The IceMaster Spike Z-506 from ZC Rubber was assessed for its ice performance in October 2022 by the Finnish organization Test World, which also put similar budget and premium winter tires to the test. The test vehicle was a VW Golf, and the tested tire size was 205/55R16.
The test findings show that the ice braking and acceleration performance of the Z-506 is noticeably superior to that of the comparable budget brand tire.
The IceMaster Spike Z-506 is a touring winter studded tire that offers outstanding traction and handling on snowy and icy roads thanks to its V-shaped directional tread pattern. Its strong shoulder blocks provides exceptional cornering stability and improved grip.
