Hanover, March 8, 2019. In its latest issue (4/19) under the heading “Pitstop”, AutoBild Sportscars reports on the latest summer tire test. Of the eleven size 245/45 R 18 tires in the test, the PremiumContact 6 from Continental was awarded the best possible rating: “examplary”. “A balanced peak performer delivering impressive dynamic performance on wet and dry roads, steady and safe handling in the wet and dry, a precision steering response in the wet, and short wet and dry braking distances,” was how the journalists summed up their findings.
