    Questions and Answers for the Continental Sport Contact 5

    2016-04-22 - What is difference between Continental SC-5 and SC-5 XL? I drive BMW F10 528i.

    The XL denotes eXtra Load. The Sport Contact 5 XL will be a higher load rating than the non-XL tire and designed to carry extra loads at higher tire pressures.


    2016-05-11 - With run-flats, not necessary for a spare. If intending to change to non run-flats, does that mean I would require 5 wheels/tires? If so, no location for the spare wheel.

    When switching from runflat tires (in the case of Continental the SSR range) to non runflats, it is a good idea to get a space saver wheel for your boot. An alternative option is a compressor and tire "slime", but these only temporarily fix very small punctures so aren't applicable in every deflation scenario.


    2016-10-21 - Is it safe to mix Continental Sport Contact 5 M0 and Continental SportContact5 on the front wheels of my Mercedes C220 cdi? Are they compatible?

    While it is safe, it is not advised. Tires should always be matching pairs across the axle, and there could be modifications to the structure or compound of the MO version of the Sport Contact 5.


    2016-10-20 - Is there a difference between Continental SportContact5 and Sport Contact 5 M0

    The MO version of the Sport Contact 5 has been specifically tweaked for Mercedes.


    2022-07-02 - Hello! I’ve just bought an audi q3 40 tfsi quattro stronic with black line trim (sport suspension) with 40.000km and 3 years. Front tires are hankook ventus s1 evo3 XL AO (coming from factory-3 years old) and rear tires are continental sport contact 5 XL AO (new). With this configuration, ride is top notch with good roads but if it is in worse condition, suspension is too harsh and road noise is too high. What change do you advice me to do in front tires to have more confort and less noise? Maybe goodyear? Is true thar there is no problem with quattro traction in changing tires of only one axle? Thanks in advance!!!

    You didn't mention what wheel size you have but the SportContact 5 is a reasonably comfortable UHP tire so it's unlikely you'll see a huge improvement in comfort without changing wheel sizes.

    These tires came fitted to my wife's car, so when she needed 2 fronts replaced on MOT I stuck with the same on the rear, imagine my surprise when less than 5000 miles later the fronts were on the legal limits AGAIN!, and now the rears were done too. My wife does not drive like a boy racer either so the tires have not been thrashed. Performance wise I can not fault them but they are high end tires which are not cheap and wear out faster than my bank balance can keep up unfortunately, would not buy again on wear only (sorry).

    Both rear tires changed to Continental Sport Contact 5 in May 2021. Tread under 3mm by September 2022, only 12,000 miles. Premium brand that does not last. Never had a set of tires wear so quickly.

    Tires arrived with the Car from the factory. lasted 2 years and 20000miles , and not in a great condition at all.. wear condition is very high , and the tire became dry after a year and a half. almost all of them are dry (even thaw i park in the shade) and are not grippy at all.

    Mercedes Benz C63 AMG (235/40 R17) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
    Grip in dry is good. At 4mm onwards, wet grip deteriorates badly, it's dangerous, you would not go 100km/h, only 80km/h to be safe, even then, you'll prefer not to use them. Wears quickly compared to other tires like Potenza RE002 & Re003, Pilot Sport 3 & 4, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3. They are soft, and stone sticks to tires, even in basement carpark where no tires has ever picked up anything, this tire will stick any stone to it, as a result, i get lots of stones being flicked up and causing lots of paint chips under rear bumper, side skirt, even rear arch from front tires flicking stone down the side of the car. Soft but not as much grip as Pilot Sport 4 which aren't soft like this and last longer. These tires are also not comfortable at all, at 4mm and below, it's downright harsh, you feel like you're in a racecar, running over cateyes, you think you run over a sharp stone that is 5x higher.

    good tires but at 27,000 kilometres they will be done by 30,000. I don't believe these tires are particularly well suited to NZ roads, probably better on euro roads? with AWD you certainly get the grip and sure-footedness, but this does come at the price of tire wear. these are a summer tire, I might look for an all season tire next. just on here doing my research before I decide what I want instead of these

