Competitors

The Fulda SportControl 2 summer tyre was tested by Autobild in three different tyre dimensions. Across the tests, the tyre was praised for its strong reserves against aquaplaning and short braking distances both on wet and dry roads. It was also noted for its good price-performance ratio, low rolling resistance, and comfortable ride. However, testers reported a delayed steering response and moderate tread life. The tyre was found to have secure handling in wet conditions, but longer braking distances and poorer lateral grip on dry roads. Despite its flaws, the Fulda SportControl 2 was deemed an overall balanced option with a budget-friendly price tag.
