Competitors

The Continental EcoContact 6 is a summer tire that excels in fuel consumption and has low wear rates, according to multiple tests by various organizations. It also has short braking distances on dry roads, very good durability, and good stability in changing curves. However, the tire struggles with aquaplaning on wet roads, resulting in a reduced ability to stop in wet conditions. The low profile of the tire causes it to slide early on wet surfaces, leading to a sometimes uneven distribution of braking power at the limit. The tire can also exhibit delayed steering response and understeering behavior. Overall, the Continental EcoContact 6 is a recommended tire, despite its deficiencies in wet conditions.

Sizes

Continental EcoContact 6 is made in 307 sizes, starting from 155/70 R13 up to 315/30 R22.
