Recently, our tire testers got the opportunity to drive on Continental's ContiForceContact, a new entry into the Streetable Track & Competition performance category. While this option isn't quite a racing slick, it's definitely built with the track in mind. This class of tire allows an enthusiast to drive his or her car to the track and then compete in the event on the same set of tires.
The ContiForceContact was matched up against some stiff competition in the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup and Toyo Proxes R888. It displayed impressive levels of grip and handling, and unusually good wet weather traction for the category. Progressive breakaway and neutral handling balance made this tire very driver-friendly. This tire can thrill you during hot laps with its precise handling and confidence-inspiring demeanor, while still being able to get you to and from the track, rain or shine.
While Streetable Track & Competition tires aren't for everyone, they are for drivers who want to get more from their car at the track than even the most capable road tire can delivery. Developed at the world famous Nurburgring circuit, the Continental ContiForceContact brings together Continental's racing and passenger car tire technologies.
