Questions and Answers for the Continental ContiSportContact 5 P

2016-07-06 - I had four of these tyres fitted to my Audi A3 sline Quattro on 7th September last year. My car is in for service and I need to replace the two front tyres after only ten months and twelve miles. Is this normal?

12 miles is not normal, however if you mean 12,000 miles that is not unusual on a powerful front heavy car such as the A3. The Continental Sport Contact 6 offers much improved wear over the 5P


2018-06-01 - I have a 2017 Mercedes C43 AMG 4Matic Estate with Continental ContiSportContact 5 P tyres on as the standard fit, but I find the sidewalls collapse & it gets really unpleasant understeer at parking speeds when using anything over 3/4 of a turn of lock on the steering. I don't know if this is down to the tyres or 4WD steering geometry, but it is really unpleasant & gives me serious doubts about front end grip if I ever really need it. Would you say this is down to the tyres maybe having thin sidewalls, & if so could you recommend a better option for my car? I'm not a particularly fast or aggressive driver & probably prefer comfort over performance...

If this issue is just at parking speeds, it would suggest it's down to the cars geometry rather than the tyre. The Continental Sport Contact 5P do have soft to medium sidewalls, but they also have plenty of grip and high comfort levels and perform well with your Mercedes.

Top Continental ContiSportContact 5 P Review

Given 67% while driving a SEAT Leon ST FR DSG TDI 150HP (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 3,000 spirited miles
What can I say. I am on this website for a reason, and it is not a positive one.
As mentioned many times before, nice tyre, ok grip, a lot of spinning when starting. Maybe it is a car itself, Leon ST FR 150 DSG, but still spins too easy in my opinion.
Wear of the tyre is, shocking. I am fast driver but, honestly I have driven car for over 20 years and never came accross something like that . I have 4k kilometers and I am already concerned about the state of them. Slowing down now so hopefully will get to 8k ! My X5 was really bad, but it was doing 12-15k kilometers !!! I looked at the price of new ones and at approximately 115-130 EUR, I will definitely look into the different brands. Maybe they are all like that these days ??!

Given 90% while driving a Ford Kuga (235/45 R19 V) on a combination of roads for 52,000 easy going miles
Had these tyres fitted from new on 19Ē Ford wheels. Front tyres lasted 19,000 miles(30000kms) and rear tyres are now ready to be replaced after 52,000 miles over 80,000 kms!! I have a sensible driving style and even after towing a large caravan these tyres have always performed well in all conditions and never let me down. Now trying Falken FK510 on fronts, 2000 miles so far performing well.

Given 88% while driving a Skoda (235/45 R20 V) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
Have them as OEM from these factory on my Skoda Kodiaq Vrs.. Amazing levels of grip both in dry and wet conditions. Ideal for spirited driving. Confident braking. Can't say much about the wear as I ve head them on only for 5k kms, so they still have close to tread depth at new....

Trying to pick the very best all season tyre? Watch this!
MINI (215/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
I always get these tyres, 20 k mullahs still have 4mm of tread, been on the car for 2 years. 2005 Mini Cooper s, so not a slow car for its size. Iíve used continental tyres for years and never had any issues, except on a insignia, they go through tyres like no other car Iíve owned.

Renault (225/45 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 17,000 easy going miles
Fitted on Renault Kadjar from new. I have done 17000 gentle miles in 3.5 yrs now rear tyres down the wear indicators; front tyres are also nearly there. Not a good tyre for wear; very disappointed. When car in 2 wheel drive mode wheels often skidded on quick take off at roundabouts so l always needed to have car in 4 wheel drive mode. I therefore from this assume they do not have the best grip.
