Auto Zeitung Magazine rates Continental Tyre top
German Magazine Auto Zeitung (issue 09/09) has rated the ContiCrossContact UHP top in a recent off road tyre test against products from other European, American, Japanese and Korean tyre manufacturers.
Testing the 235/55R17 sized Tyre on a BMW X3 under real life conditions - in wet slopes, dry road conditions, and on sand and gravel- the tests emphasised safety related handling performance. In one test braking distances were checked on a special designed road surface simulating conditions on worn road surfaces.
Continental says that the tyre "held its ground against five competing models and headed up the overall ranking with a clear seven-point margin," and won points for its "balanced" characteristics.
