Competitors

The Fulda Kristall Control HP2 tires have been subject to a variety of tests by different automotive organizations, notably by AutoBild and Autozeitung. The results from these tests provide a comprehensive overview of the tire's performance across different conditions and surfaces.


A notable strength of the Fulda Kristall Control HP2 is its short braking distances on snow, which indicates its reliability in winter conditions. This quality is complemented by the tire's good economy and high mileage potential, suggesting that it offers value for money over its lifespan.


However, the tire's performance is not without its drawbacks. Across various weather conditions, it was observed to exhibit a pronounced understeering behavior. This tendency can compromise the vehicle's handling and precision on the road. Similarly, the tire's braking performance on wet and dry surfaces was found to be longer than desired. Such characteristics may impact driving safety and responsiveness in critical situations.


When it comes to wet conditions, the tires showed a relatively high tendency to aquaplane. This, combined with lengthy braking distances and insufficient lateral support, points towards limitations in its wet handling capability. The perception of strong understeering persists in these conditions, further emphasizing concerns about vehicular control.


On dry surfaces, the tires presented a slow and somewhat uncommunicative handling experience through the steering. Despite a stable rear axle and high rolling noise, the overall impression suggests that the tire could benefit from improvements in handling and noise reduction for a more pleasant and controlled driving experience.


In summary, the Fulda Kristall Control HP2 exhibits commendable qualities such as short snow braking distances and economic value through high mileage. Nonetheless, its understeering behavior, extended braking distances on wet and dry surfaces, and handling limitations highlight areas that could be enhanced for a more balanced performance. These insights offer potential buyers a clear understanding of what to expect from the tire's performance across different driving conditions.

Ranked #6 of 8
Finishing in the 6th position out of 8 competitors, the Fulda Kristall Control HP2 showed a mixed performance in winter conditions. On snow, its capabilities were notably strong; the tyre provided secure traction and excellent side support, demonstrating a great ability to mesh with snowy surfaces - it specially excelled in snow cornering. However, the tyre faced challenges in wet conditions, displaying a relatively high aquaplaning speed alongside long braking distances and weak lateral support, leading to pronounced understeering. In dry conditions, the handling was described as slow and somewhat uncommunicative through the steering, with a quiet rear but a high rolling noise level. Despite these variances in performance across different conditions, it showcased exceptional performance in aquaplaning resistance, particularly in cross aquaplaning scenarios, highlighting its strengths in specific critical areas.
