The tests were conducted in the Lower Laurentians in 2015 and 2016, with constant temperatures ranging between minus 10 and minus 12 Celsius. The exercises included tests of acceleration and braking on different surfaces (0 to 60 km/h ; 60 km/h to 0), record-route in bend (radius ascending and descending), and slalom. The recording of the data was measured by an onboard computer. In addition, noise testing has been made with a décibelmètre on highways of asphalt and concrete. Finally, driving impressions of the experts, Michel Poirier-Defoy, and Jean-François Guay, totaling over 40 years of experience in the field, have been taken into account.

The dimension chosen is the most popular on the market, which is 205/55R16. The test vehicles were two Honda Civic, the vehicle most sold in the country. The recommendations are suitable for passenger cars but also SUVS and sometimes vans.
