Unlimited driving fun thanks to excellent grip.
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.
The SP-7 is a tyre specially developed for SUVs.
The tread design improves the handling of the car when wet and reduces noise levels.
Two straight broad grooves & arc sub-grooves design can enhance drainage efficiency and prevent from hydroplaning.
Noise prevention bar on the shoulder groove can reduce the pattern noise.
The blocks with sipes make the block stiffness feasible, and improve the premature tire wear and riding comfort.
High performance tyre designed with excellent handling, stable cornering & drainage performance.
The solid,sturdy central ribs,attached tread lugs,plus asymmetrical tread ribs ensure optimum,longitudinal stiffness in the tyre and reduced movement in the tread. This means steering forces are transmitted straight to the road.
A supple macro-block design on the outer shoulder and solid central ribs ensure that the tyre adapts perfectly to the road surface. Particularly during fast cornering the contact patch is increased. The driver receives excellent feedback when approaching the limit and the tyre provides outstanding grip with maximum stability.
With excellent motorway speed stability and precise handling on wet or dry roads, Proxes T1 Sport SUV answers the need for an Ultra High Performance tire for these executive cars.
Increased contact area through use of wide ribs with shallow and narrow groove to maintain good tread contact with the road.
Improved handling and high grip.
Two wide grooves ensure good water drainage.
Better braking achieved via a rib based pattern configuration, which increases the tread’s rigidity in the back and forward directions.
Increased contact area through the use of wide blocks with shallow and narrow grooves to maintains good tread contact with the road. Improved handling with responsive steering feel and high grip.
High-speed stability + handling response are improved by adoption of a wide center rib.
*285 section width and larger
The inside ribs have a solid shape, which enhances rigidity, improves braking performance and reduces irregular wear.
Wide straight grooves provide a wide water channel for better aquaplaning resistance.
Cooper Zeon 4XS Sport
Functionalised Polymer with Silica:
Formulated to give enhanced wet grip, tread wear and promote fuel saving.
3D Micro-Gauge Siping:
Innovative technology allowing the sipe walls to interlock; this keeps the tread blocks stable under load and also controls the amount of heat generation improving both handling and mileage.
Extends beyond the rim flange helping to protect against rim damage when a wheel scuffs a kerb.
Asymmetrical tread design:
Open inner shoulder enhances wet grip, wide circumferential grooves help resist aquaplaning and solid outer shoulder optimises dry handling.
Range of fitments:
Available in 16” to 21” rim diameters with H, V, W and Y speed ratings.
The Ultrac Vorti is an Ultra High Performance tyre in the absolute top segment of the market. The tyre was developed in close collaboration with the Italian design company Giugiaro, and its slimline design and asymmetric profile give this tyre an extremely sporty and unique appearance. The tyre excels in terms of grip, handling, comfort and braking behaviour on both dry and wet road surfaces. By making use of innovative technologies, the tyre is also surprisingly quiet.
The Ultrac Vorti is also available in rear axle sizes with an adapted profile and specially-tailored structure, especially for sports cars that have different tyre sizes on the front and rear axle. Due to the fact that it is the front tyres that dissipate the majority of the water when the road surface is wet, the focus for the rear tyres was on increased grip and stability.
High-Silica Low Modulus Tread Compound: Adds superior ice, slush and wet grip even in extreme, cold temperatures. Patented Circumferential Snow-Groove Technology: Enhances snow-on-snow grip capabilities. 132 Stud Count Utilising 12-Row Stud Pattern: Provides superior grip capability when studded. 66 Tread Pitch Count: Increases the number of biting edges for improved snow, ice and wet grip capability.
The ADVAN S.T. V802 has succeeded and further sophisticated the excellent high-speed performance of the AVS S/T type-1 and achieved a high-level balance between high-speed capability and driving safety and comfort, which is required by new-generation SUVs. It offers a strong grip performance under a variety of conditions by combining W-shaped directional tread pattern with a tread compound that has been developed specifically for the ADVAN S.T. to achieve low temperature-dependence capability, while attaining high-level driving comfort through the use of the '5-pitch variation' technology-based pitch sequence. Designed specifically for the ADVAN S.T., the tire structure offers both a handling performance based on a consideration of low-position gravity center specific to new-generation SUVs and running stability in a high-speed zone up to 300 km/h.
Vredestein’s Ultra High Performance winter tyre, the Wintrac xtreme S, was developed to stand up to the extreme weather conditions in the coldest season of the year. Maximum safety on snow and ice are as important as grip and steering precision for the Wintrac xtreme S, especially on the cold snow-free surfaces on which people drive the majority of the time.
Thanks to its Internal Sipe Locking Technology (ISLT), the Wintrac xtreme S takes the characteristics of a top-class winter tyre to a whole new level. The technology minimises deformation of the sipes in the tread, resulting in excellent course stability, greater steering precision and an enhanced sense of safety at higher speeds. There are many sizes available with the Y speed index and - combined with the great looks that come from a Giugiaro-designed tyre - this makes the Wintrac xtreme S suitable for the highest performance and most exclusive cars.
