Matador is the sister company of Continental. The Matador tyres use the same rubber and resin as Continental tyres. I have currently done 8,000 miles on a full set of 4 ( 225/40R18 92Y) and are about half worn. I previously had Continental sports on my Focus ST and these Matadors seem to match or even beat grip in both wet and dry conditions. The tyres also the extend alloys slightly to save any damage to your alloys when clipping curbs.
The MP 46 HECTORRA 2 Tyre tread is designed for higher and luxury class vehicles with ultra high performance for summer application. Its designation for operation on high performance automobiles at high speeds is based on its excellent braking properties and reliable maneuverability on wet as well as dry surfaces, as well as its high resistance to aquaplaning. Operational safety of these high-performance cars is one of the most important criteria for designing this segment of tyres.
MATADOR will introduce the MP46 to the UHP market segment in the following sizes 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20”, in the highest performance categories:
V up to 240 km/h, W up to 270 km/h and Y up to 300 km/h.
