    Pleased with the tyres when I eventually got them. The best price I could find online. There was a mistake made on the order causing a delay. Oponeo were very good despite the delay, my car was due for service and they delivered the tyres to the garage for me. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    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. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    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. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    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. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    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. Read more Collapse

The Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 uses innovative 3D groove technology. This innovative tread solution reduces braking distances and braking times both on wet and dry surfaces. The new 3D grooves guarantee effective water dispersal, providing outstanding protection against aquaplaning. The 3D grooves also offer increased tyre stability. The ContiPremiumContact 2 is resistant to deformation, which improves driving comfort and drivability. The benefits of this model include short braking distances on wet and dry surfaces and excellent grip, regardless of the state of the road surface.
