Continental introduces ContiForceContact
Continental Tire the Americas LLC is debuting its ContiForceContact ultra-high performance passenger tire which will be sold exclusively through The Tire Rack.
Designed for performance vehicles, the ContiForceContact was developed at the Nürburgring motorsports complex in Germany for performance on the track. At the same time, the tire is DOT-approved for street use.
“We’re happy to bring our racing and passenger car technologies together to give our enthusiasts the tire they’ve been asking for, ContiForceContact,” says Travis Roffler, director of marketing for Continental Tire. “There’s nothing better than a day at the track. And we’ve constructed a tire that will provide the driving aficionado a great day on-track while getting them to and from the track with confidence.”
Benefits and features of this tire include:
- Precise handling: A solid center rib and strong macro block shoulders ensure high steering precision.
- Optimum cornering grip and consistent, fast lap times: Black Chilli compound contains special grip resins which enhances intermeshing between the tire and the pavement on the microscopic level.
- Confidence on wet roads: Wide circumferential grooves in the center, and bi-directional drainage grooves on the inside, efficiently evacuate water to resist hydroplaning. Surface-modified silica provides enhanced grip on wet surfaces.
The tire will be available beginning Dec. 1, 2013, in 10 sizes ranging from 225/40ZR18 to 325/30ZR19.