    Given 79% while driving a BMW BMW X1 (225/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 21,700 spirited miles
    I fitted these tires after a set of Yokohamas (great btw) to have a sporty tire that was also runflat and long lasting. They are a bit noisy, but generally all RFT tires are. Much more comfortable than the P7 Cinturato that came with the car. The tires were very good even at the end of their life, they dropped performance on the last 1000km at the rear especially (they were done). I only experienced a slight issue when hitting water with only one of the tire in a bend, the car unsettled and the traction control got confused for a second, but generally were very good on wet and acquaplaning so, maybe was a combination of tire-car-surface-speed. I would recommend them for 4WD cars such as mine, very progressive even when you push them.

    This is my first car and didn't know that these tires could be that bad almost cost the lives of my family. I bought this new car from official seller in my city and didn't imagine the tire that came with the car could be in almost totally broken condition after around 4 years. I only drove around 12000 miles with very normal speed. A lot of parts on the tires have already missing and any human can easily tell using these tires were extremely dangerous. I read a lot of user reviews and pick PS4/F1A5 after I learn that I was in big risk with these tires and I didn't even know. The funny thing is this tire is not even cheap at all. I normally don't write review but I hope this review can save your life. I learn so much about tire after seeing these broken tires attach to my car and make sure I would not make this same mistake again. By the way the broken conditions of all 4 tires are pretty even so it was not because any other road factors.

    Given 56% while driving a BMW 130i M (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 7,000 spirited miles
    Annoying on-centre precision, too many steering corrections to keep it straight. This happened in my 130i and Megane rs175, I couldn't wait to change them just because of this. I fitted it in two cars because I couldn't believe how bad it was in the BMW and thought the car had a problem with the steering. And I wanted to like the tire. But no, the Megane became crap with them too. Grip in the dry is and stability are quite good, but the balance is towards too much understeer and isn't fun to drive at all, especially on the BMW because you can't steer the car with the throttle. Not progressive enough in the wet, showing a decent grip limit, but too agressive breakaway and too long recovery time; I didn't trust this tire in the wet, especially in the BMW. Wear is average if you drive gently. Comfort is borderline acceptable for me, as there's too many vibrations after the initial touch with impacts. This effectively reduces the peak force, but doesn't provide enough roundness or quality feel. I can't recommend this tire as it doesn't suit my driving style nor my comfort preferences.

    These were the original tires fitted to the car on delivery from new. They have covered 20k miles. Mostly motorway driving. They are good in both dry and wet conditions. Wear has been reasonable albeit 75% of the miles have been covered on motorways, so relatively low stress driving. Performance is predictable but then again the Audi has quattro so it's difficult to be absolutely sure. The only criticism is that they are quite noisy.

    Mercedes Benz (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 22 spirited miles
    I bought my used Mercedes four years ago and it had two just about legal Continental Sport Contacts on the front and new Yokohama Sport 245/45 R17 on the back. I immediately had the two fronts replaced with Continental Sport Contacts. Today I replaced those two tires again after 22,000 miles (35,000 kms). The Yokohamas are long gone as they covered only 9,000 miles. I have been very pleased with the Continentals. Handling, wear, wet and dry grip are excellent. Comfort is fine, especially considering my car has slightly lowered suspension. The tires are reasonably priced in the UK for a premium tire. The Yokohamas are just £1 cheaper each than the Continentals. I replaced the Yokohamas on the rear with 245/45 R17 Sport Contact 5, they have done 13,000 miles and I estimate they will cover another 4,000-5,000 miles on my rear wheel drive car which has an automatic gearbox.

    4y9m, 75000km. Amazing tires all in all, at the end the tires looked like they had maybe 5000-8000km left in them when looking at the tread but a puncture opened up a box of shock, inside the tire there was about 3-4 handsfull of rubber "dust" from the tire slowly disintegrating, I've had a feeling somthing was off for the past 4 months or so as the tires behaved different at highway speeds so I kinda knew it was time to change but the fact that the tire visually from the outside looked fine but was falling apart inside was a bit of a shocker, so for anyone else out there if your tires starts to feel like they are unbalanced... have a look inside the tire.
