The Conti Premium Contact 2 it is a summer tire with a totally new type of 3D grooves.
Its innovative tread technology optimizes braking performance on both wet and dry surfaces.
Thanks to the new 3D grooves, water is dispersed more efficiently, providing excellent protection against aquaplaning.
The 3D grooves also give superb stability to the whole tire. That s why the new Conti Premium Contact 2 is less prone to distortion, which vastly improves your car s manoeuvrability.
The innovative 3-D-Groove:
The distinctive feature of the new ContiPremiumContact 2 is its unique 3D tread grooves, which optimise braking performance on both wet and dry roads and achieve optimum protection against aquaplaning.
Shallow side for better braking on dry roads, steep side for better braking on wet roads:
The shallow side of the 3D groove gives greater tread block stability and improved road contact, which results in shorter braking distances on dry roads. Even when placed under great strain the tread blocks do not bend away and so the tire retains maximum contact with the road. This more even contact pressure ensures maximum transmission of power to the dry road.
The steep side of the 3D groove makes the edge of the tread block extremely angular. This enables it to cut through the water on the road, much like a windscreen wiper. The direct contact between the tire and road means exceptionally short braking distances, even in the wet.
Special shape of the 3D grooves for better resistance to aquaplaning:
The special shape of the 3D grooves (shallow and steep sides) means that as the water flows through, a swirl effect is created. The water is thus dispersed more rapidly and the risk of aquaplaning reduced.
The harmonious round shape of the ground contact patch also increases resistance to aquaplaning.
Improved handling thanks to asymmetrical tread pattern:
The compact outer shoulder and the reduced number of tread blocks ensure optimum road contact and excellent cornering stability. The double block structure of the inner ribs ensures high circumferential tread stiffness, which results in improved driving stability and braking performance. The open inner shoulder with its continuous lateral grooves and an increased number of tread blocks reduces rolling noise and disperses water efficiently, giving a comfortable ride and excellent protection against aquaplaning.

- September 20th, 2018The new tyres are fitted to my Classic car; a 1949 Riley Roadster. So far I have only done 200 km on the new tyres and in that short time I am delighted with the tyres as they have transformed the handling, ride and steering of the car. I am now looking forward to longer runs to really enjoy, what seems a perfect tyre for my Riley. The size of the tyre , 205/70 R16 almost match perfectly the circumference of the original 6.00X16 tyres, which would seem at this stage, to be an ideal tyre to suit our Riley's.
- September 11th, 2016These come as stock tyres on Mini Coopers and theyâre a nice tyre. Good in wet and dry, a very VERY comfortable ride with next to no noise and good tyre life. Iâve done about 40,000km and thereâs heaps, like HEAPS of meat left in them. They look kind of sporty too which makes the ride comfort that much more extraordinary. Iâll be coming back for another 4 of these when theyâre due for replacement!
- October 13th, 2016Tyres for my Tab 4. They are quiet and give a better ride than the previous tyres.
