Passenger Tyres CONTINENTAL

SportContact™ 5


Product Breakdown

About this tyre

  • Excellent road grip and handling just as safety when cornering
  • Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions
  • Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage

Excellent road grip, handling and safety when cornering

The macro-block design of the tyre’s outside shoulder provides a larger contact area, which can therefore adapt optimally to the road surface. The ContiSportContact™ 5 offers improved road grip and thus more safety when cornering.

Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions

When braking, the tyre has a high natural frequency within the compound. Short-chain polymers in the Black Chilli compound of the ContiSportContact™ 5 react to this braking frequency and thus provide optimal energy absorption. The resulting heat shortens the braking distance on wet and dry roads.

Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage.

At a constant speed, the vibrations in the compound are significantly lower. The long-chain polymers within the compound can release the absorbed energy better, resulting in considerably reduced rolling resistance. Thus, the tyre runs more easily and remains cool – for a higher mileage and a reduced fuel consumption.

Tyre Benefits

ContiSure Warranty

ContiSure Warranty for all Continental-branded passenger, LCV, SUV and 4×4 tyres.

Continental Tyre South Africa offers customers the ContiSure Warranty when purchasing Continental-branded tyres from participating BestDrive, Tiger Wheel and Tyre and Tyres & More dealers.

This ContiSure Warranty enables customers to receive a credit towards the purchase of a new replacement tyre, when suffering irreparable damage to a tyre, and is applicable across South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland.

With the ContiSure Warranty, if the tyre is damaged within the first 30 days or 2 000 km after purchase and cannot be repaired, the customer receives a full credit towards the purchase of the same, or similar, new Continental tyre.

For incidents occurring after 30 days or 2 000 km from inception of the ContiSure Warranty, the value warranted is calculated by firstly measuring the remaining tread of the damaged tyre, and deducting from that the 1.6 mm Continental’s recommended Tread Depth limit. This figure represents the remaining tread, which is expressed as a percentage of the original tread depth and thereafter multiplied by the original purchase price (after discounts) of the tyre as recorded on the Original Sales Invoice. The rand value as determined using the above formula constitutes the credit value which the Customer will be entitled to use towards the purchase of a new replacement Continental branded tyre. The Customer receives a capped credit up to the value of R2 500.
