The Continental ContiSportContact 5P SSR has the newest technologies and racing-grade tread rubber for super high performance cars and runflat capabilities.
This racing grade tread compound has special resins that maximize traction on dry and wet roads, even under normal driving conditions. With the new carbon black and resin, this provides the rubber more flexibility for grip and rigidity for handling and performance at high speeds. The tread pattern itself is asymmetric with a continuous center rib and multiple small and interlocking tread blocks. These circumferential grooves make the water flow through the footprint making it resistant to hydroplaning. Its transverse block edges dissipate water away from the tread blocks for improved traction and grip on wet roads.
