The methodology: ADAC ugives grade according to the weight of each of the criteria listed in parentheses. However, in order for the test to make sense, it's always the worst value that matters the most. If the tyre fails in some area, it's considered worse than being average in every area. This is because the total rating (excellent, good, satisfactory, ...) is based on the worst grade awarded. Therefore, if the tyre has at least one value higher than 1.5, you can no longer get the "excellent" rating if at least one value higher than 2.5 cannot get good rating and so on. This is because the weakest value has a major impact on overall security of the tyre.
