check the prices for Semperit Speed-Grip 5


The Semperit Speed-Grip 5 tyre has garnered attention across multiple tests for its versatile and robust performance under various conditions. Among its lauded features, the tyre boasts a remarkably balanced performance, excelling on all types of surfaces which is an essential quality for drivers navigating through different terrains. The tyre is celebrated for its very low fuel consumption, achieving the highest marks in this criterion, and showing low wear over time, indicating its durability and cost-effectiveness in the long haul.

When it comes to specific conditions, the Semperit Speed-Grip 5 is praised for its short braking distances and precise handling on icy and snowy roads, a critical feature for winter tyres aiming to provide safety and control in hazardous weather. In addition, its excellent aquaplaning qualities ensure better water displacement, enhancing safety during heavy rainfalls. Its low rolling resistance is another highlighted feature, contributing to the tyre's fuel efficiency.

However, the tyre's performance isn't without its drawbacks. Some tests pointed out its moderate wet grip and extended braking distances on both wet and dry surfaces as areas where the tyre doesn't perform as well. Additionally, when navigating wet conditions, the tyre demonstrated less lateral support, suggesting a decrease in stability and control. These aspects indicate room for improvement, particularly concerning wet performance, to elevate the tyre's standing amongst its competitors.

Despite these concerns, the Semperit Speed-Grip 5's strengths in winter suitability, dry handling, and longevity — thanks to its very good mileage — have made it a commendable choice. Its performance in dry conditions is particularly noted, with fast handling and short braking distances setting it apart. While it shows limited grip in snow and under wet conditions, its superior performance in aquaplaning tests and one of the best rolling resistances mark it as a strong contender in the tyre market.

The collective findings from these tests render the Semperit Speed-Grip 5 highly recommended, particularly for drivers who prioritize balanced performance, efficiency, and durability but can acknowledge its limitations under wet conditions. Its array of positive qualities across various essential criteria cements its place as a worthy option for those seeking reliable winter tyres.


Semperit Speed-Grip 5 is made in 92 sizes, starting from 165/70 R14 up to 275/45 R21.
