental score due to a projected long lifespan and low wear. However, when tested on dry roads, the Spirit Pro scored lower due to a lack of steering precision and delayed response from the rear axle, resulting in a harder time maintaining control during cornering and requiring more corrections. The tyre also struggled with oversteer during sudden maneuvers. The Spirit Pro did have a good score on braking ability, but the overall lack of balance on dry roads caused it to receive a less-than-satisfactory rating. Its wear score, on the other hand, was high. Overall, the ESA+Tecar Spirit Pro was noted to have its positive and negative qualities and was tested with tyre dimensions of 225/50 R17 and 205/55 R16.
