Continental, Nokian strong performers in Russian tyre test; Bridgestone in last place
Although sitting near the bottom of the size pecking order, a fair number of vehicles still arrive in Russian showrooms fitted with 14-inch rims. Therefore the latest issue of motoring magazine Za Rulem has opted to evaluate tyres for this smaller wheel size. Using a Lada Priora as test vehicle, the publication evaluated 11 size 185/60 R 14 tyres from European and Asian manufacturers at the AvtoVaz proving ground in Togliatti, Russia. Top honours in the test went to Continental’s ContiPremiumContact 5.
