Continental tyres are ‘incredibly pleased’ to have been named the best tyre brand following a survey by Which? magazine.
The leading consumer publication picked out Continental’s excellent dry grip and very good wet grip as major plus points of the tyres it produces.
The magazine tested a total of 18 tyre brands on the UK market considering factors key to road users – grip and handling on dry roads and in the most extreme of wet conditions.
Which? said: “The Continental tyres we’ve tested cover eight sizes commonly used on popular superminis, medium cars, large cars and MPVs. All the Continental tyres we’ve tested offer balanced performance, have no major weaknesses and all make the Best Buy grade. In the dry, Continental tyres perform very well, and wet grip is balanced and safe in a straight line or in a bend.”
Tracey Hyem, brand manager for Continental, said: “To come out as the top tyre brand tested really shows the all round ability and quality of our products and we are incredibly pleased with the result.
“Which? magazine considers its ‘Best Buys’ very carefully putting the tyres through stringent tests so this really is an excellent result for Continental.”
Which? magazine tested the biggest selling car tyre products in the Continental range and all made the Best Buy grade.
