Performance Tires – Review of the ContiSportContact 3
The Conti SportContact 3 performed well across the three categories of testing which were cornering, speed, and wet roads. In the wet test it performed very well out in the sand and was able to maintain a high speed over several corners. During the dry road test it performed very similar to its summer tire test performance. Both of these performance figures are great considering the fact that drivers are typically driving at least forty-five miles per week during the summer season.
When it comes to steering precision, the Conti SportContact 3 was rated third out of all drivers. On the speed front, it performed well but as expected, compared to other Conti tires, it did not perform as well when entering tight bends. Its best performance came when accelerating and coming to a stop. As always with Conti tires, the Conti SportContact 3 offers excellent braking control. Combined with its stiffer sidewalls and thicker tread, it offers a unique combination of high traction with incredible stopping power. This is one of the most popular performance tires available today and is highly recommended by many professionals.
