This model is the ideal solution for mid to high-end vehicles with a high-performance engine. The Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 ensures an excellent driving experience on both wet and dry surfaces. Due to its asymmetric tread, the model quickly disperses water and maintains outstanding grip in all conditions, thanks in large part to the innovative 3D grooves, which reduce braking distances, dispersing water more quickly and thus minimising the risk of aquaplaning. This 3D technology also ensures better tyre stability.
The Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 is more resistant to deformation and mechanical damage, resulting in greater driving comfort and better overall steerability. This model is made from an innovative compound, designed to extend the tyre's lifetime and ensure good grip, whatever the weather. This all means that the Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 is also exceptionally safe when travelling at high speeds, meeting the expectations of those drivers who see this as a key issue when selecting tyres. Its improved design and optimised contours help ensure better driving stability and improved steering precision. The model also reduces noise levels thanks to a tread design that effectively muffles sound. Rolling resistance is also reduced, resulting in lower fuel consumption and extending the model's lifetime.

I’m driving a lot for a passenger car driver and use lots of cars for that. I have a really good comparison when it comes for tyres of different producers and similar sizes. For me Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 in size 205/55R16 is close to an ideal tyre. I can’t feel ABS work on dry road and I have brakes of 312mm on the front and 256 in the back – like Audi S3. Good handling and grip on bands. Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 is ideal when starting even with my 189HP and 390 Nm car. Continental ContiPremiumcontact 2 is very silent at every speed. Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 has one thing which other sport tyres doesn’t have: it puts out every roughness and holes on a road. On wet road holds road very good ( by far only Uniroyal RainSport was similar ). Aquaplaning just doesn’t exist for Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 and when it drifts you still have time to react. Besides, riding on a wet road is very silent. Buying Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 I knew they might wear quite fast – I didn’t mind. I only wanted to have good rubber parameters and comfort of driving. So far I drove about 15000 miles and still 60-65% tread left. So durability is normal as other premium class tyres. I really recommend buying Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 as they are worth every single pound spent on them.
Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 has two faces. If the tread is over 6mm than Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 is very good on dry road – perfect on wet ground. Waterholes are not able to slow my car down and Aquaplaning doesn’t exist. When driving aggressively, car acts like being glued to the road on bands and while braking grants you full control. You can’t feel any roughness on tyres 225/60. Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 looks good even if it is worn a bit. I reached 4.6mm after 2 seasons on one pair and 5.3mm on the other and still very good on dry road, however it feels like losing its idealness when braking. When it goes for driving Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 on wet road it is a large risk: aquaplaning doesn’t exist but it loses its grip on bands and while driving it feels like driving on an ice. When snow suddenly felt, I didn’t manage to exchange the tyres and was driving 3 days on them. It is not possible to ride them on snow – car had to be pulled out of the snow and brakes not working... Resuming: due to a high price and fast wear I wouldn’t buy Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 next time.
The car the tyres are fitted to is an Alfa 156, distance driven is one season, 30 thousand miles. Previously I had Fulda EcoControl tyres. I bought them because of the test results, and I have to say that after this purchase, I stopped to believe tests. of course, there's no tragedy, but they are not worth the money, after changing from Fuldas (much cheaper) I have to say that Continental ContiPremiumContact 2s aren't any better, immediately after fitting they were pretty cool, but unfortunately they quickly began to lose their properties. The most annoying thing is squealing in corners, which is, according to me, worse than average from the beginning, and becomes more severe as the distance driven increases despite moderate abrasion. When it comes to braking, it's quite good, the tyre grips fairly well when starting, behaviour on a wet road is at moderate level. I think the biggest advantage is low abrasion - after 35 thousand miles there's still half of tread. Unfortunately, the drop of the properties is as strong as for example at Fulda's life span's end. I didn't notice any difference in fuel consumption.
When it comes to grip on dry and wet, noise, handling, Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 is flawless. It gives a particularly good impression on wet (fitted to a car with a powerful engine). However, there's a "but" of a different kind. I had bad luck and received faulty tyres. They vibrated and there were problems with balancing. Balancing attempts in numerous workshops brought no result. I even got new rims to make sure it's only the tyres' fault. I ended up sending complaint to the manufacturer. And here's the problem: it was unsuccessful. According to some wise guy in Continental the tyres are OK (?!). So, definitely no more Continental. Not because they do bad tyres - I think they're good - but the way of attitude to the customer. I understand that and "accident at work" can happen but I can't come to terms with a total lack of respect for the customer. I threw 300 pounds down the drain. So, I don't discourage you from buying their tyres, but you do it at your own risk - if anything happens, don't count on manufacturer's support.
If any new, better tyres don't appear on the market, my next purchase will surely be Continental ContiPreminumContact 2 again. Distance traveled - not much, 10 thousand miles, so it's hard for me to give an objective assessment of all categories, especially because I did not have. any "emergency situations" on wet / dry surface. I guess the only drawback is abrasion (after a year tread loss is up to 2 mm, they should do fine for 5 seasons); supposedly they should get into aquaplaning, however I didn't notice anything (and I hope I won't!). For me, it's a good tyre, the most universal summer tyre of good quality. When buying tyres, I took into account almost all models from Nokian through Continental ContiPremiumContact 1, Pirelli (mixed opinions!) to Kleber and Barum Bravuris, maybe except Michelins (too expensive, the price is not justified by quality!). maybe only Bridgestone Turanza ER 300 are as good,. better (?), more expensive and louder. I I recommend Contientals.
