Seems to be based purely on handling - nothing on wear rates.

Good to see my choice of Cinturato P7 is still in the top few.

I think I also highlighted the EfficientGrip and Sportrac before as pretty good allrounders too.

Yeah, I think the ContiPremium5's would be lower down if they did!!

They've been excellent tyres on my Yaris; Cheap for a premium tyre (IIRC it was something like £50 per wheel!), quiet, good grip in the dry and fantastic in the wet even in the horrible standing water that you get in ruttier parts of the motorway; Can plough through them at 60-odd mph and still wiggle the car with no hint of aquaplaning.

However, they do seem to be wearing down faster than then Conti3's I had on my previous Yaris. Didn't seem to bad at the beginning but I'm now wondering if they'll last half as long as the CPC3's! I suppose that's the tradeoff tho'; Difficult to get good grip AND wear rate!

Still, would probably buy again or change back to the CPC3's; The other tyres on test were £10-20 more from what I remember...!
