The ContiForceContact, which the tiremaker said was developed at the world famous Nürburgring, is engineered for track and street performance.

“We’re happy to bring our racing and passenger car technologies together to give our enthusiasts the tire they’ve been asking for, ContiForceContact,” said Travis Roffler, director of marketing for Continental Tire. “There’s nothing better than a day at the track. And we’ve constructed a tire that will provide the driving aficionado a great day on-track while getting them to and from the track with confidence.”

According to Continental, the tire features a solid center rib and strong macro block shoulders for high steering precision; “Black Chilli” compound with special grip resins to enhance intermeshing between the tire and the pavement on the microscopic level, resulting in outstanding dry grip; and wide circumferential grooves in the center, plus bi-directional drainage grooves on the inside, to evacuate water to resist hydroplaning.

The ContiForceContact, offered in 10 sizes ranging from 225/40ZR18 to 325/30ZR19, will be available for purchase exclusively through Tire Rack beginning Dec. 1.
