Superb braking performance for real high performance cars: The ContiSportContact 3
One of the most crucial requirements of tires fitted on high performance, sports cars is agile steering precision. This ensures your vehicle maintains good adherence to the road in face of the considerable forces acting on the tires when driving at high speeds, making abrupt manoeuvres or changes in road surfaces. The asymmetric tread ribs on the ContiSportContact 3 are designed to absorb these forces.
On dry roads, the new tread pattern ribs provide outstanding braking capability and steering precision, by absorbing the forces exerted on braking. This means a reduction in stopping distances.
On wet surfaces, the unique grooves allow increased clearance of water for better resistance to aquaplaning.
New: The asymmetrical pattern ribs.
The pattern ribs provide shorter braking distances.
Longitudinal forces come into effect when braking. These forces are retained by the continuous pattern ribs due to their high longitudinal stiffness. The result is an improved braking performance.
The asymmetry secures improved steering precision.
During swift and abrupt steering manoeuvres high lateral forces act on the pattern ribs from the outside. The angled sides stabilise the ribs and reduce their deformation under such forces thus resulting in an increased steering precision.
Rim Protection FR = Tires with rim protection.
ZR = Approved for speeds over 240 km/h. Please note that the actual speed will be individually calculated by the tire manufacturer depending on the axle loads, tire inflation pressures and wheel alignment.
