2023 Tire Reviews Best Summer Tires - 1st of 13 tires

  • Positive - Highest level of wet grip overall, clear lead in wet braking with joint fastest wet handling, shortest dry braking and best dry handling.
  • Negative - Average rolling resistance, average aquaplaning resistance, increased external noise.
  • Overall - Once again Continental have dropped a new tire to the market, and seriously moved the game on, most noticeably in the wet. Last year it was the SportContact 7, this year it's the PremiumContact 7.

    This tire had a huge lead in wet braking, was joint fastest around wet handling, and had the fastest wet circle lap. Thankfully, it also kept most of the dry handling character I loved of the PremiumContact 6 and was excellent on the brakes. It wasn't a flawless run, it was pretty average in aquaplaning resistance, external noise and rolling resistance, but the lead it had in the grip categories led it to a dominating win. Yes, it is the newest tire, and yes, based on this test, its also the best.

    Given 99% while driving a Skoda (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 600 spirited miles
    Fantastic tires. Previous tires were Michelin ps4. These 7s are possibly better in every department. Highly recommend them. Very impressed.
