As a sports tire for winter use, the ContiWinterContact™ TS 810 Sport combines superb handling with good wet grip and safe driving characteristics on wintry roads. Stiff shoulder blocks deliver outstanding cornering stability. Its band-shaped tread structure in the center zone, similar to that of summer tires, ensures shortest braking distances on dry roads. Thicker sipes with their sipe spacers on the inside of the tyre keep the sipes open when they pass through the ground contact area. This makes the sipe fill up with more snow and boosts the amount of extra grip on wintry roads.
Developed for powerful medium range and luxury verhicels. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Outstanding performance in all winter conditions. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including the models eg. Audi A5/A6, BMW Series 1/3/7 and Porsche Boxster/Carrera/Panamera.

The void ratio of the inside and outside are respectively 38% and 34%, and it can improve tire’s drainage efficiency and also wet handling.
With broadened circumferential groove width, the section area of inside/ outside grooves are increased 21.3% and 43.8% respectively compared to the conventional design. And it can increase the volume to contain more water for better drainage performance.
Brand new profile design and reinforced sidewall design can upgrade tire stiffness.
Serrated wall of circumferential groove: Discharge water in the circumferential grooves promptly and effectively, as well as reduce the noise caused by the friction between airflow and groove wall.
For inside and outside lateral groove on tread shoulder, we use chamfering design to optimize the angle of lateral grooves, and it can reduce tire’s rolling sound and improve block stiffness effectively.
3D software was used to design the tyre profile and do simulation tests to allow the best possible results to be gained before creating samples, maximizing the water dispersal, rolling resistance and performance of the tyre.
Wider section grooves between tread blocks allow better drainage performance. Serrated grooves on the tread block walls reduce road noise and quickly disperse water, whilst chamfered lateral grooves on the tread shoulder also help to reduce the rolling noise.

With the launch of the ContiSportContact™ 5, Continental has developed a tyre which is equally suitable for sporty cars + SUVs with sporty driving characteristics. With this new development, the tyre engineers have made significant progress in camparison to the popular predecessor ContiSportContact™ 3: Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions.
Excellent road grip and safety when cornering.
Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage. This was made possible due to a new compound which focuses on maximum power transmission and provides low rolling resistance whilst driving normally. This rubber compound which carries the name 'BlackChilli' uses the various vibrations of the tyre.
For high-performance and luxury vehicles. The performance tyre, with outstanding handling and control.
Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. With our Black Chilli Technology you have excellent road grip and handling just as safety when cornering. Highly recommended by Auto Bild in their summer tyre test 2014 (sizes tested: 225/50 R 17 W/Y).
Excellent road grip and handling just as safety when cornering. The macro-block design of the tyre’s outside shoulder provides a larger contact area, which can therefore adapt optimally to the road surface. The ContiSportContact™ 5 offers improved road grip and thus more safety when cornering.
Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions. When braking, the tyre has a high natural frequency within the compound. Short-chain polymers in the Black Chilli compound of the ContiSportContact™ 5 react to this braking frequency and thus provide optimal energy absorption. The resulting heat shortens the braking distance on wet and dry roads.
Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage. At a constant speed, the vibrations in the compound are significantly lower. The long-chain polymers within the compound can release the absorbed energy better, resulting in considerably reduced rolling resistance. Thus, the tyre runs more easily and remains cool – for a higher mileage and a reduced fuel consumption.
One of the most crucial requirements of tires fitted on high performance, sports cars is agile steering precision.
This ensures your vehicle maintains good adherence to the road in face of the considerable forces acting on the tires when driving at high speeds, making abrupt manoeuvres or changes in road surfaces. The asymmetric tread ribs on the ContiSportContact™ 3 are designed to absorb these forces. On dry roads, the new tread pattern ribs provide outstanding braking capability and steering precision, by absorbing the forces exerted on braking. This means a reduction in stopping distances. On wet surfaces, the unique grooves allow increased clearance of water for better resistance to aquaplaning.
New: The asymmetrical pattern ribs. The pattern ribs provide shorter braking distances. Longitudinal forces come into effect when braking. These forces are retained by the continuous pattern ribs due to their high longitudinal stiffness. The result is an improved braking performance. The asymmetry secures improved steering precision.During swift and abrupt steering manoeuvres high lateral forces act on the pattern ribs from the outside. The angled sides stabilise the ribs and reduce their deformation under such forces thus resulting in an increased steering precision.
Developed for high-performance vehicles. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Excellent safety when driving at speed. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including the models eg. Audi A4/A8, BMW Series 3/5/7, Mercedes-Benz AMG E-class Coupé, Porsche 911/Boxster and VW Passat CC.
