hey guys and gals out there tire shopping, ive had every tire brand out there in the past 30 years, these sport contact 2 came with my 2008 bmw 550i M-sport from factory, No road noise , grip is great, steering feels lighter then most tires. When these wore down 65,000 kms later I was selling my car and bought some cheap new tires called Zenna Argus Uhp and Omg worst mistake ever, faster the car went louder the humming got , looked 2 sizes bigger due to thickness of tires, felt like I had No power steering, Long story short I would buy Conti's again over any tire again !!! hope this helped pay the price but Oh well !!
They have excellent grip in the dry and they are very progressive and controllable even at the limit. Even now at the end of their life they grip very good for the tread they have left(because of a camber issue the inside is almost like a slick but even with that they are progressive) Wet grip is very good for high performance tyres. Noise and comfort I know it's not great but it's not a concern for me. The only downside is that the wear rate is not that great compared to other tyres,but the grip is excellent so it's logical.
Original equipment on my 2016 F-type v6, 340 hp RWD coupe. Driven summer and winter in New York State but only on dry roads...no rain or snow driving. Below 40F I slow down some but still enjoy the ride, handling and grip. Have 7.5 k miles on them and wear looks very even with plenty of tred depth remaining. The tires are very quiet, in summer I drive with the windows down below 55mph where wind noise becomes objectionable. Windows up I can’t hear the tires on blacktop or concrete. I will not hesitate to replace these with new Contentials.
