Not only does the purchase of Continental brand tires purchased as a replacement tire ensure quality and performance, it also provides an extra measure of confidence with the support of the Total Confidence Plan.
The ContiSportContact™ 3 unique high performance tread design greatly improves responsiveness and cornering stability. The special tread design also provides exceptional handling and braking even in wet conditions, and the tire's structure enhances handling as well as high speed capabilites.
Combined with the innate noise reduction forces built into the tire, the ContiSportContact™ 3 is a powerfully agile high performance tire as comfortable on the highway as it is on the street.

Substitute for Dunlop Sport 9000's on Lotus EspritI had the Contact 3 tires installed on my Esprit when unable to find the Dunlop Sport 9000's which came with the car.
In summer and even in dry but cold situations the tires are excellent. I am unable to comment on treadlife and in fairness, have not been to the track. Haven't driven them in snow and don't intend to.
This said, they complement a high performance sports car.

good valuei bought the contisports to replace the stock michelins on my acura tl-s. the new tires have comparable dry grip, better wet grip, slightly harsher ride with the offset of a bit better turn-in response, and they are very slightly more loud. i'm at the point now when the michelins would be getting low on tread, but the contis still have at least half of it's tread left.

15k Road VibrationsPrior to my 15k maintenance I began experiencing vibrations at 65-75 mph. My dealer told me it is the tires and I should replace them in 5k. I will not buy these as I have to replace every 20k.
