The ContiSportContact 3 is Continental Tire's Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of powerful sports cars, sports coupes and luxury sedans. The ContiSportContact 3 is designed to combine outstanding braking capability and agile steering precision. Like all summer tires, the Continental ContiSportContact 3 is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
ContiSportContact 3 tires feature an asymmetric design with solid tread blocks and a continuous rib on the outboard shoulder to improve responsiveness and cornering stability, while continuous intermediate ribs provide constant rubber-to-road contact to reduce noise and control the longitudinal forces experienced when braking. The continuous circumferential tread grooves help disperse water to resist hydroplaning and their asymmetrically angled walls further stabilize the tread ribs, increasing steering precision and reducing deformation while cornering. The notched shoulder blocks on the inboard portion enhance wet weather traction.
The tire's structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by nylon to stabilize the tread area and enhance handling as well as high-speed capability.
ContiSeal™ tires contain an innovative new technology which seals punctures in the tread area.
ContiSeal™ tires have a sticky, viscous layer from shoulder to shoulder that instantly seals punctures caused by nails and other objects up to 5mm in diameter. The layer temporarily seals the vast majority of tire tread punctures.
The material in the sealant layer prevents air loss even if the penetrating object becomes dislodged. As a result there is no need to stop straight away or change the tire immediately in the event of a puncture. Despite this, the tire should be taken as soon as possible to a tire specialist who can examine it to determine if it needs a permanent repair.
ContiSeal™ tires are instantly recognisable by the nail symbol on the sidewall and are compatible with all commonly available wheel rims.
ContiSeal™ tires – the benefits at a glance:
Seals punctures in the tread area caused by penetrating objects up to 5mm in diameter.
Holes are sealed even if the penetrating object becomes dislodged.
Have the same high performance under normal driving conditions as non ContiSealTM tires . No need to stop straight away or change the tire.
