Conti take Evo's annual tyre prize  24/04/2015

February's edition of Evo magazine is one of the most eagerly anticipated of the year, as the magazine carry out their annual tyre test.

The performance car magazine is read by performance car enthusiasts all over the world, with many taking the advice found inside and using it to make purchasing decisions for their cars.

With a range of tests carried out on different brands of performance car tyres from all over the world, the magazine pits the biggest tyre brands against each other, where only one can come out on top.

This year the tests looked at wet and dry handling, braking and aquaplaning, as it looked to find the best tyre of them all. The winner, not surprisingly was the Continental ContiSportContact3 which has been on the receiving end of a whole host of different awards.

Evo commended the tyre, labelling it a tyre which brought its driver an impressive complete performance in this month's magazine.

The ContiSportContact 3 is fitted as standard on a huge number of cars from many different manufacturers, and it was the 225/40 R18 which stole the show in the tests.

In their magazine, Evo described the wet handling of the ContiSportContact 3 as Masterful before adding that there were, were some great performances on the wet circuit but the Conti still stood out, setting the fastest lap time, recording the highest lateral G, and scoring the highest subjective mark, too-it wasn't bettered.

Product manager at continental, Jonathan Hayter was really happy with the result, adding, This additional win for the ContiSportContact3 is an excellent endorsement for our product range. The ultra high performance tyre has proven its worth yet again next to competitor products and has displayed its prowess in a number of disciplines including wet handling and braking.
