SEAT Leon Cupra 290 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Continental WinterContact TS 850 P given 71% (225-45-17-V)
Driving on mostly country roads for 3000 average miles
Tyres deliver good feedback and do well in the dry and wet. They seem a bit harsh. Braking distance in the dry is alright. Could do better.

Wear is my problem with this tyre. I do drive mostly average. Like 10% of my drives are spirited.
Front tyres are already down to 5-5.5mm.

Not quiet sure if i would buy them again. Since wear is quiet high

Writing about the Continental ContiSportContact 5 P given 54% (235-35-19-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 6000 spirited miles
These tyres came fitted as standard on my Leon Cupra 290.

Dry grip is very good, handles well through country lanes which I drive most days and braking is really good.
As another reviewer pointed out, they do tend to cause pretty bad wheel hop when pulling away quickly at like a junction or don't really grip well in a straight line.
I'm a slightly spirited driver but I don't drive on the limits of the tyres at all.

They are now down to 3mm after 6000 miles which is extremely shocking considering these cost £130+ per corner.
Now they have gotten to this wear level, wet grip is reduced massively sliding all over the place and they've become really unpredictable in wet weather.

I probably won't use these tyres again due to the poor wear rate.
