Top Continental Sport Contact 2 Review

Given 100% while driving a BMW E60 M5 (275/30 R19) on mostly town for 65 easy going miles
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 !!

Given 83% while driving a Peugeot 106 gti (195/45 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 12,000 spirited miles
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.

Given 87% while driving a Jaguar F Type (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 7,500 average miles
Original equipment on my 2016 F-type v6, 340 hp RWD coupe. Driven summer and winter in New York State but only on dry 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.

Given 76% while driving a Mercedes Benz C180K Avantgarde (255/40 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 9,000 spirited miles
I had to replace my tyres and got these Conti SC2 on the rear axle.
My Meredes is RWD vehicle and the tyres are superb.
Dry or wet conditions is equal .

This week I mounted my winter tyres at the car and I inspected the wear of the Continental tyres and they were completely worn to 2mm.
I drove about 16K km (10K miles) with them.

But I must say these are one of the best tyres for a safe drive under all conditions.
Never had any grip problems even in heavy rain, no aquaplaining or whatso ever.

These are expensive,but worth every penny.

Nissan (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 70 average miles
These Tyres are the original ones that came with the car. They have lasted 109,000 km and still have 4mm of tread and have won absolutely evenly, which is amazing.

The Nissan Spec V will test any tyre, and yet the grip in both wet and dry is still fantastic, even with the reduction of tread at life end.

The only symptom of old age (2009 tyre) is a bit of vibration at high speed (minimal) and maybe a bit more noise. They are a solid tyre with a very firm ride and slight road noise, typical for this profile in a W speed rating.

The quality of this tyre is a credit to Continental and shows you really do get what you pay for in a premium tyre.
The best brands I have used are Michelin and Continental. If you are buying tyres, spend as much as you can, and get the best.

It might save your life or someones else's.

Given 63% while driving a Skoda Superb II combi 2.0 tdi cr (225/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 22,000 average miles
The tyres perform incredibly well in both wet and dry condition. The road feedback is excellent throughout and in the wet always gave me lots of confident. I have now got to the point where I have to replace the front at 22k with the rear still at 5mm (but I will replace the full set). Performance is constant throughout the tyre's life and even now the front are down to 3mm I still have plentu of feedback and even in the wet there is no issue whatsoever.
The main issue I have is not how they worn (can't complain having covered 22k from new) but how noisy these tyres are. The noise is unbearable unless you drive on a perfectly smooth surface and it is always been like this, doesn't really matter how old the tyre is. I have tried different tyres pressure without achieving a decent level of comfort.
I will now replace the full set with Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2 hoping to achieve a better mileage/gallon (I found the rolling resistance of the continental being quite high) and, most of all, a better comfort.
I repeat, the only reason for me not to go with a new set of Continental (I think the design of the new CSC6 is absolutely beautiful) is merely based on the noise/comfort level.
