Continental ControlContact Sport AS Tire Review & Rating

An all-season ultra high performance tire, the Continental ControlContact Sport AS is designed to handle rain, shine, and snow without any problems. Built for drivers of sport coupes, sedans and crossovers, it features a superior tread design that is well equipped to deliver consistent and dependable driving.

The all-season tread compound and siping design system in place means that the tire can grip in wet and snowy conditions and this is enhanced via the extra biting edges. Aggressive tread and traction grooves maintain stability in all road conditions while the chamfered edges increase dry handling.

Wide shoulder blocks provide great handling and cornering stability while tread wear is even with computer optimization and stiffer tread blocks that work to decrease treadwear. Inside the tire you’ll find twin steel belts with a polyester cord body that add strength and durability.

The Continental ControlContact Sport AS tires can be found in 16 to 20 inch sizes and is available exclusively at Discount Tire. It comes with a 50,000 mile tread warranty.

Pros

  • All-season tire that handles a variety of conditions very well  
  • Consistent and dependable driving performance  
  • Even tread wear  
  • Excellent warranty for a UHP tire  

Cons

  • Nothing major stands out  

Overall Thoughts

There are not really any major draw backs with the ControlContact Sport AS tires from Continental. If we go looking for a problem then having slightly more protection to increase durability would be welcomed, especially considering that they are an all-season tire, however there have been no notable issues.

A great design matched by modern technology to ensure even tread wear and an impressive 50,000 mile warranty are all major benefits of driving on this tire. They do offer solid traction and grip in the winter months, which is perhaps more than can be said for most UHP all-season models.

Overall the ControlContact Sport AS is a good choice in high performance all-season tires. We rank them in the upper half of this class.
