Summer tyre: Continental ContiPremiumContact 5
Many drivers will look at that scary snow performance when choosing whether to change tyres for the seasons or go for a more winter-orientated design.
Many drivers will look at that scary snow performance when choosing whether to change tyres for the seasons or go for a more winter-orientated design. For snow driving it’s a no-brainer.
Deciding between winter and all-season tyres is trickier, and key here is the dry braking result. Only the Michelin got close, and the nearest conventional all-season tyre needed more than two metres extra to stop. Our dry handling lap was compromised, but the feel was a big improvement over most all-season rubber. The ultimate solution remains changing tyres in the autumn and spring, but the gap is getting smaller.
