    Imo splendid tyre. They provide excellent grip in corners. It is a bit worse on wet tarmac, especialy when it is about braking, but still they are much more better than any other tyres that I have used. I drove 25.000 miles (quattro) and my front tyres were used on the edges, probably my driving style caused it :) Nevertheless, 4mm of the tread left. I highly recommend ContiSportContact 3.

    I am very disappointed. I bought them for the second time because they were the best tyres that I ever had. I weared them in my Subaru Impreza Wrx STi (4x4, 320HP/520Nm) - my car sticked to the tarmac realy well. I have tested them on air fields during rain, between cones etc They were just briliant. Today, few years later I put the same tyres in the same size to my Mercedes E350 CDi Coupe (RWD, 231HP/540Nm) and it turned out that they cannot transfer the torque to the tarmac. I've tested them on asphalt... I heated them to over 50C degrees and it was the same. My car skids every time when I put the pedal to the metal. My ESP turns on as well. Don't recommend.

    I've already used second set of ContiSportContact3 in my Passat B6 170HP TDI CR. I had them since they were new and I have to addmit that they are just splendid. Both sets I used to the usage indicator. Very good tire for agressive style of driving as well as for calm driving. Brilliant on wet and dry tarmac. Perfect water draining. You can almost feel the optimal temperature on dry tarmac. At high speed of 150MPH my car feels to handle pretty confident. Thanks to the sport tread the rolling resistance is really low and they are silent. I've tested them on snow as well. They behave good, but winter is not their purpouse.I drove over 20k miles on one set.

The Continental ContiSportContact 3 is a summer tyre designed for premium-range passenger cars. "Extremely sporty and uncompromising on safety” is how its manufacturers describe it.

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.


Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
