Continental Sport Contact 5 Reviews

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly town for 0 average miles
had these fitted to my 1.25L petrol fiesta last week and the difference is unbelievable.

I had Bridgestone E300s on previously which have been totally out done.

I bought these tyres wanting great grip in both wet and dry and that is exactly what I have got.

My Bridgestones were pretty bad in the wet, they span all the time and I slid around a fair bit.
it's near impossible to spin them on the Conti's, I feel ten times safer knowing I am heading in to winter weather!

I know they will wear down quick but I bought them knowing this... I suppose a softer compound all round grippier tyre will wear down quicker.
but I would rather spend an extra £100 on tyres than risk my life on lesser quality ones.

I paid £220 for 4 brand new including fitting!

will be getting these again for sure!

Bought a £500 heap 2000 Astra when I was doing a barn conversion.

Tyres lasted 7000 miles. In the most rubbish engined version.

Given 66% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Mondeo (235-45-18-W)
Driving on mostly motorways for 6,000 easy going miles
I drive traffic police cars with Goodyear F1's and they are driven HARD everywhere with harsh acceleration, braking, corners etc. with the car heavily loaded. And the F1's last longer than these tyres on my private car driven sedately!!!! Good grip, but awful wear rate!!! Certainly NOT worth the price tag. Would NEVER buy again!! 8 months motoring for £350 an axle?!! Rip off!

Driving on mostly country roads for 6,000 average miles
I drive safely within the speed limits and have never spun the wheels on my rear wheel drive pride and joy, yet, the rears are bald after 6000 miles. The fronts have probably got 3000 miles left. Not worth the £700 pound I paid for the set of 4.

been driving it mostly on twisty roads, 30% on higway,hard driving about 1k km,pretty ok summer tyre if you're looking for grip in wet, on dry tarmac you have no idea if your gripping or losing, after 6000km half tyre gone, bad feedback, i'd buy it again if i'd be a millionare, going back on michelin PE next year,

Given 67% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Mondeo Titanium X (235-45-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 12 average miles
Nothing special for the price. Expensive for a Mondeo that does a mix of motorway and general driving not really impressed, wont be spending £400 for 12,000 miles again.
