    Default Continental Sport Contact 3.....

    Does anyone know anything about the new Continental Sport Contact 3 Tyres ??

    I've been placed in a position where it would be ideal to get two new front ones, and they dont do Continental Sport Contact 2 tyres from where I have to get them replaced.

    Are the new Contact 3 tyres compatible with the Contact 2's as I will still have these on the rear ????

    Thank you..

    I have contact 3`s on the front and 2`s on the back, they look very similar, can`t see a difference unless you really look at them, they seem to be OK, but toyo`s will be replacing them when they wear out ..

    You'll be fine Steve, but I would be tempted to put the new ones on the back, then when the 'older' fronts are worn out, get 2 more '3's

    Thats what I was going to suggest. I didn`t do it with mine as the fronts are well down anyway, so when they are gone it`s 4 new ones ...

    Don't blame you Tommy, If I did not do the miles which benefit Conti's, I would go Yokohama or Toyo's

    I got the set of Continental Premium Contact 2 http://www.conti-online.com/generator/www/uk/en/continental/cpc2/00-homepage/main.html

    Just before snowstorm few weeks ago . Works like a charm. But Im doing cruising mostly on motorways so the less noise on the speed and good grip on wet (even snow) road and improved cornering. Quite comfortable too (work well with suspension).

    Never liked the sport suspensions filling all bumps and holes by my butt is not the appealing option. The ideal suspension for me should be soft like on old Citroens. Its a pity that most suspension kits for Vectra comes in sporty style not in comfy.
