How We Reviewed The ADVAN Sport V105 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 123 sizes of the ADVAN Sport V105 tyres by the European Union.

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

Fuel Efficiency

EU GradeCompared to an A grade tyre?
Fuel Efficiency
(A - E)
D0.3L/100km extra fuel consumption. ~$70 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 ADVAN Sport V105 tyres rank a D 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 0.3L/100km. This works out to $70 extra spent on petrol per year, based on a typical 12,000 km driven per year.

Comparison

Here's how the ADVAN Sport V105 compares to similar tyres for fuel efficiency (1 = Grade E, 5 = Grade A).

Based on the comparison tyres we've selected, the ADVAN Sport V105 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 ADVAN Sport V105 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.

Comparison

Here's how the ADVAN Sport V105 compares to similar tyres for wet grip (1 = Grade E, 5 = Grade A).

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

Noise

EU GradeCompared to an A grade tyre?
Noise
(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 ADVAN Sport V105 tyres produce 72.5 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).

Comparison

Here's how the ADVAN Sport V105 compares to similar tyres for noise (1 = Grade C, 3 = Grade A).

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