How We Reviewed The Agilis 3 Tyres

Unlike the Australian government, the European Union carries out standardised tests on all tyres sold in Europe. These tests are carried out in identical conditions, making them a reliable way to compare tyres.

For this review, we use averaged results from tests done on 45 sizes of the Agilis 3 tyres by the European Union.

We then compare these to the same results for the following similar tyres, also rated for Commercial usage and sold in Australia.

Fuel Efficiency

EU GradeCompared to an A grade tyre?
Fuel Efficiency
(A - E)
B0.1L/100km extra fuel consumption. ~$24 extra per year

The US Department of Energy estimates that around 25% of the fuel consumption of a vehicle is attributable to the tyres. That's a lot, and it means that choosing fuel efficient tyres can save you quite a bit of money.

The Agilis 3 tyres rank a B on a scale of A to E in the official fuel efficiency tests carried out by the EU (they call these rolling resistance tests).

Relative to an A grade tyre, expect to use an extra 0.1L/100km. This works out to $24 extra spent on petrol per year, based on a typical 12,000 km driven per year.


Here's how the Agilis 3 compares to similar tyres for fuel efficiency (1 = Grade E, 5 = Grade A).

Based on the comparison tyres we've selected, the Agilis 3 ranked # out of 0 tyres.

Grip & Handling

EU GradeCompared to an A grade tyre?
Wet Grip
(A - E)
ANo difference

We'll now take a look at how these tyres compare in terms of grip and handling.

A good measure of this is 'wet grip', which is an indication of how well the tyres will allow the vehicle to come to a stop in wet conditions.

The Agilis 3 tyres rank a A on a scale of A to E in the official fuel tests carried out by the EU.

This is the highest possible rating, and indicates excellent grip and handling in wet conditions relative to other tyres.


Here's how the Agilis 3 compares to similar tyres for wet grip (1 = Grade E, 5 = Grade A).

For wet grip, they scored # out of 0 comparison tyres.


EU GradeCompared to an A grade tyre?
(A - C)
B (72 dB)2 times as noisy

Another key factor to consider when choosing a tyre is road noise. Once you're over about 40 km/h, the dominant source of noise you hear is from the contact of your tyres on the road.

There is a surprisingly wide variation in the amount of noise each tyre makes.

The Agilis 3 tyres produce 71.9 dB of road noise, which corresponds to a rank of B on a scale of A to C in the standardised testing done by the EU.

Expect these tyres to produce about 2 times as much noise as an A grade tyre (the decibel scale is logarithmic).


Here's how the Agilis 3 compares to similar tyres for noise (1 = Grade C, 3 = Grade A).

For noise, they ranked # out of 0 comparison tyres.


Based on the results of a number of tyre benchmarks, including those below, the Agilis 3 scores 5 out of 5 for comfort.


We don't have any UTQG treadwear data for this tyre, unfortunately.


The UTQG system measures traction as straight-line braking in dry conditions. The scale is AA, A, B, C, with AA being the best grade, and C the worst.

We don't have any UTQG traction data for this tyre, unfortunately.

Temperature Resistance

The UTQG temperature resistance tests measure how well tyres can dissipate heat that builds up due to friction with the road. The scale is A, B, C, with A being the highest grade.

We don't have any UTQG temperature data for this tyre, unfortunately.


The Agilis 3 tyres have a warranty of 6 years.

Comparisons With Similar Tyres

Still undecided as to whether to go with these commercial tyres? Check out our data-driven comparisons to similar tyres on the market in Australia!


The Agilis 3 tyres are a solid choice for anyone looking to replace their SUV or truck rubber with some tyres designed for commercial action.

For fuel efficiency, they score a grade of B, which is above average, though this isn't a super important factor.

More important is the wet grip, which gives you an indication of their traction and handling. In this regard, they get a score of A, which is outstanding.

Finally, for road noise, they receive a B grade, which is about typical.
