Two weeks ago we said us, that we will bring you something more than boring review from tyre producers. This reviews are full of superlatives to colour it to the best. Why not to publish reviews from the peoples for which is driving the bread and butter. In coincidence, our good friend Jaromir Jirik, MD agreed to our idea. He was long time in the Czech representation of enduro and he is multiple winner of the international racing competitions. For information, he is worlds recognized coach of the professional sportsmen. Now he is sports coach of Skoda Motorsport team drivers Jan Kopecky and Juho Hanninen. And what have Mr. Jiřík common with Barum Polaris 3 a Continental Conviwintercontact TS850 tyres review? Many. He is not affraid to present his own opinion. whether the positive or negative to the quality of tested tyres.

Testing of the both set of tyres was going on testing perimeter in Austria in winter conditions. Drives was not only on classic dry and wet surfaces, but on the snowy and ince covered way. Because of this conditions we can bring you really not bought review.

Continental ContiWinterContact TS850

The first tested set Continental ContiWinterContact TS850. Testing was going on the saloon car VW Passat with tyre size 205/55 R16. It is the most used tyre size. It is suitable for sports style driving, and for the drivers which likes driving in bad conditions. It is confirmed, that the quality of this tyres is not  excluded for rallysport. Tyre is very good in copying the track and this quality do not affect nor extreme weather in the Alps. We was pleased by outstanding stability on the snow. This tyres has very short braking distance namely on all of the surfaces – wet, dry, snowy i icy. At the end we have to say, that it is the tyre with very high quality for more demanding drivers of higher middle and higher class cars.

Barum Polaris 3

The second test of the tyres was Barum Polaris 3 with size 195/65 R15. Tested car was Skoda Octavia 2. It managed very well with the bad conditions. On the dry surface, and on ice and snow was the output was equalled with good results. Worse results was on the wet asphalt. On the snow drive we felt a bit slippery . We reccomend this tyres for drivers, which likes fluent and safe driving style. We absolutely nod reccomend it for the sports driving style. This tyre is suitable for middle and lower class cars.
