Tyres

Our tyres section covers the world of performance car tyres in detail with reviews, group tests, news and advice

Tyres

Tyres are absolutely critical to the way that any car drives, so we pay particularly close attention to them here at evo. From news on the latest tyre products from  top manufacturers to our in-depth tyre tests, where we put the leading tyres head-to-head in a range of conditions, and advice on choosing the right tyres for your car, we’ve got a firm grip on the subject.

In this tyre section you’ll find reviews and group tests of road and track tyres for performance cars as well as all-season and winter rubber designed for colder, wetter weather. We advise you on caring for the tyres you’ve got on your car now and sourcing the best replacements when the time comes, while also explaining the technology behind the performance tyres of today and tomorrow.

Below you’ll find our review of the latest Continental SportContact 7 range, a major player in the ultra high performance tyre class, plus news of Michelin’s first Pilot Sport EV tyre, its first performance tyre specifically developed for EVs. Scroll down to find our latest tyre pages but first here are the links to our industry leading tyres tests…
