Top Continental VikingContact 7 Review

Given 63% while driving a BMW 5 Series 2007 (225/50 R17 T) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
Best studless winter tyre i have ever had.
Good allround. Low noise. Just take it a little easier on very wet tarmac, or very warm dry tarmac, as with all nordic winter tyres.

Not as good as studded tyre on ice, say for example nokian hakka 8, but what tyre are??

Dont know wear rate yet. Continental are usually worn down after 1, tops 2 years. So that is the bad side. Will report later.
