Auto Motor und Sport: UHP Summer Tire Test R20 2019
For 2019, Sport Auto Magazine has tested eight ultra high performance summer tyres in 245/30 R20 using a Civic Type R.
The new Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport wasn't included in the test, and instead the twice replaced Asymmetric 2 was left representing Goodyear. This meant the Continental SportContact 6 and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S could fight it out for the top spot overall.
