Ultra-high performance from Continental CONTINENTAL ECOCONTACT 5


9

The Continental Eco Contact 5 tyres are premium summer tyres suited for mid-sized and compact class vehicles. The tyres offer outstanding handling capabilities on both wet and dry road surfaces. You can be assured of excellent value for money with these tyres. This is due to the optimised rolling resistance, which results in reduced fuel consumption.

Increased responsiveness of braking: The tread pattern of the tyre ensures a reduced braking distance on wet roads. This has been improved to provide motorists with excellent safety standards, ensuring a positive and comfortable driving experience.
Improved handling characteristics: The tyres exhibit exceptional handling characteristics due to the innovative tread design. This reduces sidewall deformation in area above the tyre rim. As a result, there is more precise transmission of lateral forces to the road, resulting in better control on the car.
Stable driving in wet conditions: The tyres offer exceptional safety without compromising on performance and handling. The excellent grip qualities ensure you can feel comfortable when driving, no matter how poor the conditions.
Extended tyre longevity: The tread pattern exhibits extra thin sipes, which reduce tread deformation and minimise energy loss. This leads to reduced rolling resistance which not only will extend the tyre life; it will also ensure lower fuel consumption.

Quieter than Pirellis

Had a puncture, could only undo 1 nut. Breakdown guy said massively variable torque on each nut. His battery tool wasn't strong enough and he had to use a yard long torque spanner. Disappointed really. I like to change my own tyres myself.

The amount of grip when new was phenomenal. Road noise reduced dramatically

A bit pricey for what they are

Very balanced performance. Provide confidence in all conditions with predictable and controllable slip when it occurs.

Not sure about the wear rate yet, possibly a little higher than expected. Time will tell.

Nothing to do with the tyres but the service received regarding delivery of the tyres was atrocious. Twice I was told they were at the fitting centre in Aberdeen and had two waisted journeys.

The tyres are very good and give confidence in all conditions, especially in the wet

Too soon to properly comment on tread wear hence an 8 for now. The only real negative is the noise from the tyres though this may well be due to suspension geometry causing 'Sawtoothing' - the Goodyears on the back are affected by this and are far more noisier but is something I have to live with.
