The Fulda SportControl 2 secured the 7th position out of 16 competitors, achieving a final rating of 'Satisfactory.' This tire was praised for its dependable driving characteristics on dry roads, its lightweight nature, and its low fuel consumption. However, it faced criticism for slight weaknesses in dry road comfort and wet conditions performance, alongside an adequate projected tread life. While it demonstrated good aquaplaning resistance and braking distances on dry surfaces were notably commendable, its performance on wet surfaces narrowly missed achieving a higher accolade due to deficiencies in wet braking and handling. The Fulda SportControl 2 offered an adequate level of grip but struggled to optimally combine longitudinal and lateral forces under wet conditions. Its environmental footprint, although closely missing a higher mark, was recognized for efficiency benefiting from the tire's reduced weight and lower fuel consumption; however, its wear resistance and projected longevity were only deemed satisfactory.

Securing the 10th position out of 21 contenders, the Fulda SportControl 2 impressed with a final rating of 'Good', showcasing its strengths and weaknesses in a balanced manner. It was applauded for its excellent hydroplaning resistance and short braking distances on both wet and dry surfaces, accrediting its reliable performance to a commendable value for the price. However, the tyre did not escape criticism, notably for its significantly delayed steering response and only moderate tread life, factors that potential buyers might weigh against its strengths. Despite these critiques, its overall performance ensured it a solid standing among competitors, highlighting its worth for those prioritizing safety and efficiency.
