while driving a
(225/45 R17 W) on
a combination of roads
Coming from Bridgestone Potenza RE050, the conti tyres have been a major improvement. Good traction on dry road, good feedback and progressive at the car's limit, with as it seems after 10000Km, no significant wear.
The performance on the wet appears not to be great. By saying that, the tyres are being used in Greece were road traction can be a joke-minimal. However, it has happened to lose briefly the front of the car after passing through a wet strip on the road. In wet tarmac with 4th gear the cars rear slides if generous with the throttle. I would have expected better, but as I said the roads play a key role as well.
Also the car feels quite stiff/harsh when driving through uneven roads.
Overall it is a decent tyre in my opinion, but I would like to try something else as well.
