With Delticom to Saturn: More than 1.6 billion test kilometers driven
Tire testers from 10 countries "land on Saturn"
The independent international platform Reifentest.com operated by Delticom, Europe's leading online tire dealer, has taken off into space in the International Year of Astronomy (2009). The 1.6 billion test kilometers driven since 2000 are more than the distance to the sixth planet Saturn, second largest in our solar system after Jupiter.
On that planet, expensive is out and saving is in - just like on Earth at ReifenDirekt, Delticom's online shops in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Before earthlings buy new tires here, they like to check out the international test site of the online tire specialist and at Reifentest.com they get independent, free information on tires. The distance of more than 1.6 billion (test) kilometers doesn't seem like much if we compare it with the speed of light. At that speed we would need only 70 minutes to land on Saturn. But we shouldn't forget that this is the equivalent of 37,000 times around the earth. If all this has made your head spin, keep your feet on the ground and take a look in the Internet.
The popular test platform has reports and opinions from drivers who tested the tires in routine situations. Seven test categories, among them summer, winter, and all-weather tires for passenger cars are available for the testers as well as those seeking information. The current five test winners in the most important categories of winter and summer tires can be seen at a glance.
More than 100,000 drivers from 10 countries provided their test results and contributed to the more than 1.6 billion test kilometers.
Usual criteria for evaluating tires are gripping and braking properties on dry and wet roads as well as comfort and wear.
Used sensibly, the search for the correct tire is child's play, an easy step for tire buyers ... And the fact that tires do not have astronomical prices at the leading Internet expert, but are especially reasonable - 20 to 25% cheaper according to customers - makes buying a good deal for the customer - his own personal landing on Saturn, so to speak.
