A number of tests, held across Europe, have praised Continental tyres, awarding the company’s tyres the highest scores in a number of categories. The German motoring magazine, AutoBild, tested the ContiWinterContact TS 800, TS 810 and TS 830 tyres against sixty of their competitors. The testers concluded that the TS 830 was very well balanced, and gave it top marks on wet roads, on ice and on snow.
The TS810 was praised for its good traction, short braking distances on snow and its excellent handling properties on both wet and dry roads. The tyre was awarded the top rating of “exemplary”.
The ContiWinterContact TS 800 also came out top in the tests run by Europe’s biggest motoring club. The Stiftung Warentest showed it to be the top performer on wet roads, and awarded it the highest ratings on snow and ice.
All of the tests also paid tribute to the Continental tyres’ performance with regard to safety, especially under wet conditions.
