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.

'A milestone in the development of the Pirelli range, P ZERO™ has been chosen as original equipment for the most performance orientated and powerful models on the market. A reference point for the ultra high performance segment, it is characterised by an asymmetric tread pattern. Ideal for all top of the range sports and high-powered cars, it can also be considered for powerful mid-range vehicles.'
It is a ultra high performance tyre, technologically the most advanced.A tyre designed for the most prestigious OE fitments on premium new models.Another milestone in a continuous story of succes.The new tread design offers superior handling and braking performance on both dry and wet surfaces.The new high grip coumpund with nano-composites in the perfect solution for an enhanced driving stability and sensitive steering control.Three wide longitudinal grooves ensure an high aquaplaning resistance, while the s-shaped sipesare deigned to reduce rolling noise.The external area with large, rigid blocks is the ideal support to exalt handling characteristics when driving on the limit.
As of the autumn, the conditions of circulation are degraded, and the motorists must face various conditions of road: dryness, rain, snow or glaze. To face these varied conditions, YOKOHAMA proposes an extraordinary range of tires winter. With its 3 profiles, the range winter of continuous YOKOHAMA to develop and presents a new tire top-of-the-range winter: W.drive.
The design of the asymmetrical tread to high-rigidity gets high performances balanced on dryness, the rain or the roads snow-covered. The 3 right grooves (or 4 according to dimensions') support the drainage of water or snow, even molten, and push back the limits of aquaplaning. The paving stones have different rigidities according to their provision on the tread. More rigid on the outside of the profile, they support adherence in the turns on dryness, whereas on the interior, their flexibility take part in adherence on snow.
One of the major innovations of W.driveTM resides in the plates “3D “with a surface in polyhedron allowing of great performances on dryness, under the rain or on the snow-covered roads. The single design of the plates makes it possible the blocks of gum to be based the ones on the others, thus preserving the rigidity of the paving stones on a broader surface of contact. In parallel, this technology makes it possible to increase the density of the plates on the surface of the tread, thus multiplying the effect of blade on the snow-covered or icy roads.
The mixture of gum with its “flexible polymers “makes it possible to maintain the flexibility and flexibility thus adherence at low temperature. By integrating “micro silica “in the mixture, one improves rigidity at higher temperature. This very specific association is effective only if integration is homogeneous.
Thanks to extraordinary technology ZERUMATM, exclusive patent of YOKOHAMA, whose secrecy lies in the optimal dispersion of silica in the mixture of gum, the integration of the “micro silica “is optimal, which makes it possible to improve the behavior, motricity and braking some are the conditions of rolling and temperature.
With a broad range of 70 references of the 14 “to 19 “and series 65 to 40, W.drive makes it possible to equip the unit with the automobile park. The indices speed go T (190 km/h) with V (240 km/h) and from many dimensions profit from reinforced indices of load and/or edge of protection of rim. With W.driveTM, to face the winter season and its traps is not any more one concern. Some are the conditions of road, each driver can consider each way in a serene way.

The Asymetric Eagle F1 has been developed specifically with high performance, luxury cars in mind. There cars demand a tyre that's responsive to their predictive safety systems and keeps their raw power under control. Step forward with the Goodyear Eagle F1, a tyre that balacnes performance and control in equal measure. High performance vehicle owners still look for safety first when it comes to choosing a tyre, closely followed by performance and comfort. So the challenge to our engineers was to complement the predictive safety systems found on modern cars and develop a tyre that could control these powerful modern vehicles without loss of performance. The result was the Eagle F1 Asymmetric. Combining our revolutionary Active Cornergrip Technology and Racing Compound derivatives, the pressure is evenly distributed when cornering at high speeds, meaning more contact patch grips the road more of the time.
The ideal choice for sports cars and top end vehicles, balancing performance, safety and respect for the environment. For demanding drivers, the WINTER SOTTOZERO™ SERIE II guarantees excellent performance on dry roads, in the wet and in the presence of snow. In temperatures below 7°C, it counters aquaplaning more effectively when compared to a summer tyre.
An innovative tyre for sports cars and medium to high-powered saloons, it offers excellent driving safety in all road conditions during the cold weather season. For demanding drivers, the Winter SOTTOZERO™ Serie II guarantees excellent performance on dry roads, in the wet and in the presence of snow. In temperatures below 7°C, it counters aquaplaning more effectively when compared to a summer tyre.
The asymmetric tread pattern is divided into two distinct elements. The inner area expels water effectively whilst the external area, with its more rigid and spaced blocks, ensures high levels of grip on snow. These features on the W270 version are enhanced by the exclusive patented twin-compound solution. Characterised by low rolling resistance, the Winter SOTTOZERO™ Serie II also provides low noise levels, enhancing comfort in the cabin.
This V-rated tire provides safe winter driving year after year with controlled power.
