WhatTyre Awards 2021: UHP tyre nominations

When it comes to tyres the term ultra-high-performance has lost some of its cachet, but in doing so has grown in significance. No longer synonymous with the supercar posters found in many a teenaged bedroom in the 70s and 80s, chances are good that UHP tyres are available for the car you drive. Evidence of the UHP tyre segment’s evolution into the volume market can be seen in our long-list, which includes products ranging from strictly performance-oriented tyres to those with a greater emphasis on comfort and economy. Today’s super and hypercars run on UUHP (no prizes for guessing what the second ‘U’ stands for) rubber, and these products are also included in this category.

WhatTyre Awards 2021: Winter Tyre Nominations

Winter tyres may be a small part of the UK market, but there is still an incredible array of quality products to choose from. We suggest that every tyre mentioned on our longlist is worth considering, especially since prices (which you can find on WhatTyre) can vary hugely even within this list of the top products. For the purposes of our ranking, we focus only on the tyres’ performance qualities. We will announce our top five recommended products and the winner of the WhatTyre Winter Tyre of the Year 2021 in around a week’s time, alongside our other five Tyre of the Year categories and the overall winner.

The inaugural WhatTyre awards search the market for the best-performing, safest and most efficient tyres to fit in spring and summer 2021.

WhatTyre Awards 2021: SUV tyre nominations

This March we are introducing the inaugural WhatTyre Tyre of the Year Awards – an authoritative ranking of the best tyres out there. This starts with publishing our nominations of the highest-performing tyres across six key categories, namely: summer, winter, all-season, UHP, SUV and electric vehicle-orientated tyres. The length of each list differs in each category because of the range of tyre manufacturers and products in each segment, but every list has been scrutinised just as closely. The long-lists will be followed by our recommended short-lists as well as, of course, category winners. The coverage begins here with our nominations of which tyres to consider when it is time to change the treads on your Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV).
