Tyre Reviews: UHP Summer Tire Test R19

The test car was a Toyota Supra, fitted with 255/35 R19 front tires, and 275/35 R19 rear tires. Besides Continental, the test also involved the recently launched Bridgestone Potenza Sport, as well as Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport, Toyo Proxes Sport A, Kumho Ecsta PS71, Vredestein Ultrac Vorti+, Nankang Sportnex AS-2+, and Federal Evoluzion ST-1. In addition, Jonathan Benson tested the cheapest set of tires he could buy online for this Supra, which was a mix of Star Performer for the front axle and Goodride for the wider rear.
