The ContiSportContact Vmax’s tread and carcass were adapted to the high technical requirements. The tire features slightly reduced tread depth and a tread structure with more grooves on the inner part of the tire to reduce heat generation. The tire also has new cooling grooves and deeper, wider tread grooves that lead to better dissipate heat and allow a safe and dynamic way of driving at top speeds.
Another popular, innovative Continental tire is the ContiTouringContant CT/CH/CV/CW95. This product line is perfect for high-performance touring cars. They offer a smooth, low-noise ride and an unbeatable warranty. These tires feature a tri-radial tread contour that provides better wear, quiet ride, and a greater resistance to hydroplaning. The tire’s unique compound lowers rolling resistance for better gas mileage.
