Continental ContiSportContact 3 features

"Extremely sporty and uncompromising on safety" is how the manufacturer describes the Continental ContiSportContact 3. The model has been designed to perform very well in any conditions and to ensure safety during everyday driving. The designers have worked hard to ensure outstanding steering precision, which means that the car maintains its grip on the road, even at high speeds, and remains stable during sudden manoeuvres.

The tyre's asymmetric tread pattern helps disperse water and prevents the car from skidding. Meanwhile, innovative tread ribs ensure steering precision and high performance levels on dry roads, whilst also helping to reduce braking distances, making driving on Continental ContiSportContact 3 tyres exceptionally safe. Steering accuracy in any weather can also be attributed to the curved edges of the tread ribs, which stabilise the tyre and reduce deformation as a result of the impact of lateral forces on the tyre. This model is the perfect solution for drivers looking for a reliable driving experience and excellent performance specifications, regardless of the road conditions and whatever the weather. The tyre offers a quiet and comfortable driving experience thanks to the use of a unique compound in its manufacture, which helps muffle tyre noise. This compound also has reduced weight - the designers have made use of this feature and the Continental ContiSportContact 3 therefore guarantees lower rolling resistance, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.

    I already bought Continental ContiSportContact 3 for the second time. Once again I'm very satisfied. Best tyres I ever had. In the past I used to test tyres on some big empty space, like empty parkings for instance, just to check how they performs when it comes to drive fast and turn immedietely for example. I'm not proffesional race driver but for sure I'm experienced one. I didn't do it for some time but I decided to test this Continental model like that, so I did. Excellent tyre I have to say. I didn't know what high quality tyre it is when I had my first set of them. After my test I realized what premium class really means nowadays. Perfect grip and traction. Stunning control on the vehicle for the whole time. If tyre can handle some crazy manovers like that it means it is really safe for everyday use and this is the most important for me personally. I can recommend this model with any doubt.

    I'm surprised that this model is not produced any more. There is next generation of this but I'm a big fan on Continental ContiSportContact 3 and I'm really happy that it is still possible to get them. I used them on the track, during many travels on curvy roads and for everyday use as well. They are still in good condition afer so many miles of not always calm driving. Perfect grip on dry asphalt. Great control when speeding. If it will be still possible I will buy this model once again in the future for sure. Recommended for everybody who likes fast driving.

    This is my second set of Continental tyres and first one of this particular model. I drove about 6000 miles on them now. Continental ContiSportContact 3 performs ideally on dry surface. Braking and tracktion (two the most important attributes for me) are excellent. I had no opportunity to test them on some heavy weather conditions to be honest but I'm quite sure that there would be no problems. Maybe it is not the most significant thing but I like the way how the tread pattern looks like. I further recommend.

    Tyres are great either on dry and wet road. This model has perfect traction, decent driving comfort and nice noise level. I used some other premium class tyres and they were not so good as Continentals. I think that there is some influence from my car which is Mercedes SL500 into my opinion. However Continental ContiSportContact 3 in some sizes is approved for my vehicle by a manufacturer. I'm pretty sure that this model would perform excellent on any car same as on the Mercedes.

    I had exactly the same tyre model previously and bought it once again for my Passat. I must admit they are sensational. Good tire for aggressive driving and for calm drivers as well. Ideal for dry and wet asphalt. Really good aquaplanning resistance. Very stable and confident during fast driving - even about 145 mph. Tyre has low rolling resistance and is not noisy. I think it is becouse the sport tread pattern. Good choice and worth to recommend.
