Precise steering is crucial for sports cars with powerful engines. Manufacturers understand that, consumers appreciate it. And this is exactly why 225 45 R17 is the right tyre size at the right moment.
Designed with the needs of speed lovers in mind, 225 45 R17 tyres are not exclusive to speed cars. This size benefits consumers with a smooth ride and increased control of the car, which is why manufacturers integrate it as a standard parameter in plenty of vehicle models.
Goodyear and Continental produce 225 45 R17 tyres, but not only topnotch manufacturers present this option to the market. Lower end producers occasion consumers to purchase this tyre size at affordable prices.
Safety, aesthetic appeal
This tyre doesn’t just perform well: it also complements a car’s aesthetic appeal. Performance remains, however, the criteria when purchasing 225 45 R17 tyres.
Tests carried out by ADAC usually result in good ratings: consumers can enjoy a balanced performance. But they must pay attention to what brand they purchase, since parameters aside; brand differences do weigh in to how the tyres work.
Thus, ContiSportContact 5 from Continental, Eagle F1 Asymentric 2 from Goodyear, Hankook Ventus S1 Evo 2 K117 and Dunlop Sport Maxx RT count as the most reliable models according to the performed tests. It seems Continental‘s ContiSportContact 5 is the safest of all 225 45 R17 tyres when subject to wet track tests.
Dry track tests indicate Goodyear‘s Eagle F1 Asymentric 2 particularly recommendable for dry roads, without excluding a fine performance on wet roads.
