Track Day Magic with Continental's ContiForceContact

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.

Current size selection is limited, so we're hoping to see more sizes in the future. If your size is not currently available, check out other Streetable Track & Competition options.

I have a little Mazda Miata. The stock rim is 14", but the majority of serious performance drivers have changed to 15" wheels. I would love to see the Continental's Contiforce Contact tire available is two or three 15" sizes. 185 60r 15, 205 60r 15, 215 55r 15. Or some combination of these sizes. I drive my little Miata mostly in the summer. I'm not looking for an all weather tire or even high mileage tire, but something sticky. I would not mind paying $100 to $150 for a tire like this. (see Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500, 195 55-15) (Bridge. Pot. RE760 Sport, no 15") (BFGood. g-Force Sport Comp-2 195 55 15) But I think the Continental is a better tire, just not available in my size.
I looking for great performance on paved curved roads for some real fun driving.

Mike, Since the Conti is not yet available in one of your listed sizes, I would recommend taking a look at a similar type of tire in a 205/60R15, the Yokohama Advan A048 (a streetable track tire):
