Continental ContiSportContact 3

Hey Guys,

Just bought a set of SVT 5 spoke rims off of the Kijeej (Kijiji). They came with a set of Continental ContiSportContact 3 tires one em. Aobut 70% tread left. Just wondering if anyone here runs these tires and what youre thoughts are on them.

Thanks!

Those tires came stock OEM on my 2012 Titanium. They are pretty good all around tires. "H" rated all season good wet and dry traction, good grip, good wear. I got about 50k on mine but you could almost see the air in them when I changed them.

Those are great tires & are either V or W rated depending if its a 91W or a 87V load rating. Great max performance tires, these aren't a/s tires. A great replacement & stick w/ Continental is DW's.

Strange... my oem Continentals conti pro contact tires were 215/50/17-91H... they were H rated tires with a UTQG rating of 500 AAA. I believe the harder H rated compound is why I got nearly 50k out of them. I think if they were Z or W you would see more like 30k wear on them. You can look them up on tire rack...

The 17" Contipro's have been discontinued. Tirerack shows them on backorder and the newer cars are shipping with Cooper Zeons.

I was not talking about what I put back on my car... I was referring to what it came with and the original post... I replaced them with Nexen N5000's.. They are H rated as well
