    Default 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:


    “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!

    I have always been a fan of the DW. I thought it the best street tire I have used. I have never had the michelins due to my own cheapness. I can't wait to try the new and improved DW Sport! I'm going out to wear out some old DW now...

    You'll be quite happy with the significant improvement of the ExtremeContact Sport. (Not DW Sport).

    I always wanted to try the Conti DW but they never made a 15" size. The Conti EC Sport is available in 205 50 15 so they're on the list for my next set of street tires for the Miata.

    How do these compare to the BF Goodrich G-Force Sport Comp 2?

    A little better across every category - like a PSS.

    Really excited about this tire! I've run a few Continental's on my motorcycles but never had them on a car. Considering putting these on my Fiance's Fiat 500 Abarth she uses for autocross instead of another set of Nitto NT-05s.
