225-45R17 Summer Tyre-Used in ADAC (Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club) tyre tests

225-45R17 Summer Tyre

These tyre tests are considered to be one of the most accurate and dependable tyre tests in the world. The ADAC is the German version of our RAC or AA. The testing is carried out and the results are compiled into data, rather than just a scoring method.

Continental racing tyres are one of the reasons why their tyres are number one in road testing.

It was no surprise to me that the Continental Sport Contact 5 tyre, once again came out the top tyre in a combination of all the testing data. Continental have also picked up more points in the tread wear part of the testing, and will be very difficult to beat in future tests.

New versions of tyres made by Michelin, Dunlop and Goodyear were not in the tests this year, but I still feel confident that Continental, with their 225-45R17 Summer Tyre, will be the top tyre for a few years to come.

This excites me because here at Pellon Tyres in Halifax UK, we are Continental stockists are also great fans of General tyres, one of the Continental owned brands that use the same quality ingredients to make both types of tyres. The fact that they are made by Continental gives us great confidence when we offer the very popular tyre size of the 225-45R17 Summer Tyre, to our customers, we know that they are the from the same factories and made from the same tyre materials and compounds.

Another brand that we offer in Halifax is the Apollo tyre brand of Vredestein tyres. Apollo-Vredestein came fourth behind third-place Pirelli tyres.

Michelin came in ninth place overall. There is no doubt at all that Michelin were very disappointed with the result.
