Ive never had any complaints re: the Contis on my 172, huge grip in the wet and dry. Of course if you gun the throttle in the wet your wheels are gonna spin no matter what tyre you have on it.
Also Autocar did a test a few months back where it pitted most of the top hot hatches round a track, the 172 beat all of them(Civic Type R by 1 second!!). The track was drenched, as I recall there was no mention of sever understeer or lack of grip!! Again EVO did a group tyre test and the Conti came second!
Oh and who said the Contis were Eco Tyres, try telling that Halfords mate, £106 per tyre!!!!!!!!!
