The Continental ContiSportContact 5 is a ultra high performance tyre developed and tested with OE car partners. The ContiSportContact 5 has been designed to deliver maximum safety mixed with driving pleasure.

Continental have constructed the ContiSportContact 5 with a supple ‘macro-block’ design - this works to increases the total contact area between the tyre and road surface for added grip when cornering. This results in superb grip and stability when cornering.


Their use of ‘Black Chilli Technology’ - which is the combination of grip enhancing resins with highly structured carbon black - also aids in delivering short braking distances.

Excellent stability throughout the life of the tyre is achieved with a 0° hybrid cap ply which also helps achieve precise steering, thanks to the tyre's circumferential stiffness and radial flexibility.


Customer Comments

  • I went for the same Continental tyres as were originally fitted. provided the best price quote and a very good choice of local tyre fitters for the 3 tyres I replaced. I have now covered their first 1,000 miles in variable weather conditions, including very heavy rain, and the tyres have performed noticeable better.

  • Excellent grip overall and very good in the wet. Slightly higher road noise compared to some other brands . Extended sidewall which protects alloys. Reasonable price compared to other premium brands. Would buy again
