    After buying and fitting new Continental ContiSportContact5 tyres, I was very positively surprised after the first kilometres driven. My car has close to 400 horsepower and I must say that the tyres do a great job in relation to the power and AWD. Absolutely sure handling on dry as well as wet pavement. I must admit that I had the opportunity to drive some more during snowy days. The continentals did not let me down in either. They were also tried on an asphalt track and gravel paths at high speeds. I will not write about tread wear, because everything depends on driver's imagination ;-) I highly recommend it for any car, you will not find a more universal tyre! To tell you the truth, Alladdin would be proud to have such a tyre on his flying carpet, and Ostrich the Pied Piper would certainly not brake any faster. Best regards to all Continental users, especially of the above-mentioned model :-)

    These are perfect for making progress with comfort, but if you want the sharpest handling at the expense of ride quality go for something with a stiffer sidewall like the Bridgestone Adrenalin

    Riding for 10 years and they are by far the best tires I have ever purchased. Very good grip tires on dry roads and wet, for me the tires do not have any defects and I use them for about half a year and the next tire they purchase it certainly will be a continental tires. 100% satisfaction.

    Tires are holding up well on dry and on wet roads, even though my car is 5 meters long. No complains even at excessive speed in sharp turns. Braking distance is really short. They are quiet and very well suppress any inequality. I recommend to all who have limos with high engine power.

    Very good and comfortable tire. Too creative rant tire safety. I can recommend with a clear conscience. Very good behavior on wet and b. Wet. Any slippage when starting with more than 300 horsepower engine.
