Continental, ExtremeContact SPORT tire review -with Motec Data (MotoIQ)

Hey guys,

Check out MotoIQ.com's tire test of the brand new Continental ExtremeContact SPORT -which debut earlier this month:

They aren't offered in Gen 2-3 Viper rear sizes, but they do come in 325/30-19 & 335/25-20. If those sizes fit your setup, or in general for your other sports car or sedan, these may be a great option to a Michelin Pilot Super Sport.


“Same level dry performance as a Michelin Pilot Super Sport”. That is a HUGE statement by Continental when the PSS is hands down the segment leading benchmark. Continental is extremely proud of their brand new ExtremeContact™ Sport tire that was just released earlier this month as a replacement for their ExtremeContact™ DW tire. We logged nearly a thousand miles on the new Sport in both the wet and dry, and put it up against the outgoing DW in a back to back test at Palm Beach International Raceway to see if it lives up to Continental’s claims.


In the article:

-In-depth analysis of the new (from the ground up) ExtremeContact Sport.
-Street review in the dry and wet.
-Track Test at Palm Beach International Raceway.
-Motec Data overlays back to back testing the Sport with the outgoing DW.
-Subjective Handling reviews.
-Deciphering Continental's product lineup.


TESTED: Continental Tire ExtremeContact Sport




Enjoy!

Do you know if these would perform any better in cold weather than the PSS?

These are good for the street. Can't say at the track. Have them on a Challenger now.

What do you call "cold weather"? Where do you feel the PSS lacks?

As their notes say, not good for freezing weather (I've verified that personally...). Say in the 30's or 40's? Where I live we get a lot of cold, sunny days during the winter. With the PSS's in the rear you need to be real careful.

Not many UHP tires are designed for those conditions. I've tracked MPSC2s in 30-40*F weather and it's not that bad after a lap once you get heat into them. On the street, I don't think it would be my car/tire of choice to be running around in the snow.

Didn't Michelin just release the Pilot PS4 to exceed the PSS performance?

I agree with this. If you are doing any track time in the cooler months, UHP tires can be very good options since they will hold their temps after they warmed up properly and get nice and tacky. And the compound will not get greasy from working them too hard in the heat of the day.

Did you consider the Pilot Sport 4S while looking for tires? I had the PSS on the XFR and really liked them compared to the Nitto 555 Extremes they replaced. Now that I have the SS the Bridgestone RE050s need to go in a bad way they are a terrible tire in every way compared to the Continentals and Michelins and are complete garbage under 50°.

I am leaning towards the 4S but the new Continentals look really tempting.

I would have considered the PS4 but didn't find my size in them. As mentioned, the Continentals were a significant improvement over Pirelli on the F Type and they were available in my size, so I rolled with it.

Unhappy

Tires are on. 1st impressions:

Pros - These tires ride great, definitely smoother than the Invo's. Traction and handling is comparable. The side profile looks better than the Invo's to me. The tread pattern is very similar to the Pilot Super Sport.

Cons - the 335/25/20 is pretty stretched on a 20x13 rim. They need to make a 345mm. The rubber absolutely sucks up any tire shine product that I put on there. 10 minutes later you can't even tell that I put anything on it.

Overall, I'm happy so far. I'll drop back in with an update as I get more miles on them.

Thanks for posting. The treadwidth of that Conti is 12" wide so yes that's a little bit more of a stretch than ideal. By comparison a 345/30-20 PS4S has a 12.4" treadwidth.

Can you take a closer picture of the sidewall from the same angle as your 2nd pic?

When the tire is fresh out of the mold, that's the best they will ever look. Why would you want to shine the tires any more than brand new? And, keep that crap off the tread surface!
