America's largest 'personal shoe shopper' for your vehicle conducts Passenger and Standard Touring All-Season comparison test for drivers looking for a longer tread life, smooth ride and good traction in dry, wet and wintry weather.

SOUTH BEND, Ind., Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TireRack.com, America's largest independent tire tester and consumer-direct source for tires, wheels and performance accessories, released the third set of results from its 19th annual tire testing season. This Passenger and Standard Touring All-Season tire (developed for passenger coupes, sedans, minivans and crossover vehicles) comparison is especially designed to show that there is a selection of new standard replacement options available for consumers that can be much more than "basic," thanks to a growing number of new tire designs available for drivers in search of a long tread life, smooth ride and good traction in dry, wet and wintry weather.

For this test, results conclude that all four tires in this test drove and performed well with Continental's latest Standard Touring All-Season tire, the True Contact with EcoPlus Technology, providing an edge over the competition in fuel efficiency, plus both dry and wet traction. Full test results can be accessed for free by consumers at www.tirerack.com/truecontactresults.

 To find out how Continental's True Contact performs, TireRack.com split the test into two components. First, experts at TireRack.com conducted a 6.0-mile Real World Road Ride followed by a Performance Test Track Drive at its state-of-the-art, 11.7-acre test facility using its BMW 3-Series test car, and compared it to the top three performers in the category: Firestone's Precision Touring, Goodyear's Assurance TripleTred All-Season and the Michelin Defender. The short video of results can be seen at www.tirerack.com/truecontactvideo.

TireRack.com's experts drive on 35-40 different tires every test season (May to September), putting them through a battery of track and road tests that evaluate real-world and performance capabilities at the limits in both wet and dry conditions.
