Continental Tyres enjoy Which? recognition

25th April 2012

Continental tyres product manager Jonathan Hayter is toasting the success of two of the firm's compounds, after they were recognised with Which? Best Buy Awards.

The accolade represents a major achievement for the tyre manufacturer, with its ContiPremiumContact 5 and ContiEcoContact 5 compounds receiving the honours.

Which? gave its recommendation after testing 26 different Continental tyres in two sizes, with 12 different brands in the 165/70 R14T size and 12 more in 205/55 R16V tested.

The ContiPremiumContact 5 compound was awarded Best Buy status with a rating of 70 per cent for its 205/55 R16W size, which is traditionally fitted to models including the Ford Focus, VW Passat and BMW 1 Series.

Continental's ContiEcoContact 5 tyre in the 165/70 R14T size also received the award with a rating of 72 per cent. Usually fitted on a VW Polo or Citroen C3, the compound was praised for its quiet performance.

Mr Hayter described the awards as "another great endorsement for Continental".

"Both theContiPremiumContact 5 and ContiEcoContact 5 deliver outstanding performance and give motorists greater safety when it is most needed," he added.
