Continental Premium Contact 5 Tyres – For All Round Superior Performance
For everyday car drivers like you and me, an all-rounder tyre is one that provides the best of everything – performance, safety and fuel efficiency. But in reality, you have to often compromise on any one parameter to achieve the other two. Continental Tyres, one of the world’s premium tyre manufacturers, knows exactly what customers want and has recently launched the Continental Premium Contact 5 tyres - all-rounder tyres in every sense of the word.
The Continental Premium Contact 5 tyres are part of the Continental Premium Contact range, for mid-range to premium cars with more than 300 original equipment approvals. The Continental Premium Contact 5 tyres are the perfect follow-on for the popular Continental Premium Contact 2 tyres.
Continental PremiumContact5 Tyres Performance
The Continental Premium Contact 5 tyres deliver the best performance (in their category) in areas of braking responsiveness, wet safety, handling characteristics and ride comfort.
The Continental PremiumContact5 tyres exhibit an asymmetric tread pattern, where the outer tread shoulder is equipped with macro tread blocks, similar to the tread pattern in the Continental Sport Contact tyres. These tread blocks enhance surface contact on dry surface, improving the braking responsiveness and reducing braking distances significantly.
The tread grooves of the Continental PremiumContact5 tyres have 3D edges. During wet weather driving, these edges cut the surface water sharply like windscreen wipers, paving the way for greater contact between the rubber and surface. The enhanced surface adhesion reduces braking distances on wet surface.
Also because of efficient water deflection, the resistance to aquaplaning increases, reducing chances of uncontrollably skidding on wet roads, even when you are driving at high speeds.
- Handling Characteristics and Ride Comfort
In tyre design and development, balancing handling characteristics and ride comfort is difficult and usually one is sacrificed for the other. Not so with the Continental PremiumContact5 tyres
The Continental PremiumContact5 tyre sidewall design is optimised in such a manner as to ensure that both these goals coexist. The sidewall compound is flexible enough to increase ride comfort, but it is internally reinforced with a strong bead area that minimises distortion and transmits steering forces more precisely.
The tread of the Continental Premium Contact 5 tyres is equipped with innovative ‘whisper bars’, which absorb external noise, enabling you to experience a quiet and peaceful ride at all times.
The unique sidewall design of the Continental Premium Contact 5 tyres also reduces energy losses along the tyre shoulder, resulting in lowered rolling resistance. Independent magazine tests have shown the Continental Premium Contact 5 tyres to offer as much as 12% improvement in mileage performance over other tyres in the category.
