Continental ContiSportContact 5P Tire Reviews

Product Details

The ContiSportContact 5P is Continental Tire's Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of some of the world's most prestigious high performance sports cars, coupes and sedans. Tires in sizes used for staggered fitments are optimized to meet the specific performance requirements of front or rear axle positions.* The ContiSportContact 5P is designed to deliver steering precision, cornering stability and short stopping distances in dry and wet conditions, However, like all summer tires, they are not intended to be driven in near freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

The ContiSportContact 5P benefits from a tread compound with Continental's Black Chilli Technology that features an innovative type of racing-grade carbon black to ensure a speedy warm-up along with special grip resins that optimize traction on wet and dry roads. These new carbon blacks and resins blend the rubber's flexibility (important for traction) with the tread's rigidity (important for handling). This compound is molded into an asymmetric tread design featuring a continuous center rib (or multiple ribs in wider sizes, especially those tuned for rear axle only applications) flanked by a large number of small, interlocked tread blocks. Circumferential grooves help water flow through the footprint to resist hydroplaning while the transverse block edges divert water away from the tread blocks to improve wet traction.
