The Continental ContiSportContact 5 SSR is a high performance summer passenger tire. This model has outstanding dry and wet traction, but it is not suited for winter conditions. The tire’s reinforced sidewalls withstand the vehicle’s weight for 50 miles after the loss of air pressure, due to the run flat technology used in making the tire. Its cornering ability and power were enhanced and the braking distance was shortened by the special tire compound, making the drive safer. This model reduces fuel consumption, as it stays cooler while driving, which also enhances the ContiSportContact 5 SSR’s performance.
