EVO tyre test 2007


Recommended Posts

Oops I've just bought four PS2s, but I have to say the grip is superb.

The car feels like I have uprated the Anti Roll Bars, the turn in is much sharper and the car feels lighter.

It's strange if they didn't do well, haven't seen the test, as they are very highly rated by other magazines but it is only their opinion, it would be interesting to see other tests.

How did the Continental tyres do? Sport contact 3s?

I will have to sort a subscription out for that magazine I buy it every month anyway. sportifs2.gif

Could we get this moved to General Cars as it is useful for everyone 169144-ok.gif

Sorry, I did think about posting it in general but I posted here because it was a direct test of these tyres on gti's. Tyres dont always translate the same to every car but this is kind of definitive for us gti owners 169144-ok.gif

Yep, even better 169144-ok.gif ...can threads be merged in a few weeks time ?

Went into Smiths yesterday and nearly bought EVO, I flicked through the pages and saw no tyre test confused.gif Then I saw a preview of next months mag and it was advertising the tyre test. It said next issue on sale from September 19th ! Do subscribers get their copies early or something ?
