Continental ContiSportContact 5 SSR SUV

Description

The ContiSportContact 5 SSR SUV is Continental's Street/Sport Truck Summer run-flat tire designed to provide temporary extended mobility in case of complete air loss due to a puncture. Initially developed to match the sporty driving characteristics of BMW crossover vehicles, ContiSportContact 5 SSR SUV tires are designed to offer short braking distances and good cornering traction in moderate to warm ambient temperatures. However, like all summer tires, it is not intended to be driven in near freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

The ContiSportContact 5 SSR SUV uses Continental's Black Chilli compound molded into an asymmetric tread design that features a macro-block outboard shoulder that adapts to the road surface to improve road grip and cornering stability. Four circumferential grooves channel water to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction. A continuous center rib and notched intermediate ribs promote steering response and straight-line tracking.

Continental's Black Chilli compound's short-chain polymers react to braking forces by building heat to shorten braking distance on wet and dry roads, while the compound's long-chain polymers release the absorbed energy more efficiently at constant speeds to reduce rolling resistance. Thus, the tire stops faster and remains cooler for longer life and reduced fuel consumption.

The tire's internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide (a mixture of heat-resistant synthetic aramid fiber and nylon threads) that enhance the ride quality while tuning the contact area's vertical flexibility and lateral rigidity. Reinforced self-supporting sidewalls prevent the inside of the tire from getting pinched between the road and the rim in the event of a loss of inflation.
