“Yet Another Ruined Tyre !”

Written on: 22/02/2012

I have now replaced FIVE Contisport C3 tyres due to bubbles appearing in the sidewalls. All of these tyres have had to be replaced long before they have worn out, due to bubbles appearing in the sidewalls. The bubbles are very soft and can be pushed in easily with your finger. They have varied from the size of a large marble, to one about the size of half a golf ball! I've searched the internet and this seems a common problem for these tyres. Dangerous! - No more Contisport for me!… Read Full Review

Similar experience. I've had to replace 3 of these tyres on my Volvo V70 D5 in the last 2yrs (less than 10,000 miles), the first within 2 months. Each time following contact with (minor) potholes on sufaced roads. Running over nice flat surfaces is fine, but the thin walls don't seem man enough for non-motorway UK roads. Motoring is expensive enough without having to rerplace these pricey tyres every 3,000 miles.

“After 12000 miles the front tyres are finished. This...”

Written on: 02/02/2010

After 12000 miles the front tyres are finished. This is just unacceptable when one considers that they are expensive and original equipment to my new Audi A4 Cabriolet, now only one year old. I would have to say that on rutted roads the tyres never did give any sense of directional stabilty. Under normal conditions they performed as well as any tyre might and it make me wonder if it is a better idea to by cheap tyres from a lesser known manufacturer. Having said that I have just purchased a set… Read Full Review

“Continental Sport 2 Tyres ”

Continental Sport 2 Tyres
I have a Passat Auto Estate November 55 plate, and was replaceing the front tyres every year (about every 10,000 miles). When I purchased the last set, I had them balanced by computer (elecronically), and this made an amazing difference with wear. I am about to replace the front two after approx 18000 miles (sorry dcn't have an exact figure).

These are probably the safest tyres I have ever had, so far as road holding and braking in all weather is concerned, and I can… Read Full Review

I found the Contisport tyres by accident, and wouldn't fit anything else to my vehicle... I once had a rear blow out in the middle of nowhere due to a puncture, replaced the back pair at a local branch of a well known tyre fitters with Michelin tyres, only to notice the handling, grip, and noise were nowhere nears as good as the Conti's (which incidentally cost about £20 less per tyre)… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/09/2009

I drive a mixture of motorway and twisty country roads. I don't hang about and enjoy an active drive. Continental ContiSport are the best tyres I've used and i'm on my second lot. Yes, they have only lasted 10 months/12000 but they've got me safely home in some terrible weather conditions, stop the car when I ask them to quickly and don't leave me sliding across a wet road on a tight bend… Read Full Review

this really is rubbish talked about "premium tyres" being better than budget..

think people, manufacturers stir up "worry" to make you part with your hard earned.

DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!! - KEEP YOUR MONEY IN YOUR POCKET NOT THEIRS

All western marketed tyres are manufactured to tight standards . they are all much of a muchness, tyre marketing departments aim to extract more $$$ from the "daft" crowd who think they know better !!!

Written on: 02/03/2009

Well where do I start? These Continental ContiSport Contact 2 tyres have caused so many problems it's unreal. These tyres were fitted to the Transit Sportvan's as standard and we are in a dispute with Ford at the moment for fitting them as standard to these vans. They have premature tyre wear like you wouldn't believe, , I did well to get 8,000 miles. The average of the vans were only getting 5,000 miles, not good. I was led here as the link to this review was left on the forum that has many… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/01/2009 by laurence 1 (1 review written)

The Continental ContiSport Contact 2 are quiet and good grip when new, both wet and dry, but very disappointed with poor wear despite frequent pressure and tracking checks, less than 15000 miles on a full set with not tracking faults or damaged sidewalls. Also seem to be a magnet for punctures with over 5 in 12 months.

Fitted 4 225.40.18s to Skoda VRS and fronts lasted around 12000 miles and rears now near limit at 15000… Read Full Review

Fitted the ContiSport Contact 2s on my 02 plate Seat Ibiza cupra 9 months ago. Have done just over 3000 miles and the front tyres need replacing already. Was very impressed with the grip these tyres give but replacing them every 3000 miles is a bit costly if you ask me. So will be looking for tyres that will last a bit longer… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/11/2008

If a tyre wears unevenly, then it's the car's fault NOT the tyre's. Also, if you want a grippy tyre, then it will have a soft compound, and soft compound tyres wear out quicker than hard compound tyres.
A lot better tyre than the cheaper Toyo/Nankang/Falken range, but you pay handsomely for the priviledge!… Read Full Review

“These tires were standard on my Seat Leon. ”

Written on: 05/11/2008

These tires were standard on my Seat Leon.
The tires give a very good grip in wet and dry conditions. They react like it should on the steering wheel and the car.
I went on track for some laps and I realised these tires really do the job. A good tyre with overall very good driving experience. Stable and reliable in all weatherconditions. (dry, rain...)… Read Full Review
