Continental ContiPremiumContact 5
The Continental ContiPremiumContact 5 is a popular summer tyre for cars and SUVs. It was designed to combine performance with strong safety characteristics. Additionally, it also provides ride comfort, precise handling and reduced rolling resistance.
Continental's engineers have developed this tyre to react to individual driving styles. The ContiPremiumContact 5 offers exceptional grip in both wet and dry conditions. Plus, the resulting shorter braking distances help keep drivers safe.
The ContiPremiumContact 5 has a unique construction which also minimises rolling resistance. This saves drivers money by helping reduce fuel consumption overall, and having a less harmful impact on the environment.
Furthermore, the ContiPremiumContact 5's design includes optimised macro blocks that improve stability. They ensure excellent handling characteristics and grip. The design also features 3D edges that maximise the tyre's contact with the road, which further improves grip and shortens braking distances.
ContiSeal is a technology designed and patented by Continental. Highly innovative, it allows damaged tyre tread to seal in the event of a puncture by a small but impactful object, like a nail. This provides drivers with peace of mind that they won't have to stop and change their tyre at the roadside in a potentially dangerous situation. What's more, ContiSeal ensures holes in the tyre will remain sealed, even if the object that caused the puncture dislodges.
Self-Supporting Runflat (SSR) Technology
Continental's SSR technology is based on self-supporting, reinforced sidewalls. In the event of a puncture, this prevents the sidewall from being crushed between the rim and the ground. This consequently stops the tyre from slipping off the rim.
