The Maxxis Premitra HP5 summer tyre has received praise for its excellent safety reserves when it comes to aquaplaning and short wet braking distances, coupled with a low price level. The key to success on wet roads is the tyre's efficient water dispersal profile paired with a grippy tread compound, allowing for quick and neutral handling through alternating curves and strong traction on corner exits.
On the flip side, the tyre's performance on dry roads has been found to be somewhat underwhelming, with noticeable understeer during handling and a significantly reduced mileage. The tyre's high rolling resistance and less than smooth response have also been mentioned as drawbacks. Despite these drawbacks, the Premitra HP5 still remains a recommended option due to its impressive performance on wet surfaces and its overall value for money.
It's worth noting that the same qualities have been perceived differently in various tests, demonstrating the importance of individual driving conditions and preferences when evaluating a tyre.
Maxxis Premitra HP5 is made in 56 sizes, starting from 195/50 R15 up to 255/45 R18.
